Filmmaker Srijit Mukerji has announced that he will unveil late singer KK’s song Dhoop Paani Bahne De on June 6. The song happens to be one of the last songs that KK has recorded. The track also marked his collaboration with Gulzar.

Srijit took to Instagram and announced that since the best way to pay tribute to an artist is through their work, he is going to release the song within a day. Written by Gulzar, the track is composed by Shantanu Moitra.

Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga stars Pankaj Tripathi, Neeraj Kabi and Sayani Gupta in the lead roles. Pankaj plays the lead role of Gangaram in the movie. The film revolves around his life and how he wants to end his life of poverty. Thus, Gangaram adapts the infamous tiger policy and waits for his death so his family can have some money to survive. That is where he meets Neeraj Kabi’s Jim. What transpires between them makes up for the film, which is slated to release in theatres on June 24.

The much-loved singer Krishnakumar Kunnath aka KK passed away in Kolkata on May 31. He complained of chest pain and breathlessness after which he was rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately, the legend was pronounced dead and the reason revealed was that he went into cardiac arrest.

KK’s last song at the concert reportedly was Pal, which is still one of the most loved tracks among the 90s kids. His other memorable songs include Yaaron, Tadap Tadap, Tu Hi Mera Shab Hai, Khuda Jaane and Piya Aaye Na.

The singer has crooned songs in various languages including Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. Dhoop Paani Bahne De, like the name suggests, will be his Hindi song.
