Aadesh's brother-in-law and composer Lalit Pandit said: "We are not seeking help from the industry. We don't need money, we need prayers from people. We don't need funds and we have never asked for funds from anybody,"
Aadesh's brother-in-law and composer Lalit Pandit told PTI: "He has been undergoing chemotherapy but he is not responding to it. So, the doctors have stopped giving him chemotherapy. They have an alternate theory. The doctors are trying to do their best and Aadesh is fighting it bravely"
