Along with the picture she wrote,"As the world bids KK goodbye, some memories from the dancing as parts of the ZEDDs that will always remain."

It's worth noting that KK and Kabir went to Delhi college together. Many hit songs from Kabir's films have been recorded by the late vocalist, including 'Yeh Hausle' from 83, 'Laapata' from Ek Tha Tiger, and 'Tu Jo Mila' from Bajrangi Bhaijaan, among others.

Around 2 p.m., son Nakul performed KK's final rituals at the Versova Hindu crematorium, just a kilometre from his Park Plaza residence. The singer's remains was carried to the Crematory in an ambulance decorated with flowers and a photograph of KK.

Vishal Bhardwaj, the 53-year-old singer's filmmaker buddy, attended the burial with his wife Rekha, as did filmmaker Ashoke Pandit, Javed Akhtar, Shankar Mahadevan, Udit Narayan, Abhijeet Bhattarcharya, and others.

Shreya Ghoshal, Salim Merchant, Alka Yagnik, Rahul Vaidya, Javed Ali, Papon, Shantanu Moitra, and Sudesh Bhosale were among the musicians who paid tribute to the singer at his residence.
