A few days ago, the superstar of Kannada films had passed away due to cardiac arrest. Now the state government has decided that he will be awarded the highest civilian honor of the state. So far only 9 people have received this honor. Puneet Rajkumar will be the 10th person to be awarded this honor. Before Puneet Rajkumar in Kannada film industry, his father Doctor Rajkumar has also been awarded Karnataka Ratna. CM Basavaraj Bommai made the announcement at a tribute gathering ‘Puneet Naman’ organized by Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce in Bengaluru on Tuesday. On this occasion, former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that Puneet was a very rare person and he had won the hearts of the people with his merits.
