Composer Shantanu Moitra penned a touching note to his friend: 'U took me to my first recording studio, u sang my first jingle, I had my first late night parantha with u. We had joys we had fun we had seasons in the sun. And u probably sang your last song with me. Will miss ur laughter, will miss u KK. Thank u for everything. Rest in peace.'

"It is a big loss. The entire industry is reeling under shock. He didn't have any health issue as such. For a few days, he had acidity problem," Abhijeet Bhattacharya told reporters outside KK's residence.
