The Indian Express quoted composer Shankar Mahadev saying,
“Aditya was only 35 and such a vivacious person. He was unwell for many many years actually. He had some physical ailments on and off, because of which he also had hypertension. He was unwell many years ago but then he recovered. He even got fit, but it recurred. It had to do something with his lungs and finally, his kidneys failed. Last four days he was in the hospital, in the ICU and this morning he passed away. Very sad.”

His most recent project was in the capacity of a music arranger for Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer ‘Thackeray’. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family during this difficult time.
