Feels like music lost a note today. #Khayyam Saab, thank you for your music and for your kindness each time we met. Wish it could have been more often, but I’m glad I was able to thank you in person for the wonderful music you gave us. The songs from Kabhie Kabhi, Umrao Jaan and Noorie will never fade, and neither will you.
