Following a concert on Tuesday, renowned Bollywood singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, known professionally as KK, died of a suspected heart attack.
The 53-year-old famous singer sang at a concert in Nazrul Mancha, Kolkata, just a few hours before his death on May 31.
According to the Times of India and other local media, Kunnath fell ill while singing at a concert in Kolkata. She reportedly complained of feeling very cold after the show and wanted to go back to his hotel.
A video leaked hours after singer KK’s sudden death after a concert in Kolkata, showing him looking unwell as he was led away from the venue. He returned to his hotel, where his condition was said to have worsened. He had chest problems and died on the way to hospital, according to reports.
The singer’s death has yet to be determined, but a post-mortem report will be released soon. According to local sources, a case of unnatural death has been filed with the police.
Born in Delhi in 1968, KK began his career performing advertising jingles and went on to perform in many Indian languages, including Tamil, Telugu and Kannada, before getting his big break in film music.
He leaves a wife, a son and a daughter.
As soon as news of his death broke, tributes to the late artist flooded social media, including one from India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“We will always remember him through his songs. Condolences to his family and fans.” Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi wrote on his Twitter account.
Throughout his nearly three-decade career, KK sang over 500 songs in Hindi and over 200 songs in other Indian languages. She had also won many awards, including two Screen Awards for Best Male Playback Singer.
