Heartbreaking Sach Keh Raha Hai to charismatic Aankhon Mein Teri: 15 timeless classics by King Of Melody KK


The Hindi music industry lost its gem on Tuesday. Renowned singer KK, born Krishnakumar Kunnath, breathed his last at the age of 53 shortly after performing live in Kolkata last night. After returning to his hotel room, he reportedly complained of uneasiness. Despite rushing him to a hospital, the doctors couldn't save him. 

KK had an important role to play in the Hindi music industry. He shot to fame for singing Chhod Aaye Hum Woh Galiyan for Maachis (1996). Later, he went on to impress his fans and critics with songs like Tadap Tadap (Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam), Dus Bahane (Dus), Aankhon Mein Teri (Om Shanti Om), Khuda Jane (Bachna Ae Haseeno) and many others. Proving to be the King of versatility, KK had songs in different languages like Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Bengali and Gujarati.
