New Delhi, Jun 28: Michael Jackson fans in Mumbai and Siliguri paid tribute to the pop star whose musical genius was overshadowed by a bizarre lifestyle and sex scandals.
Scores of fans, including singers like Rageshwari, gathered at Mumbai's Juhu Enigma where choreographer Sandip Soparrkar and model Jesse Randhawa paid tribute to the pop legend by performing his music numbers.
"I did the first launch of Michael Jackson's music in the country, it provide me great support and whatever I am today it is because of that launch that happened. It was his support that I would say...so I am here to say that I love you (MJ) very much and I always miss your music," said Soparrkar.
"I was five-years old when I was introduced to Michael Jackson music, I used to dress like him whenever I performed, my musicians, my dancers were great fan of him...my father has translated many Michael Jackson's songs in Hindi, so for me it is a personal loss," added Rageshwari.
Fans in Siliguri placed floral wreaths in front of his photographs and observed silence in the memory of history's biggest pop star.
"I was shocked after hearing the news of his (Michael Jackson) death...I am a great fan of him and I grew up by watching his videos...I never thought that he would leave us so suddenly," said Sonia Roy.
