Udit knew Aditya since his own struggle days. “He was a very happy child. And I got to know him better when Anuradha and I started singing many duet songs after Aashiqui. Anuradha used to bring him to recording studios, sometimes.”
Udit reveals that Aditya had a great ear for music. “He was a very good composer. I really like the way he carried himself. I hadn’t met him in very recent times, but seen him from a distance at a function; he looked okay. Anuradha and I were not in touch lately, so his kidney ailment is something that I really didn’t know about.”
Udit also said that Aditya had a very infectious smile. “In fact, Anuradha’s husband (Arun Paudwal) had called me home a few years back to sing in one of the bhajans that they were doing. I remember meeting Aditya there too. He used to welcome and respect me no end. I don’t think anybody will understand what Anuradha must be feeling now,” he concluded.
