In 2015, Aadesh died of cancer at the age of 51. Aadesh sang a number of hit songs especially for actor Amitabh Bachchan like Shava Shava, Chali Chali Phir Chali and Main Yahan Tu Wahan among others.
In an interview with ETimes, Avitesh shared, “I owe the start of this new journey of my career to Mansi. She is like my godmother. I see my father in her. When we first met we immediately started bonding, the spark was right there. He said music connected him to his father.
“I can’t wait to see how we will work together in my dad’s biopic. I have the utmost confidence and faith in Mansi’s vision for this special project,” he said.
Avitesh’s directorial debut, Sirf Ek Friday, was announced earlier this year. He will make his acting debut with the film. In an interview with Hindustan Times in 2020, Avitesh said he was inspired by his father because he had a “deep knowledge of music” and could “create magic with his music”.
“I have always been inspired by my father, who was a prolific composer and singer. I miss being in the studio because he was very supportive of my work. He always guided me and corrected my mistakes. I miss his energy and presence, his smiling face and his vibrant nature,” he said.
Avitesh added that his father “was a visionary and was the first Indian composer to work with many prolific international artists”.
Avitesh, who is also a singer, released a single titled Yaadein in 2020. The song was composed and written by Avitesh, and was shot in Manali, Himachal Pradesh.
