Indian celebrities mourn demise of Prince

Indian celebrities like Priyanka Chopra, Hrithik Roshan and Manish Malhotra have paid tribute to ‘the King’ Prince, the legendary American musician, who died in Minnesota on Thursday.

A singer, songwriter, arranger and multi-instrumentalist, Prince recorded more than 30 albums. His best known hits include “Let’s go crazy” and “When doves cry”.

While some reminisced the hit songs that the singer had delivered, some expressed their sense of losing another great musician after the late ‘King of Pop’ Michael Jackson (MJ) died in June 2009.

Here is what the Indian celebrities had to say on Twitter:
