Shahrukh Khan tweeted, "Memories of my mom cooking in a grimy kitchen as it rained outside, while Mehdi Hassan floated out of a Beltek 2 in 1."
He also shared few lines from his famous ghazal, "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 and actor Ali Zafar also expressed his grief on twitter, "Mehdi Hassan moves on and lives forever. Leaving us with a legacy of music, magic, memories and so much more than words can describe."
He added, "In my opinion, govt should build an institution on his name to continue his legacy through young/aspiring and established singers/musicians."
Mehdi Hassan, died at the Agha Khan Hospital on Wednesday. The 84-year-old Ghazal legend was suffering from multiple organ failure.
