After the show, he went back to his hotel, where he got sick. He was taken to Calcutta Medical Research Institute (CMRI) hospital in South Kolkata where doctors said that he had been “brought to death,”.
At first, Amit Kumar’s wife Reema Ganguly announces the news of the artist’s death on Facebook. Immediately, the shadow of grief descended on the fans. The city of melodies Kolkata witnessed the end of this eminent artist’s songs.
KK gave two concerts in the last two days. According to verified sources, he went to a five-star hotel in Kolkata after the live concert. At that time, fans requested him to take pictures. During the concert at Nazrul Mancha in Kolkata for Gurudas College’s fest, he reportedly felt sick and went back to the hotel, where he reportedly fell down the stairs and got worse. Then he was taken to the hospital as his illness worsened.
“Singer Anupam Roy called me and told me he heard something bad from the hospital,” West Bengal Sports Minister Arup Biswas said about KK’s death. After that, I contacted the hospital. They said that he had already died. Then I went to the hospital right away.”
In 1999, KK put out his first album, Pal. The critics liked his first album Pal. The singer-composer, whose real name was Krishnakumar Kunnath, focused more on Bollywood than on his own music at the time. He had hits like “Tadap Tadap” from “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” (1999), “Dus Bahane” from “Dus” (2005), and “Tune Maari Entriyaan” from “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” (1999). (Gunday, 2014).
This was the last song of his life’s last performance.“Yeh Pal”-true that, yeh pal will never be the same again… #KK will be missed forever. Had goosebumps while watching the video.
