'He grew right before my eyes', says Rajinikanth as he pays emotional tribute to Puneeth Rajkumar

“After the treatment, I am recovering very well. When I was in the hospital, Puneeth Rajkumar died unexpectedly. I was only told about him two days later. Hearing that news caused me a lot of pain. He grew right before my eyes. He was very talented, cultured, compassionate and such a wonderful boy. He left us way too soon. And it is an irreplaceable loss to the Kannada film industry. I have no words to console the grieving family members. Let his soul rest in peace,” he said in a voice note posted on his Hoote account.

For the unversed, Rajinikanth shared a very close bond with Puneeth Rajkumar. When Puneeth’s debut movie Appu completed 100 days of its theatrical run, Rajinikanth also joined in the celebration and said he was looking forward to seeing all the great things that Puneeth was to accomplish in future.

“I watched the film with Appu (Puneeth). And I realised, he was still a lion cub but he was already roaring. And it got me excited to look forward to the things he was going to accomplish in future,” Rajinikanth had said.

Puneeth passed away due to a cardiac arrest on October 29, which shocked the entire country. On the same day, Rajinikanth also underwent a surgical procedure to restore blood supply to the brain at a private hospital in Chennai.

Meanwhile, people from the Tamil industry has been visiting Puneeth’s residence in Bengaluru to offer their condolences.
