Not just his songs but even as a person, #KK will always be close to my heart.
An exchange with KK that I'll never forget.

A completely mismanaged event, where the legendary singer continuously asked for the ACs to be put on and dim the laser lights behind him. This is how you manage an event #Bengal ?? #TMC should be held answerable for this loss #KK #KKPassesAway https://t.co/0j0xQHtAPQ

During my childhood days I used to listen his music thinking that Emraan hasmi is singing. I have the playlist of his songs with me. One of the best singer. 💔💔#KK #KKPassesAway pic.twitter.com/BJDGnFY0CV

The 90s kid inside me is completely dead now. I know I am. #KK was part of everyone's farewell, first love and first heartbreak. Most of us lost a big part of our life today. Very hard to believe. Cheers to you, beautiful soul. Rest easy now. #KKPassesAway #KrishnakumarKunnath pic.twitter.com/1yNYDxVtq1
