It's like he came to say goodbye: Gulzar on working with KK in Sherdil song

Mumbai/IBNS: Veteran writer-lyricist Gulzar turned emotional once again remembering late singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known as KK, who worked with him in a song from upcoming Hindi film Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga.

KK's last song from Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga, Dhoop Paani Bahne De, was released Monday.

Remembering the late singing icon, who passed away after a concert in Kolkata last week, Gulzar said in a statement, "Srijit has done me a favour in ‘Sherdil'. Not only did I get to write for such a beautiful film, I got to meet KK after ages. KK had first sung a song of mine in Maachis, ‘Chhor Aye Hum Woh Galiya..."

"When he came to sing the song for ‘Sherdil', it filled my heart with joy but It's a shame that this had to go down as one of his last songs. It's like he came to say goodbye," he added.

Dhoop Paani Bahne De, the song, is written by Shantanu Moitra,

Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga, which is directed by national award winning filmmaker Srijit Mukherji, is slated for Jun 24 release.
