Veteran music composer Mohammed Zahur Khayyam has been admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of Sujay Hospital in Mumbai, reported timesnow.com. The music director, who has composed memorable tunes for films like Kabhie Kabhie and Umrao Jaan, is said to be in a critical condition due to infection in lungs, as was informed by BN Tiwari, president of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees Union.

As per the sources close to Khayyam's family, the 92-year-old composer encountered a deterioration in health last Sunday, which is when he was brought in. His condition has not shown much improvement since then. Currently, a team of doctors is taking care of him.

News agency ANI tweeted the news writing, "Veteran music composer, Mohammed Zahur 'Khayyam' Hashmi, is in the ICU at a Mumbai hospital in a critical condition. He was admitted here for a lung infection last week."

Khayyam observed his 92nd birth anniversary in February this year. On the occasion, Khayyam had donated Rs 5 lakh to the Prime Minister's Relief Fund towards relief efforts for the family members of those who died in the Pulwama terror attack.
