Actor Puneeth Rajkumar’s mortal remains are kept in the Kanteerava Stadium. Many of his fans, friends, and industry colleagues are visiting the stadium to pay last respects to the actor. According to the reports, Telugu stars Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna, and Jr NTR will also go to Bengaluru to pay last respects to Puneeth.
Rajkumar’s family shares a good bonding with NTR’s family. Both NTR and Rajkumar were good friends. The same is the case with their sons Shiva Rajkumar and Balakrishna. Puneeth also had a great bonding with Balakrishna as well as Jr. NTR. Balakrishna attended quite a few events of Puneeth’s films and vice-versa. NTR crooned a song in the past for Puneeth’s film Power.
Puneeth was also a great admirer of Chiranjeevi. In many interviews, he had stated that his wish is to share screen space with Chiranjeevi. But unfortunately, the wish remains unfulfilled now. Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna, and NTR took social media to mourn the death of Puneeth yesterday.
Puneeth suffered a major cardiac arrest the other day while gymming at his home. He was soon rushed to a private hospital in Bengaluru. However, it was heard that the actor’s condition was critical when he was admitted to the hospital. He was declared dead at 02.30 PM on Friday. Puneeth’s last rites will be performed tomorrow with state honors. He will be cremated beside his father’s memorial.
