Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Hrithik Roshan, Sonam Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan and several other Bollywood and TV celebs mourned the death of pop musician Prince who passed away in Minnesota on Thursday and paid tribute to the star on social media.

Here's what they tweeted:

Prince Rogers Nelson became a global superstar in the 1980s, with albums such as "1999", "Purple Rain" and "Sign O' the Times".

He sold more than 100 million records during his career.

A singer, songwriter, arranger and multi-instrumentalist, Prince recorded more than 30 albums. His best known hits include "Let's Go Crazy" and "When Doves Cry".

In 2004, Prince was inducted into the Rock and Roll of Fame.

Last week, he was rushed to hospital just hours after performing on stage, but was soon released.

Earlier this month, Prince said he was not feeling well, and cancelled at least one concert in Atlanta, CNN reported citing the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Some days later, he took the stage in Atlanta to perform. The singer's spokesperson Yvette Noel-Schure had told CNN at the time: "He is fine and at home."

The legendary pop star was 57 years old when he was found unresponsive in the elevator of his studio in Minnesota. The cause of his death is still under investigation.
