The Indian film fraternity and Kannada film fans are yet to digest the news of Puneeth Rajkumar’s demise. The actor has passed away yesterday due to a massive cardiac arrest. The doctors declared his death after a couple of hours of his admission to the hospital. Puneeth’s death was a major shocker because he was fit and healthy yesterday morning and all of a sudden, he lost his life in the afternoon. Puneeth also made his last tweet on Twitter at around 07.30 AM yesterday.
“Best wishes for the entire team of #Bhajarangi2. @NimmaShivanna @NimmaAHarsha @JayannaFilms” – This was Puneeth’s last tweet. He conveyed best wishes to his elder brother Shiva Rajkumar’s film Bhajrangi 2, which had hit the screens the other day. Puneeth also attended the film’s event a few days back. It was a horrific day for Rajkumar’s family as they were celebrating Bhajrangi 2’s release in the morning and mourning the death of Puneeth in the evening.
The actor was reportedly working out at his gym while he suffered cardiac arrest. His condition was critical by the time he was taken to the hospital. Doctors tried their best but couldn’t save the life of Puneeth. He was just 46.
Puneeth’s body is kept at Kanteerava Stadium and a large number of fans are visiting it to pay their last respects. Puneeth’s last rites will be held tomorrow beside his father’s memorial.
