Actor Mini Mathur, on Thursday, remembered singer KK with a throwback picture. The aforementioned picture features late singer KK along with Mini Mathur’s filmmaker husband Kabir Khan and friend Rajan Kapoor. Kabir Khan and KK attended college together at Delhi University’s Kirori Mal College (Mini Mathur revealed in a previous Instagram post). Sharing the cherished memory on her Instagram story, Mini Mathur wrote: “As the world bids KK goodbye, some memories from the dancing as parts of the ZEDDs that will always remain.”
This is what Mini Mathur posted:
Kabir Khan and Mini Mathur paid their final tribute to KK on Thursday afternoon. KK had sung tracks for many songs from Kabir Khan’s films, which included Yeh Hausle from 83, Hai Junoon from New York, Banjar (Revisited) from Kabul Express, Laapata from Ek Tha Tiger and Tu Jo Mila from Bajrangi Bhaijaan, to name a few.
On Wednesday, Mini Mathur wrote a eulogy for the singer in an extensive Instagram post, which read: “KK was always a star. From the moment he stepped on to stage in Delhi University and swept every single competition as the Kirori Mal College participant to singing every block buster song that represents the coming of age of an entire generation. I knew him since then – the quintessential “good guy” – charming yet shy. Totally committed to his family. Fit, never prone to the wastage of youth. Watching him reach the hearts of millions used to give us all dilli college waalas strange pride. And being Kabir Khan’s college buddy … It was an unsaid pact that he had to sing at least one song in each of his films. Every time we bumped into him.. he would say milte hain yaar…bas iss concert ke baad. The irony. I cannot believe life has been so unfair to one of the nicest people in the hood. Tagging my memories of those wonderful days.”
