The whole world joins in mourning the death of pop icon Michael Jackson, who passed away at 0256 IST on Friday.
Back home, choreographer-turned-actor-turned-director Prabhu Deva is just as upset at the loss of such a legend.
"The news of Jackson's death is too shocking for me to say anything," he says. "I cannot recollect the good memories that I have of him now, as I am very sad. Whatever I am today, it is all because of him. I can only think of his music and dance. I am too shocked and sad to say anything more."
