Renowned Bollywood composer Khayyam, best known for his music in classic films such as Kabhi Kabhie and Umrao Jaan, passed away after prolonged illnesses at a hospital here on Monday. He was 92. The noted musician was admitted at the ICU at Sujay Hospital in suburban Juhu due to lung infection over 10 days ago.


Mohammed Zahur Hashmi, popularly known as Khayyam, was also a recipient of Sangeet Natak Akademi Award and Padma Bhushan. The funeral will be held on Tuesday. He received three Filmfare Awards for Best Music in 1977 for Kabhi Kabhie and 1982 for Umrao Jaan, and a lifetime achievement award in 2010.

Khayyam was born as Sa’aadat Hussain in undivided Punjab in Rahon, a town in Nawanshahr District which was then the Nawanshahr tehsil of Jalandhar District.

As a boy Khayyam ran away to Delhi to learn music but was forced to return to complete his education. Khayyam then went to Lahore to learn music from the famous Baba Chishti.

He was never interested in studies and was always fascinated by the music of Indian cinema. He was inclined to music since a very young age. He often escaped to the city to watch movies. Khayyam soon ran away to his uncle’s house in Delhi, in the hope of becoming an actor. Khayyam’s uncle enrolled him in a school, but when he saw his passion for films, he allowed him to learn music, which was actually a step forward in realizing his ambitions. He got his training in music under Pandit Amar Nath.Rest of his family , brothets & sisters living in Pakistan. He belongs to a very educated family.

Khayyam’s gave memorable music to the late-1970s and early-1980s was from Trishul, Thodi Si Bewafaai, Bazaar ,Dard, Noorie, Nakhuda, Sawaal, Bepannah,Khandaan. Again pairing with Sahir in Trishul he produced great songs like “Mohabbat bare kaam ki cheez hai” and “Janeman tum kamal karti ho” and the light “Gapuchi Gapuchi gam gam”. “Hazar rahen” from Thodi si Bewafai and “Aaja re o mere dilbar Aaja” from Noorie and “Dikahyi Diye” from Bazaar are some noticeable songs. Khayyam also created music for the Kamal Amrohi directed “Razia Sultan” and his “Aye dil-e-nadan” sung by Lata capturing the mood beautifully.One of popular song is Cho lene do.

Khayyam was still to deliver his best and the opportunity came in Muzaffar Ali’s Umrao Jaan in 1981. He made Asha Bhonsle sing songs which are indisputably her best. “In Aankhon ki masti ke”, “Ye Kya Jagah hai doston” and “Dil Cheez kya hai” are evergreen.


Expressing his grief, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote on Twitter, “India will remain grateful to Khayyam Sahab for giving us some of the most memorable compositions, which will be remembered forever.”
