Wajid Khan, higher often called the genial affable light and well mannered one-half of the Sajid-Wajid duo, handed away. That is the primary Corona loss of life of an individual I knew personally, and preferred immensely. Wajid was at all times sort light caring. The final we spoke was within the first week of November 2019 when the Dabangg track rendered by Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan needed to be re-recorded with an Indian singer. Wajid had simply recovered from a critical sickness. However he inquired my well being as if I used to be the ailing one between the 2 of us.
As for changing the Pakistani singer Wajid, a real Indian, mentioned, “This determination was unanimous. In relation to the nation, nothing else issues. We’d be prepared to sacrifice even our lives to guard our nation. How does sacrificing a singer matter? And we don’t even see it a sacrifice.”
Most of the individuals he labored intently with didn’t like me. However that didn’t color Wajid’s judgment in opposition to me. All the time heat and respectful, it’s arduous imagine Wajid who was observing Ramzan until the final week and ready daily to interrupt his quick along with his Mummy’s yummy meals, is now gone.
Says singer Aditya Narayan emotionally, “I’ve misplaced an enormous brother. He lived just some buildings away from me. So we consistently ran into each other.

Says the favored veteran ghazal, bhajan and movie singer Hariharan, “It’s so unhappy .Wajid handed away so abruptly! Very unfair I knew him. He had a charismatic smile. Everyone preferred him. I sang for them. His father, the well-known Tabla participant Ustad Sharafat Ali Khan was a good friend to me. Wajid’s father was a tabla Nawaz .We used to journey with Asha Bhosleji’s troupe. This was in 80’s.”
A fortnight again Hariharan and Wajid had collaborated over a track.
Says Hariharan, “19 days again I sang an anthem, a Covid initiative for his brother Sajid. Sajid was saying Wajid was not properly however he’s recovering and he mentioned he could be properly. ALAS! Issues took a flip for the more serious and he handed away .He was very arduous working .You can see the purity of Wajid’s soul when he used to speak to youngsters within the actuality present. He introduced a smile to us the viewers whereas watching the present .He was an infectiously candy individual.”
Composer Lalit Pundit (of Jatin-Lalit) says Wajid’s well being was precarious ever since a kidney transplant. “There was a variety of speak for the previous couple of days amongst the business people concerning Wajid going onto a ventilator! All of us knew he had a lot of well being issues and ever-increasing because the final four month, with a kidney failure and a transplant .He was additionally a excessive diabetic. Sadly he modified his hospital from Jaslok to elsewhere in Goregaon the place it appears he caught he lethal corona virus.

He was arduous working and did his greatest within the music that he gave along with his elder brother Sajid. We shared the Filmfare award for Dabangg 1 as ‘Munni Badnaam’ garnered all of the awards that 12 months in 2010/11.”

To make him really feel optimistic and upbeat, I proposed a cricket match once more this coming winter.
