The duo went on to work on a number of the actor's films, including Tumko Na Bhool Payenge, Veer and Partner.

"Wajid Vil always love, respect, remember n miss u as a person n ur talent, Love u n may your lovely soul rest in peace". Priyanka Chopra wrote, "The one thing I will always remember is Wajid bhai's laugh".

Wajid Khan, of the famous Sajid-Wajid music composer duo, was also suffering from kidney ailments and had undergone a kidney transplant a few months ago.

Hours after Bollywood music composer Wajid Khan succumbed to complications arising from COVID-19 infection, his mother Razina Khan has also tested positive for the deadly coronavirus. "He was suffering from COVID 19 [sic]". In his words, "He had multiple issues", Merchant added. While many suggest that he had issues in his kidney, reports also suggest that he had contracted coronavirus. He was on the ventilator for the last four days, after his situation started getting worse. "Kidney infection was the beginning and then he got critical", Mr Merchant told PTI.

Wajid's death came as shock for everyone and left Bollywood celebrities grieving.

Confirming the news, singer Sonu Nigam posted on his official social media handle: "My brother Wajid left us".

Rahat took to Twitter and shared a picture with the late Bollywood composer with a caption, "I have just lost my brother today".

Sajid-Wajid most recently composed a song for Ali, to mark the occasion of Eid Al Fitr, which was released last week.

Wajid also voiced Chinta Ta Chita Chita from the film Rowdy Rathore for Akshay Kumar, among others.

Wajid Khan had tweeted, "Iss ankh micholi ke khel mein hamesha ek dhoondhta hi rehta hai aur woh nahin paas aata jo chupp jaata hai mere bhai @irrfank Allah aapko iss suffer imaan ki taazgi aapki rooh ko sukoon mile Aameen".

They recently composed Salman's "Bhai Bhai" single.
