<p>John Abraham has referred to Pankaj Udhas as his “mentor” before. John appeared in the song video early in his career, and the actor has always credited the singer as an influence. “I look at sir (Pankaj Udhas) as a mentor because when I came into this industry as a model, the first person who graciously accepted me in his music video was sir,” John said in an interview with IANS in 2012. “With Chupke Chupke he is the one man who is more than responsible for my success,” the actor had said.</p>
<p>Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with several other musicians in the profession, sent their condolences for the renowned vocalist. “We mourn the loss of Pankaj Udhas Ji,” the writer said. “His Ghazals spoke directly to the soul and his singing conveyed a range of emotions.” His songs lasted over centuries, making him a shining example of Indian music. I remember all the many things I’ve done with him throughout the years. There will always be a gap in the music industry after his departure. My sympathies to his family and supporters. Om Shanti.</p>
