Veteran music director and lyricist Ravindra Jain, unfortunately passed away in Mumbai today at 4.10 pm. The visually challenged musician had been unwell for a long time (he was suffering from a urinary infection causing a problem in his kidney) and was undergoing treatment at a well known hospital in Mumbai for the same.
Ravindra went to Nagpur as he had commited himself to attend a concert which he had planned much earlier. However, he had to be admitted to a hospital in Nagpur because of his deteriorating health (because of which he couldn't even attend the concert) and was later shifted to Mumbai by a chartered air ambulance for treatment.
Jain had composed music for hit films like CHOR MACHAYE SHOR, GEET GAATA CHAL, CHITCHOR and ANKHIYON KE JHAROKHON SE in the 70s. It was believed that Raj Kapoor gave Ravindra his big break. Jain composed many super hit songs in movies such as RAM TERI GANGA MAILI, DO JASOOS and HEENA, which was directed by Randhir Kapoor.
During the 1980s and 1990s too, Jain widely composed music for many mythological movies and television serials, including Rajshri's.
Ravindra Jain is survived by his wife Divya Jain and son Aayushman Jain. May his soul Rest in Peace.
