Khayyam was known for his music in Bollywood classics like “Kabhie Kabhie”, “Trishul”, “Razia Sultan”, “Noorie” and “Umrao Jaan”. He also composed music for Meena Kumari’s album, “I Write, I Recite” featuring her singing her own poetic compositions.

Adorned with the National Award, the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award and a Padma Bhushan, Khayyam was admitted to the Sujoy Hospital in Juhu last week for a lung infection, said his spokesperson Pritam Sharma.

Having a keen ear for music, he started his musical career from Ludhiana at the age of 17.

He was honoured with the National Award, and a Filmfare Award, besides several other honours for his melodious music in “Umrao Jaan”, starring Rekha, Naseeruddin Shah and Farooque Sheikh.

Khayyam’s non-film songs are equally loved by his fans, especially “Paaon padun tore shyam”, “Brij mein laut chalo” and “Ghazab kiya tere vaade pe aitbaar kiya”.
