It's the end of an era with the demise of music director Shravan Rathod of the popular Nadeem-Shravan duo. The music composer suffered multiple organ failure and lost battle to COVID-19 on Thursday (April 22, 2021) at a hospital in Mumbai. Indeed, a shattering news for every 90s kid who has grown up listening to songs composed by this iconic musician-duo.

Nadeem-Shravan composed music for films featuring some of the biggest stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan and others. When it came to romantic songs, the duo always had an edge over others and the proof is films like Aashiqui, Saajan, Raja Hindustani, Pardes, Dhadkan among others.


We have compiled for you folks, 10 of our most favourite Nadeem-Shravan compositions that we can never get tired humming, as they hold a special place in our hearts.

1. Bas Ek Sanam Chaahiye (Aashiqui)

Nadeem-Shravan gave the nation its first love anthem in the form of this song. The sound of the guitar strum right at the beginning of this track is enough to make you skip a heartbeat. A charming Rahul Roy in a nightclub and Kumar Sanu's melting voice, what more does one want when you are in the mood for some romantic vibes?

2. Bahut Pyar Karte Hain (Saajan)

Another romantic number from Nadeem-Shravan that has aged like fine wine! Watching Madhuri Dixit confess her feelings for her unseen lover in this song, makes our hearts flutter, but isn't that how you feel when you are in love?

3. Yeh Dil Deewana (Pardes)

This was one of the rare instances when the music triumped over the film's story. In fact, Subhash Ghai had even said, "The music for Pardes is Nadeem-Shravan's best ever." So impressed was he with the duo's work that he gifted them each a new car, on top of their normal remuneration.

Speaking about this song in particular, 'Yeh Dil Deewana' is considered to be one of Sonu Nigam's most iconic songs. The singer was quoted as saying by a publication, "No one discovered my originality till they heard 'Yeh Dil Deewana'. I sang this song exactly how the director envisaged it, and both the song and film became a superhit, and I became the Sonu Nigam."
