Pandit Shivkumar Sharma, who gave music in many Bollywood films and became famous worldwide for his santoor playing, died on Tuesday, 10 May 2022. Pandit Shivakumar was battling kidney and heart ailments for a long time. His death is a big loss not only to Indian but to the music world of the whole world.

When the film was offered to Pandit Shivkumar Sharma
Not only do people know that Pandit Shivkumar Sharma had received offers not only for music but also for acting. Talking to DNA in an earlier interview, he had told that he had got the offer of the film ‘Saat Hindustani’ which was the debut film of megastar Amitabh Bachchan. Talking about this, he said, ‘Yes, it is true. I was in the studio where filmmaker Khwaja Ahmed Abbas was explaining scenes from the film to the museums. After that he called me to the side. I thought he wanted to tell me something different but he offered me to act in ‘Saat Hindustani’. He told me – it is fine even if you speak, your stature is also right.

However, it is a matter of wonder what Pandit Shivkumar Sharma did after this. Pandit Shivkumar Sharma’s first love was with music and hence he wanted to stay away from the glare of films. He further said, ‘I tied my hands and said – I want to be only in music.’ And it is also true that the first love of Pandit Shivkumar Sharma was only music. He also composed music for Bollywood films ‘Silsila’, ‘Lamhe’ and ‘Chandni’ with Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia. In Bollywood, their pair was famous as Shiv-Hari.
