An Instagram user commented, “Really heartbreaking for all of us.” Another netizen wrote, “Out of all his songs he chose this one…Like somehow gods give you the hint.. It’s crazy.” One more netizen commented, “Huge loss to Indian music industry lately. Lata di, sidhu moosewala and KK. It hurts deeply. Rest in heaven legends. Your art will live on.”
KK’s last song was Yeh Hausle in Ranveer Singh starrer 83. Reportedly, he has recorded songs for films like Lost, Sherdil, and Tiger 3. Apart from Hindi songs, KK had also sung tracks in other languages like Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, and others. His singles Pal and Yaaron are his most popular tracks, and though it was released in 1999, people still enjoy them and remember the songs.
This is the fourth singer who has passed away this year. Before him, Lata Mangeshkar, Bappi Lahiri, and Sidhu Moose Wala left us. 2022 is surely not a fine year for the music industry. We pray that KK’s soul rests in peace.
