On the 39th death anniversary of legendary singer Mukesh, his grandson Neil Nitin Mukesh and melody queen Lata Mangeshkar on Thursday remembered the late singer.

Lata, who collaborated with Mukesh in many songs, tweeted: "Aaj mere Mukesh bhaiya ki 39 vi punyatithi hai. Hamare Detroit mein show ke waqt dil ka daura padne se unka swargwas hua tha. Bohot bhayankar samay tha. Hum sab dukh mein doob gaye the. Is waqt main Unki yaad ko pranam karti hun aur shraddhanjali arpan karti hun. "(Today is Mukesh bhaiya's 39th death anniversary. He passed away following a heart attack during our show in Detroit. That was a terrible time. We all were deeply saddened. Today I am remembering him and paying my respects to him)".
The 85-year-old also shared a link of the song "Jaane kahan gaye woh din" from the film "Mera Naam Joker".
