KK performed at a concert organised by Gurudas College at Nazrul Mancha in south Kolkata for almost an hour on May 31. He was “feeling heavy” after reaching his hotel, and soon collapsed, officials said. He was taken to a nearby private hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead.
KK, regarded as one of the best singers in India, had not taken a formal training in music but emerged as one of the most popular singers of the late 90s and 2000s after his debut with Gulzar-directed 1996 film Maachis. He later recorded songs in several languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Bengali. Some of his most popular songs include Yaaron, Tu Hi Meri Shab Hai, Tadap Tadap Ke Is Dil Se, Awarapan Banjarapan, Aankhon Mein Teri Ajab Si, Khuda Jaane, Zindagi Do Pal Ki and Tu Jo Mila, among others.
