Everyone continues to be stunned and grieved by KK's unexpected demise. After performing at a live concert in Nazrul Mancha, he died on May 31 in Kolkata. He got unwell after the concert and collapsed when he arrived at the hotel.
His mortal remains were transported to Mumbai yesterday, and he will be cremated there today. Many celebrities have been arriving at his home since the morning to pay their respects, and now the singer's body is cremated while the last rites were performed by his son Nakul.
Shreya Ghoshal, Javed Akhtar, Shankar Mahadevan, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Alka Yagnik, Javred Ali, Sunidhi Chauhan and other arrived at his home. Filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj and his singer wife Rekha were also spotted at the singer's residence.
Latest reports are saying that the artiste could have been saved if CPR had been administered quickly, according to a doctor who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
During Tuesday's concert, the singer was roaming around and dancing with the audience, which prompted extreme excitement, resulting in a blockage of blood flow and cardiac arrest. As a result, KK passed out and suffered a heart attack.
The doctor said to PTI, "The vocalist had 80 per cent blockage in the left main coronary artery and small blockages in various other arteries and sub-arteries. None of the blockades were 100 per cent."
At Kolkata's Rabindra Sadan, KK's body was honoured with a gun salute. Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, was also present at Sadan to offer her respects. KK was one of the most diverse singers in the music industry. He has performed superhit songs in a variety of languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Bengali.
