It has been almost a month since the demise of Kannada Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar. The 46-year-old actor died of a massive cardiac arrest on October 29. The entire Indian film industry was shell-shocked by his sudden death. Fans are yet to digest the fact. Meanwhile, there is a huge demand from fans to make a biopic on Puneeth. Kannada director Santosh Ananddram responded to this request.
Recently, a fan asked Santosh on Twitter to make a biopic on Puneeth. “@SanthoshAnand15 sir, please do a biopic on Appu sir..u have seen him closely and experienced his love n values. So please,” tweeted the fan.
Responding to him, Santosh wrote, “I’ll try my level best to bring this idea on screen. #appusirliveson.”
Both Santosh and Puneeth had worked together for two blockbuster films. In 2017, they came up with Rajaakumaraa. It was a smashing hit at the box office. In 2021, they came up with Yuvaratnaa, which also received well by the Kannada audiences. Reportedly, they were planning to work together once again. Unfortunately, that wouldn’t happen now. But Santosh can make a biopic and fulfil the wish of Puneeth’s fans. It has to be seen if he makes an announcement about this biopic in the coming days.
On the flip side, Puneeth’s last film James will hit the screens next year. The makers are planning to release it on the actor’s birth anniversary.
