Shrivastava was 51 and he had been undergoing cancer treatment at the hospital in Andheri for over 40 days.
    
"Mr Aadesh Shrivastava (51) expired at 12.30 am on September 5, 2015 in Kokilaben Hospital due to cancer," Dr Ram Narain of the hospital said.
    
Shrivastava is survived by his wife, Vijeta Pandit, a former Bollywood actress and sister of music-composer duo Jatin- Lalit, and their two sons -- Anivesh and Avitesh.
    
Last evening Shrivastava's brother-in-law and composer Lalit Pandit had said, "He has been undergoing chemotherapy but he is not responding to it. So, the doctors have stopped giving him chemotherapy. They have an alternate theory. The doctors are trying to do their best and Aadesh is fighting it bravely."
    
Shrivastava, who battled cancer five years ago, was diagnosed with the same disease again. He was said to be in a critical condition when he was admitted to the hospital.
