A source close to Khan’s family told IANS that the 42-year-old musician was suffering due to kidney infection and his condition worsened when he was afflicted by the coronavirus.
“Wajid bhai had been suffering kidney related problems from sometime. He even underwent kidney transplant a while ago. Unfortunately, his health got worsened and then he caught COVID-19,” the source added.
Shocked to hear about the Wajid’s demise, several celebrities took to social media to express their grief.

As reported in an early IANS report, Salman Khan, who used collaborate with Sajid-Wajid frequently, tweeted to say that he “will always love, respect, remember and miss you”.

Aalim even took to social media and wrote: “Brother Wajid bhai left today. We studied together in college right from F.Y.J.C. We struggled together to become something in our life. We have always been so close. Our parents were very close friends. I just can’t believe he is gone.
“A guy with such a pure heart. How much time we have spent together. It’s not a good day for me, I lost such a beautiful friend. Jaan tha hum sab doston ki Wajid.

Rapper Badshah said: “I am deeply saddened by this news, it is very hard to believe that he is not with us anymore. Wajid Sir was such a great man, extremely talented and a humble soul. We all have lost someone special and this is a very big loss. May his soul rest in peace.”
Singer Papon shared that Wajid Khan wanted to collaborate with him.
“Wajid Bhai always expressed that he wanted to work with me and I was more than happy to be collaborating with such a talented and humble man. Unfortunately I didn’t get the opportunity to work with him, though we had plans. I had heard he was unwell, this news is extremely sad. This is definitely a very big loss to the industry, he was a very good soul. May his soul rest in peace,” Papon recalled.

ED grills Rhea’s brother; both to be quizzed again on Monday
Continuing its probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has grilled Showik Chakraborty, brother of actress Rhea Chakraborty, for the second time in connection with their financial transactions.
Showik, who went to the ED office around noon on Saturday, was seen leaving after more than 18 hours around 7 am on Sunday.
According to officials, he has reportedly given “evasive or unconvincing replies” to the ED team quizzing him and is likely to be summoned again on Monday.
Besides, Rhea Chakraborty will also be summoned by the ED for another round of questioning on Monday. She had first been questioned for over eight hours on Friday.
Among other things, the ED is investigating the money-laundering angle in the Sushant case after the late actor’s father Krishna Kishore Singh lodged a complaint with Patna Police to question certain financial matters pertaining to his son.
On June 14, Sushant’s body was found hanging at his Bandra flat in what was termed a suicide, sparking a huge uproar in Bollywood and political circles.
Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt hospitalised, tweets to say he is ‘doing well’
Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt was hospitalised on Saturday evening after he complained of breathlessness and uneasiness in the chest.
The medical team attending to the actor at Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital has informed that Dutt has tested Covid negative after a rapid antigen test, although he continues to be kept under observation in the intensive care unit (ICU). His condition is said to be stable.
“Just wanted to assure everyone that I’m doing well. I’m currently under medical observation & my COVID-19 report is negative. With the help & care of the doctors, nurses & staff at Lilavati hospital, I should be home in a day or two. Thank you for your well wishes & blessings,” the actor tweeted with an emoji of folded hands, on his official Twitter account, @duttsanjay.
Dutt, who turned 61 on July 29, suffered from low oxygen saturation levels according to a report in indianexpress.com. On arrival at the hospital, he underwent a rapid antigen Covid-19 test and the result was negative. However, the hospital authorities have also collected a swab of the actor for an RT-PCR test.
The actor returns to the screen in Mahesh Bhatt’s “Sadak 2”. The sequel to the 1991 hit, “Sadak”, reunites Dutt with Pooja Bhatt, and also casts Alia Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur in pivotal roles. The film is slated to release digitally on August 28.
Will abide by what SC rules on Sushant probe, says Maharashtra government
Though the Maharashtra government opposes a CBI probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, it will abide by the Supreme Court’s decision in the matter, state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said on Saturday.
In a significant statement, Deshmukh told media persons that the state will follow the ruling of the apex court vis-a-vis the probe into the case, but opposes a CBI investigation on grounds of jurisdiction.
“The Mumbai Police are probing the case very thoroughly and professionally. However, we shall go by what the Supreme Court says at the hearing on August 11,” he said.
In the past week, Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh briefed Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, while investigating team members met officials of the Law and Judiciary Department.
The latest stand is different from the Maharashtra government’s earlier stated position that there was no need to hand over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as the Mumbai Police are doing a competent job and probing it from all possible angles.
The CBI has registered an FIR based on the case lodged by Patna police on the complaint of Sushant’s father, K.K. Singh.
Last week, the Mumbai Police had cold-shouldered the Patna police team which was camping in Mumbai for several days for probing the Sushant case.
On Friday, irate over his 6-day long quarantine ordered by the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as he reached Mumbai to help the state police team, Patna’s SP, City, Vinay Tiwari hit out at the Maharashtra government after he was released.
“I was not quarantined, but the Sushant probe was quarantined,” he said, before flying back to Bihar as per Covid-19 protocols as directed by the BMC.
