Madhavan tweeted that he had “lost his voice.” KK had sung his popular heartbreak number “Sach keh raha hai” from his Bollywood debut Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein. Emraan Hashmi, who had lip-synced many of his songs from the Anurag Basu film Gangster, wrote on Twitter, “A voice and talent like no other.. They don’t make them like him anymore. Working on the songs he sang was always that much more special. You will always be in our hearts KK and live eternally through your songs. RIP Legend KK #ripkk.”
KK was popular for crooning songs like “O Meri Jaan,” “Khuda Jaane,” “Pal,” “Yaaron Dosti,” “Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai,” and “Tadap Tadap” among many others.
