Hema Malini'Every song was a masterpiece.'

Bollywood pays tribute to Ravindra Jain.

Late music composer Ravindra Jain made some beautiful melodies for the film industry, many of them popular even today.

Bollywood thanks him, in these tributes to him.

Hema Malini

He gave music for all my dance ballets. Such a great music director and a greater lyrics master. Will never find a legend like our dear Dada. He was waiting to write music for my forthcoming Ganga ballet.

I will miss him.

Anu Malik

Tremendously talented, tremendously gifted, tremendously melodic and above all, a great human being.

Every song was a masterpiece. Such hummable melodies! Sajna hain mujhe sajna ke liye is one of my favourite numbers. Also, the songs of Ram Teri Ganga Maili.

To make music for Mahabharata was a daunting task and he composed it admirably.

May his soul rest in peace and may God give his family the strength to bear this irreparable loss.

A great blow to the entire musical fraternity and music lovers.

Amit Trivedi

That's very sad news again after Aadesh Shrivastava.

What an amazing amazing composer he was. So many of his songs are my favourites.

Prasoon Joshi

I am really saddened by Ravindraji's demise. Unique musician and a poet at heart, Ravindraji's melodies will resonate with us forever.

Vishal Dadlani

I just read that he’s gone! I'm stunned!

He was always very kind to me, every time that I met him.

Such a great loss to music!

Shantanu Moitra

Jab deep jale aana, jab shyam dhale ana... he lives through his melodious songs. Will miss him.


Very, very sad to hear about Ravindra Jain, one the most talented composers and writer-lyricists.

His work in Ram Teri Ganga Maili and Heena will be remembered forever. My personal favourite songs are Ek Radha Ek Meera from Ram Teri Ganga Maili and Jaanewale oh jaanewale from Henna.
