Veteran playback singer Mohammed Aziz passed away today, aged 64, at Mumbai's Nanavati Hospital.

His most memorable Hindi songs include My Name Is lakhan, Aap Ke Aa Jane Se, Lal Dupatta Malmal Ka, and Dil Le Gayi Teri Bindiya.

He had provided vocals for multiple generations of Bollywood stars, from Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan to Mithun Chakraborty and Govinda. Mohammed was known for his close association with Laxmikant-Pyarelal as well as Kalyanji-Anandji, RD Burman, Naushad, OP Nayyar, and Bappi Lahiri.
