Veteran singer Anuradha Paudwal’s son, Aditya Paudwal died in Mumbai. He was 35. Singer-composer Shankar Mahadevan, who had collaborated with the music composer for several projects, announced the news of Aditya Paudwal’s death in a social media post on Saturday morning. Shankar Mahadevan told The Indian Express that Aditya Paudwal was in the ICU and he died of kidney failure. “Devastated hearing this news. Our dearest Aditya Paudwal is no more. What an amazing musician. What a lovely human being with a beautiful sense of humour. We have collaborated on so many projects. Just can’t come to terms with this. Prayers for his family. Love you Aditya … Will miss you,” Shankar Mahadevan wrote in his eulogy.
Shankar Mahadevan told The Indian Express: “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.”
