MEHDI HASSAN

He was suffering from health problems, said doctors.

The Pakistani ghazal singer, who was equally popular in India and other parts of the world for his singing, was born on July 18, 1927 in a village called Luna in Rajasthan, India into a family of traditional musicians.

He is famously known as the 'King of Ghazals'.

He was honoured with 'Tamgha-e-Imtiaz', 'Pride of Performance' and 'Hilal-e-Imtiaz' by the Government of Pakistan, and Gorkha Dakshina Bahu by the Government of Nepal.

Hassan mesmerized his listeners with his soul-touching ghazals in his glorious career that lasted several years.

We at Glamsham.com express our heartfelt condolences to Hassan family.
