Wajid Khan, of the Sajid-Wajid music composer duo, passed away 1 June 2020. To mark his one year death anniversary, wife Kamalrukh Khan and brother Sajid Khan posted heartfelt tributes on social media.

Kamalrukh shared a series of pictures featuring the duo and their children Arshi an Hrehaan. She penned a tribute which read, "It's one year already since Wajid's passing over and we as his family have chosen to celebrate his life, the good times and good memories rather than bury ourselves in sadness. We celebrate his infiniteness."

"I think of him when I see Arshi and Hrehaan - through their smiles, their eyes, their music, their love for me. I see him every day through them. The world changes every day and life goes on through the memories we shared. I truly believe death is not an end. It is a to-be- continued.... Onward and forward Wajid, to many exciting journeys into eternity," she wrote.

On her story, she reshared Instagram stories posted by their daughter Arshi remembering her father. "It's been a year already!! Time passes by so strangely. I think of you everyday. I miss you every time I see the number 7 or hear a song I know you'd like. I love you and I hope you've found peace. Always in my mind and heart."
