The international music fraternity has faced a saddening loss with Kuly of music band RDB, passing away on Monday May 2012 in Houston, Texas, USA. The popular music group member sadly lost his battle with cancer at the young age of 35.
RDB had sung 'Singh Is Kinng' and 'Shera di Kaum' for Akshay Kumar's films. Shocked by the singer's death, Akshay tweeted on the social networking site, "Just heard about Kuly from RDB's sudden demise. Still reeling from the shock of the news. Such a talented guy, was behind some awesome chartbusters for many of my films. My heartfelt condolences to the RDB family. RIP Kuly."
Kuly was diagnosed with a brain tumour in April 2011 and underwent radio and chemotherapy. He was receiving treatment at a specialised clinic in Houston at the time of his death.
Kuly was an intrinsic part of RDB, a leading international music group, famed for their contribution to globalising Bhangra and Indian music. His legacy will remain with RDB and their super-hit tracks such as 'Aaja Mahi', 'Singh Is Kinng', 'Aloo Chaat' and 'Shera di Kaum'.
RDB and the family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time and thank their fans and well-wishers for their continued support and condolences.
