After a concert on Tuesday, it is believed that famous Bollywood singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, often known as KK, suffered a heart attack and passed away at the age of 53. His death has prompted a torrent of condolences from admirers, including the current prime minister of India, Narendra Modi.
On Twitter, Modi remarked something to the effect that “His songs expressed a wide spectrum of emotions and struck a connection with people of all age groups.”
Through his music, he will live on in our memories forever. My condolences go out to his family as well as all of his admirers.
According to reports from the Times of India and several other local publications, Kunnath became ill when he was on stage at a concert in Kolkata. After the performance, reports state that he griped about how chilly he was and expressed a desire to go back to his hotel.
After falling at around 10:30 p.m. local time, he was taken from his hotel and brought to a hospital in south Kolkata, where, according to the newspaper, physicians proclaimed him dead upon arrival.
After receiving the news, the Indian minister Aroop Biswas raced to the hospital, where he reported that Kunnath’s wife and kid were on their way to Kolkata via aeroplane. He stated, “I am here to provide any and all available assistance to the family.”
The multilingual singer, who was born in Delhi in 1968, is known for his work recording songs in a variety of languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, and Bengali.
Kunnath made his debut in the feature film industry in the 1990s. He began his career by singing jingles. When he was working as a playback singer, his songs would be dubbed over movies, and the actors would lip sync along to them.
The songs “Tadap Tadap Ke,” “Dus Bahane,” “Tune Maari Entriyaan,” and “Dola Re Dola” from the film “Devdas” (2002), as well as “Khuda Jaane” from the romantic comedy “Bachna Ae Haseeno” (2008), were among his most successful works.
In addition, he has recorded two studio albums, Pal in 1999 and Humsafar in 2008, and has served as a judge and coach on many reality singing competitions.
On his Instagram profile, where a photo of Kunnath performing in front of a raucous crowd had been uploaded earlier in the day along with the message “Pulsating show tonight at Nazrul Mancha…,” thousands of admirers went to the platform to express their condolences after learning of his passing. Love you all.”
His wife, as well as a son and a daughter, will mourn his passing after his passing.
