There have been so many celebrities whose deaths have shocked everyone to the core, leaving their fans in a state of disbelief. The unfortunate demise of these artists was very personal to all their fans and followers.

But the saddest part is that these artists probably saw their death coming even before anyone else. Call it a mere co-incidence or their experience and situations they would often find themselves in. These artists often wrote their hearts out but who knew it was a bitter truth which was soon going to turn into reality. 

Unfortunately, all these artists left untimely for their heavenly abode in their young age. Let’s have a look at the list!


Punjab’s first modern poet, Shiv Kumar Batalvi’s contribution in the field of poetry is unmatchable. His writings translated true love, passion and agony that these emotions bring.

No doubt, many of his writings are adapted into the beautiful songs as well, including, ‘Ikk Kudi’, ‘Ki Puchhde O Haal Fakiran Da’ and others.

Fondly remembered as ‘Birha Da Sultan’, Shiv amidst his poetries also wrote a poetry which had a premonition about his death titled, ‘Asan Tan Joban Rutte Murna’ and as he had written, he left for his heavenly abode on May 6, 1973 at a young age of 36.

Known for his unique voice and uchi hekh, Bindrakhia’s co-incidentally last track was titled, ‘Main Kal Tak Nahin Rehna’. The verse of the song goes like, “Main tirkae ghare da pani, main kal tak nahin rehna” (I am like water in a seeping pot that will not survive till tomorrow).
