 Veteran lyricist Anwar Sagar, best remembered for his hit track "Wada Raha Sanam" from Akshay Kumar-starrer "Khiladi", passed away on Wednesday.

The lyricist was brought dead to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in the afternoon. He must be close to 70 years, a hospital source told PTI.

According to Syed Ahmad, singer and a board member of the Indian Performing Right Society (IPRS), Anwar was "suffering from heart related ailments and finally died of cardiac arrest". 

He is survived by his wife and two children, Ahmad said.

Anwar wrote songs for the '80s and '90s films such as David Dhawan's "Yaraana", Jackie Shroff's "Sapne Saajan Ke", "Khiladi", "Main Khiladi Tu Anari", Ajay Devgn-starrer "Vijaypath", among others.

His most popular creation is the romantic track - "Wada Raha Sanam" picturised on Akshay and Ayesha Jhulka.

"Veteran lyricist  and IPRS member Anwar Sagar has passed away. Known for writing songs like 'Vaadaa Raha Sanam', he also penned lyrics for iconic movies like Vijaypath and Yaraana. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in this difficult time. May his soul #RIP," IPRS said in a tweet. Ahmad said he was friends with Anwar and used to often meet him and talk about the ongoing crisis in the music industry. 

"His death is definitely an irreparable loss to the film industry," Ahmad added.
