He was in ICU after a surgery went bad
The Deedar De composer informed his Instagram followers that his father was in the hospital's intensive care unit (ICU) for the last three-four days, getting treated for a gall bladder surgery that went awry. But the elderly passed away late into the night. "I couldn't have asked for a better Father, or a better person to be my teacher for life," he further wrote.
'Can't even go hold my mother in most difficult time'
"I can't even go hold my mother in her most difficult time," the composer lamented, mentioning how the situation was "really not fair."
