The sudden death of singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known as KK, has left his colleagues and fans across the world in shock. The singer died on Tuesday night, just hours after a high-octane live performance at Nazrul Mancha in Kolkata. The musical icon collapsed after his performance and was taken to a hospital in the city, where he was declared dead. As condolence messages and tributes continue to pour in from all quarters, Amul has now dedicated its iconic topical to the singer. On Thursday, Amul shared a monochrome topical on social media along with the caption, “Yaaron…Yaad aayenge ye pal,” referring to one of KK's most iconic songs.
