Bhola Shreshtha was a very gifted musician, who composed lilting tunes as an assistant to Khemchand Prakash, some unforgettable songs are from the film Mahal. Who can forget the immortal 'aayega aanewala........' A brilliant music director, very few know that he was hugely accomplished tabla player, having learnt the finest principles of hindustani percussion from the stalwarts of benaras gharana.
He later worked with Kishore Kumar and composed more unforgettable melodies like Beqarar dil tu gaaye jaa and panthi hoon main us path ka.
His illustrous career was cut short by a cruel stroke of fate.........he died prematurely of a heart attack at the young age of 46.
