Purab Kohli's fave MJ number

Nithya Ramani

Former veejay and Rock On!! star Purab Kohli was deeply upset when Michael Jackson passed away into the ages. The young actor always regarded the icon as a part of his family. He pays a tribute to the legend, and also sings his favourite MJ song, Wanna Be Startin' Something.

Over to Purab:

As far as I can remember, Michael Jackson has been the biggest pop icon. He made all of us do the moonwalk. His passing away, plus heavy rains added to the gloomy atmosphere. MJ's passing away happened a few years ago when he deteriorated and stopped performing. It was very sad to see his health. Still, I haven't seen any other artiste as big as Michael Jackson.

I enjoyed listening to Thriller, Bad and Dangerous. My all time favourite is Thriller. MJ always made movies out of his album. I have watched the Thriller movie many times. I have been such a great fan that I feel like I almost know him.

Beat It and The Way You Make Me Feel are some of my favourite songs. He's been a part of my growing years. His music always did something to me. He made beautiful melodies and tunes.

My wife and I have planned an evening get-together to pay a tribute to him.
