According to the doctor, the artist could have been saved if someone had administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) immediately after he fell unconscious. "He had a major blockage in the left main coronary artery and small blockages in various other arteries and sub-arteries.

Excessive excitement during the live show caused stoppage of blood flow leading to cardiac arrest that claimed his life," the medical practitioner told PTI on condition of anonymity.

One of the most versatile singers in the Indian film industry, KK has recorded songs in several languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telegu, Kannada, and Bengali, among others. IN 1999, KK released his first album, Pal. He then gave hits such as Tadap Tadap (Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, 1999), Dus Bahane, and Tune Maari Entriyaan and more. He is survived by his wife and two children.
