The 92-year-old composer was taken to Sujay hospital on Sunday.

“He is right now in ICU, serious but stable. Doctors are attending to him. At this point, we don’t know when he will get discharged from the hospital but we are all praying for his speedy recovery,” Ghazal singer Talat Aziz, a close family friend of Khayyam, told PTI.

He has won three Filmfare Awards for Best Music in 1977 for Kabhi Kabhie and 1982 for Umrao Jaan, and a lifetime achievement award in 2010 . He was awarded the 2007 Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in Creative Music, by the Sangeet Natak Akademi, India’s National Academy of Music, Dance and Theatre.

He has been awarded the third-highest civilian honor, Padma Bhushan by the Government of India for 2011.

Khayyam has always preferred to work with the poets having strong background of poetry sidelining the regular film lyricists. That is the reason one finds poetry playing an equal role in Khayyam’s compositions as the music or the singer. Khayyam prefers to give full freedom to the poets to express their views thereby making the expression of the songs more poetic and more meaningful.

His notable works include films such as Trishul, Noorie and Shola Aur Shabnam. He is also a recipient of Sangeet Natak Akademi Award and Padma Bhushan.

We wish him for speedy recovery!
