Shah Rukh Khan remembers Mehdi Hassan
Mumbai: As the music fraternity mourned the death of Ghazal maestro Mehdi Hassan, superstar Shah Rukh Khan went down memory lane to recall the times he listened to the legendary singer.
SRK took to twitter to share his memory of Hassan, who died today following multiple organ failure at the age of 84.
"Memories of my mom cooking in a grimy kitchen as it rained outside, while Mehdi Hassan floated out of a Beltek 2 in 1," Shah Rukh tweeted.
He also shared a few lines from a Hassan song: "Zindagi mein toh sabhi pyaar kiya karte hain... Main toh meri jaan, markrr bhi tumhein chahoonga... (Everybody loves during their lives, I will love you even when I am dead)."
Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar tweeted, "Mehdi Hassan moves on and lives forever. Leaving us with a legacy of music, magic, memories and so much more than words can describe."
"In my opinion, govt should build an institution on his name to continue his legacy through young/aspiring and established singers/musicians," he added.
