The duo has been a part of incredible movies and quite particularly behind the success of Bollywood's superstar, Salman Khan.

Music composer Salim Merchant wrote, "Devastated with the news of the passing away of my brother Wajid of Sajid -Wajid fame". There had been no news of the late composer being hospitalized.

"He had multiple issues". He had a kidney issue and had a transplant a while ago. He had a kidney infection and was also tested positive for coronavirus.


News coming is that he was on a ventilator for the last few days and even was hit by the Coronavirus.

The video has him in the hospital bed, sitting with great vigour and confidence, singing to his most famous song from Dabangg. "We will miss u Wajid bhai thank u for the music", he said in a Tweet post. After which, he had even started singing the title track of Dabang 3 that gives us a small indication that maybe the video is from past year when the third sequel of the film had released. Check out the post here: Meanwhile, Gauri had recently shared a video AbRam having a gala storytime at home with SRK.

Playback singer Nigam was among the first to confirm the news, posting an image with Khan on Instagram with the caption: "My brother Wajid left us".

Wajid Khan had tweeted, "Iss ankh micholi ke khel mein hamesha ek dhoondhta hi rehta hai aur woh nahin paas aata jo chupp jaata hai mere bhai @irrfank Allah aapko iss suffer imaan ki taazgi aapki rooh ko sukoon mile Aameen".

Star actress Priyanka Chopra said, "Terrible news". He said that they used to talk nearly every weekend.


Sajid-Wajid most recently composed a song for Ali, to mark the occasion of Eid Al Fitr, which was released last week. We both have different styles of music so according to the film, we decide and divide our work. I know he was ailing for a while, regret not picking up the phone on him in this lockdown. Rest in peace my bhai. rest in peace and may Allah give Sajid and family strength. nothing I write will be enough today.
