Shocking Revelation: “Visit To The Kumbh Mela Killed Shravan Rathod,” Says Singer Udit Narayan



 Renowned  playback  singer Udit Narayan is  in deep mourning. “I  couldn’t sleep the  whole  night  after  hearing of Shravan Bhai’s  death. It  is  so disturbing to hear  of  his death. He  was like  my  own brother.We spent  many evenings together  chatting, and not just about music.  And to think  Shravan Bhai’s death   could have been  avoided!”

Please explain, I ask. Udit then  drops  a bomb. “Ignoring  all  attempts to  dissuade  him Shravan Bhai went to  the Kumbh Mela . He also dragged his  wife  along. I found this out by  chance when I called him  two weeks  ago. He said he  was at the Kumbh Mela. I  was shocked. Shravan Bhai had a   history  of  chronic illnesses. He  suffered  from high blood pressure and  acute diabetes. I  wish he had not taken this huge risk and  also  put his   wife under so  much risk. Shravan came  back and  contracted  Covid. His  wife  also has  Covid.And his  son Sanjeev(who is one-half of the two composer brothers Sanjeev-Darshan) also has it. What  can I say about this? Except that ,  the Kumbh Mela  should not be allowed at this time(of the pandemic).”

 Udit says  he is yet to take the  vaccine. “My son(singer Aditya  Narayan)   and his wife also got  the  Covid. He has been urging me  and my  wife to get the vaccine. But I am afraid to step out of  the house.”

Reminiscing about his  association with Shravan, Udit says, “He was  a saint in human form. No vices,  not a word  of malice against anyone. I am quite like that.  You will never hear mre  badmouthing  anyone or saying  bad things about the film industry. Why should I? For 40 years it has  given me  fame  and  fortune. Shravan Bhai was one of the lasting relationships I made in the industry.  Professionally we had a great bonding. I may have sung only one song in Aashiqui.  But it  was a superhit.Subsequently I sang many beautiful  songs for Nadeem-Shravan. According to me they were among the  best composers  of Hindi  cinema.  But it was  my  personal  bonding with Shravan Bhai  that  was special.”

So who among the  duo Nadeem and Shravan composed  most of the songs?

Udit  opens up, “Dekhiye, people think Nadeem  composed all the songs. But that’s not true. Shravan Bhai was  an exceptionally talented  musician. But yes,Nadeem would  do most of the  composing, while Shravan Bhai would arrange  the  tunes. He  was a very fine musician and an even better  human being. When he entered the  room you felt you were  in  the company  of a saint. I wish he had not gone to the Kumbh Mela.”
