Shivaraj, Raghavendra, Puneet and Parvathamma Rajkumar visited the
Samadhi (tomb) of late Kannada actor Dr. Rajkumar on the eve of his
5th death anniversary today. After the offering the prayers, Dr.
Raj family served food to thousands of fans, who had gathered at
the Kanteerava Studios in Bangalore.
Dr. Rajkumar did many charity works when he was alive. Bur he
never boasted about it because he had thought it was his
responsibility. Following his footsteps, several of Raj fan clubs
across the state have organised charity programmes like eye
donation and blood donation camps to mark his death anniversary. A
few groups even served food to poor people in many place in
However, it is very sad to remember about the installation
process of Dr. Rajkumar's statue. After the death of Dr. Raj, the
Karnataka government had promised to establish his memorial at
Kanteerava Studios. Meanwhile, BBMP had also promised to erect a
bronze statue of Rajanna in front of Town hall. But both these
works are still pending even after five years after his death. Will
these two promises be fulfilled in near future?
