On the occasion of Puneeth Rajkumar’s 48th birthday, Kannada film director R Chandru has reportedly chosen to pay him a unique homage. According to reports, Chandru has chosen to have his upcoming movie Kabzaa released on March 17. The lead actors of Kabzaa are Upendra, Sudeepa, and Shriya Saran. In addition to Kabzaa, the Ganesh-starring film Baana Dariyalli is apparently also planned for release on the same day to honour Puneeth. Rukmini Vasanth and Reeshma Nanaiah will play the main characters in Preetham Gubbi’s film Baana Dariyalli.
Gandhada Gudi, Puneeth’s final film and the first to be released after his death, celebrated its 100th day in theatres since its release on October 28, 2022. Given that the movie was about preserving the environment and nature, its creators chose to rename a park in Bengaluru’s Jayanagar area Gandhada Gudi and also planted 101 saplings. On October 29, 2021, Puneeth Rajkumar suffered a heart attack and died as a result. He passed away aged 46.
