" I wrote for him for 32 years. Great people go out of sight eventually but stay here. They say the dead have left, where have they gone when they are right here. They are in everyhouse in everyone's hearts. Often when I write a program like Loose Talk. I end up writing Moin's name after mine in the next line. Then I have to cut it out," he said.

Fans on Twitter got emotional by seeing a clip of one great artist paying homage to another.

"This is gold during these dark times. What a national treasure! Thanku to Bilal Maqsood for sharing these intimate moments," one user wrote.

Miss him," another wrote.
