The untimely demise of Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar has left a huge void in Kannada cinema. His countless fans and fellow actors feel the absence of the star.
Santhosh Ananddram, director of Puneeth Rajkumar’s 2017 flick Raajakumara, has posted some throwback pictures of the actor as the team celebrates five years of their film’s release. Raajakumara made it to the theatres on 24 March 2017 and gained positive response from both critics and the audience. It was the highest-grossing Kannada film of that year after Yash headlined KGF Chapter 1. The venture was even dubbed in Hindi, titled as Daring Raajakumara.
