Music composer, director and singer Wajid Khan died in the wee hours of Monday in a city hospital at the age of 42. He was on a ventilator for the last four days after his situation started getting worse.

Merchant says kidney infection was the beginning and then he got critical. Sajid-Wajid began their career with Salman's 1998 film Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya, for which they composed the song Teri Jawani, and scored several of the star's later films, including Partner and the Dabangg series.

They had recently composed the Salman Khan's single, Bhai Bhai, as well. Sajid Khan, however, told PTI that his brother passed away after suffering from cardiac arrest.

"Expressing grief over the demise of the late music composer Wajid Khan, Sanjay Dutt took to Twitter and wrote", Extremely saddened to hear about the demise of Wajid Khan. "I lost my brother and a very, very dear friend Wajid".

The duo is best known for their work with Salman Khan in his films like "Wanted", "Dabangg" and "Ek Tha Tiger". I will forever remember you as ever-smiling, singing songs on the phone. "We will miss u Wajid bhai thank u for the music". Priyanka Chopra wrote, "The one thing I will always remember is Wajid bhai's laugh".

Taking to Instagram, Neha Kakkar wrote, "Gone too soon RIP #WajidKhan Sir".
