It seems so ominous. The news of KK’s death that too right after a live performance is terrible. He sang for films I was associated with, so his loss seems that much more personal.
Prayers & condolences to his family🙏 pic.twitter.com/HOOjgs4tY5

समय से बड़ा कोई बलवान नहीं,परमेश्वरसे बड़ा कोई विधान नहीं. संगीत जगत में रिक्तता कर गया, अचानक हमारे मित्र व सहकर्मी @iamKKSinger का चले जाना॥अत्यन्त पीड़ादायक है. निशब्द कर गया॥ परमेश्वर उनकी आत्मा को सद्गति दें.परिवार को ये विराट पीड़ा सहन शक्ति दें. प्रार्थना ॐ pic.twitter.com/A1B8wVoPLK
