The musician, who scored more than 100 Bollywood movies during his career, lost his battle with cancer at a hospital in Mumbai, India on Saturday (05Sep15), hours after turning 51 on Friday (04Sep15).

He had been hospitalised since July (15) after his blood cancer returned for a third time since his initial diagnosis in 2010.

Shrivastava's funeral took place on Monday (07Sep15), when Bachchan and Kapoor joined fellow actors Shekhar Suman and Ayesha Jhulka, singers Sonu Nigam and Pandit Jasraj, director Sudhir Mishra, and producers Pahlaj Nihalani and Anees Bazmee, among many others, to pay their final respects to the composer.

Honouring the memory of his longtime friend and collaborator, Bachchan took to his online blog to write, "Aadesh Shrivastava passed away... I lived my music with him... I live without him now... and perhaps my music too..."

The pals worked together on the films Baabul and Baghban.

In addition, Aadesh was known for his musical contributions to films such as Chalte Chalte, Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham... and Rajneeti, while he also performed popular tunes like Sona sona, Gustakhiyaan and Shava shava.
