KK, one of the most talented Indian playback singers, died on this day 12 months ago. He died on May 31, 2022, due to a heart attack while he was performing in Kolkata. He sang thousands of songs in his career with songs such as “Yaaron Dosti,” “Tadap Tadap Ke,” “Pal,” and “Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai,” still making people nostalgic.

Remembering him on his first death anniversary, singer Shaan, who has sung around 25 songs with him, shares how he is dealing with the loss of his good friend.

The singer recalls that when he heard the news of KK passing away last year, he could not believe it.

“I thought it was a prank. But when I realised it was true, I was shattered. He was among the most disciplined people around. He wouldn’t smoke or drink and was perfect as far as striking a work-life balance was concerned. The fact that he would get a heart attack was something no one could believe. I can’t believe it’s been a year since he left us,” said Shaan.

Shaan further said that the duo always had a great time while recording songs together and also when they would perform together on stage.

The singer also said that KK was a private person. “He preferred meeting people one-on-one and having engaging chats. Now that he’s gone, there are so many memories and things he said that I recall. I also realise that a lot of stuff that he’d say casually had such deep meaning. But he’d say it so causally that it didn’t come across as something so meaningful back then,” said Shaan.
