Last Tuesday, the 53-year-old singer was playing at Nazrul Mancha in Kolkata, where he complained of feeling uneasy. He was brought to the hotel, where he collapsed, and then rushed to Kolkata's CMRI Hospital. He was declared brought dead.
KK's relatives took his remains to Mumbai after a post mortem at a hospital in Kolkata. At Kolkata's Rabindra Sadan he was honoured with a gun salute, where West Bengal Cheif Minister Mamata Banerjee was also present to pay her last respects.
In the Indian music industry, KK was one of the most diverse singers. He has a long list of hit songs in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Bengali, and other languages. He is survived by his wife and children.
