Indian Idol winner Sandeep Acharya passes away
Richa Shukla, TNN Dec 15, 2013, 04.22PM IST

Sandeep Acharya, who won the second season of Indian Idol in 2006, passed away at a Gurgaon hospital on Sunday.

 The 29-year-old singer, who hailed from Rajasthan, had been suffering from jaundice for a fortnight. However, he apparently neglected his health and had to be admitted to a local hospital in his hometown, Bikaner, in a critical condition.

When his health did not improve, he was taken to Gurgaon. He breathed his last on Sunday at 9am.

His younger brother, Akshay, said on Sunday, "Last night, doctors said his condition was under control and he was showing signs of recovery. We were all hoping we'd soon take him home. But nobody knew that he would leave us forever."

Acharya is survived by his wife and a one-month-old daughter. His last rites will be performed in Bikaner.

Sonu Nigam had tweeted on Sunday, "Sandeep Acharya died? Oh my God... his Wikipedia has been modified 15 minutes back... any1 knows how? I'm so so sad. Wht a btful soul."

Sandeep AcharyaIndian Idol Season 2 winner Sandeep Acharya passed away at the age of 29 at a Gurgaon hospital on Sunday. He was suffering from jaundice. "Yes, Sandeep passed away at Medanta Hospital today. We brought him here on Decemebr 10. Before that, he was admitted to a hospital in Bikaner," saidAkshay, Acharya's cousin.

Born and brought up at Bikaner in Rajasthan, Acharya was the winner of Indian Idol, a reality show on Sony TV, in 2006. 
Soon after winning the show, Acharya released his first album Mere Saath Saara Jahaan'. 
"He was supposed to release his new album O Sanam Tere Bina' mid-December," Akshay said. 
Choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan, who judged the reality show's second season with music composers Anu Malik and Sonu Nigam, tweeted: "It's too sad to hear of Sandeep Acharya... Such a gentle boy he was. Not his time to go."
Sonu also expressed shock. "Jaundice? Gosh...very sad. The boy was just 29... God give his parents some strength," he said on the social network site.
Anchor-actor Mini Mathur, who hosted Indian Idol 2, was taken aback. Her tweet was: "What a sad, premature goodbye to a talented, ambitious, happy boy."

Singer Shreya Ghoshal wished the news about his demise was not untrue.   "Just heard about... Sandeep Acharya...Shocked. Too young, and a wonderful guy," Shreya tweeted.
Married last year, Acharya is survived by wife and a child. After the Indian Idol success, Acharya had participated in TV show Jalwa Four 2 Ka 1.
Born on February 4, 1984, he was a science graduate and the youngest in the family of two sisters and a brother.  Acharya's last rites will be performed in his hometown Bikaner.

Local parliamentarian Arjun Ram Meghwal expressed condolence, saying the music world had lost a bright star.
Gopal Joshi, MLA of Bikaner-West, said, "I am shocked to know that Sandeep is no more. May his soul rest in peace."
Sony Entertainment Television expressed sadness over Acharya's death.  "A big loss for all of us... may God give strength to his family in this extremely difficult time," the channel posted on its Facebook page.

Its really very unfortunate to lose such a talented person at such tender age leaving behind his wife and one month old baby. This is certainly tragic and may his soul rest in peace.
