Veteran music composer Khayyam passes away at 92 – Bollywood fraternity condoles

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Veteran composer Khayyam, best known for his music in classic films such as Umrao Jaan and Kabhi Kabhie, passed away after a prolonged illness at a Sujay hospital on Monday (August 19). He was 92.

Mohammed Zahur Hashmi, popularly known as Khayyam, was admitted to Sujay Hospital in suburban Juhu a few days ago owing to breathing issues and other age-related illnesses. 

“He was admitted to the hospital a few days ago owing to breathing issues and other age-related illnesses. He died at Sujay Hospital at around 9.30pm,” a family friend told PTI. 

 Khayyam’s mortal remains will be kept at his residential complex from 10 am onwards for people to pay their last respect. Thereafter, his funeral will take place with full state honour, the composer’s spokesperson said.

 Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to twitter conveying his condolence, “India will remain grateful to Khayyam Sahab for giving us some of the most memorable compositions, which will be remembered forever.”

“He will also be remembered for his humanitarian gestures to support upcoming artists. His demise is extremely saddening,” he added.

Lata Mangeshkar also tweeted that Khayyam’s demise is the end of an era in music.

“Great musician and a man with a kind heart, Khayyam sahab isn’t with us anymore. I am so saddened to hear this, I can’t put it in words. With Khayyam sahab, an era of music has ended. I offer my humble tribute to him,” she wrote.

The iconic singer said though she loved working with Khayyam, she was also scared because he was a perfectionist.

“Khayyam sahab would treat me as his younger sister. For me, he used to make his special songs. I loved working with him but would also be a little scared because he was a perfectionist. His understanding and knowledge of Shayari was exceptional,” she tweeted.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan remembered the music veteran as “a soft-spoken, amiable soul”, who contributed to his several films, including ‘Kabhi Kabhie’ and ‘Trishul’.

“…KHAYAM sahib…for all the memorable music he conducted and produced .. prayers condolences,” Bachchan tweeted.

Umrao Jaan director Muzaffar Ali remembered Khayyam as a “storehouse of feelings, emotions and music”. Going down the memory lane, the director said it took Khayyam and him almost two years to create music for the film, 1982 classic.

“Day in, day out, I used to go to him. He used to stay at my house. It was an evolution of music. Today, no composer, director or producer will spend so much time on making the music. We left no stone unturned for this film’s music,” Ali said.

Lyricist Javed Akhtar, in a tweet called Khayyam a ‘great music director’, and said his composition – ‘Voh Subah Kabhi To Aayehi’ – makes him immortal. 

Directors Karan Johar and Madhur Bhandarkar, and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor also condoled his death remembering Khayyam’s immense contribution to music.

The musician’s other notable works include films such as “Trishul”, “Noorie” and “Shola Aur Shabnam”.

  In 2007, Khayyam was honoured with the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in Creative Music by the Sangeet Natak Akademi, India’s national academy of music, dance and theatre.

Four years later, he was conferred the Padma Bhushan, the country’s third highest civilian award. In 2016, the veteran composer established Khayyam Jagjeet Kaur KPG Charitable Trust and pledged to donate his entire wealth to the trust to support budding artists and technicians in India.

Zara Hatke Zara Bachke poster Sara Ali Khan Vicky Kaushal

Laksham Utekar directorial, Zara Hatke Zara Bachke starring Sara Ali Khan and Vicky Kaushal releases today, June 2. The story of the movie revolves around, an Indore-based couple, who wants to live independently of their family and wants to take advantage of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), the government of India’s flagship programme, they seek a divorce.


Zara Hatke Zara Bachke is a typical Bollywood film that is pretty relatable to an Indian-middle-class family. Vicky Kaushal and Sara Ali play the two college sweethearts Kapil and Saumya, who are smitten with one another. After getting married, they stay with Kapil’s family, where they frequently run into family members and find it challenging to spend time romantically or even in seclusion. The son of his mother snoozes between the two. They don’t have any space to themselves in the cramped house, and the maternal aunt of Kapil is your standard family villain who nags Saumya whenever she gets the chance.


The film uses the same humor and a regular storyline that is always there in Bollywood films. Although the second half of the movie drags, the heartwarming end will change the entire plot upon which the movie is made. A love triangle is also shown, which adds to the chaotic trip.
At times, the entertainment factor wears us out and makes us bored.

The second portion of the story likewise appears to drag. However, Vicky Kaushal gives a good performance and pulls off the small-town penny-pinching gentleman role nicely. In contrast, Sara Ali Khan gives an honest performance as both a fiery Punjabi girl and a middle-class bahu. The supporting cast, which includes Harcharan Chawla, Inaamulhaq, Rakesh Bedi as Saumya’s father, Kanupirya Pandit as mama and mami, Neeraj Sood, and Akash Khurana as Kapil’s father, give solid performances. The cinematography by Raghav Ramadoss and the charming tunes by Sachin-Jigar perfectly depict Indore’s small-town character and eccentricities.
