The main reason, inspiration and driving force behind Dr. Rajkumar was his wife, Parvathamma. It was Parvathamma Rajkumar who helped Mutturaj become Rajkumar. Today, the couple is no more, but, their principles are still being valued and followed.
Along with multiple-organ failure, Parvathamma Rajkumar was also battling against breast cancer. Today, Wednesday, May 31, she passed away from heart attack. Two surprising facts worth mentioning here as reported on by Chitraloka. Firstly, Dr. Rajkumar passed away on April 12, 2006. It was on a Wednesday. Secondly, Dr. Raj's elder brother Varadappa, died on a Wednesday too!

Also known as 'Mysuru's daughter', Parvathamma was born on December 6, 1939 in Saligrama, Mysuru District. Just 5 days after being born, it was decided by the family that Parvathamma would be married to Mutturaj a.k.a Dr. Rajkumar.

Backbone Of Rajanna
Rajanna, as he was fondly called by his fan following, had his brother Varadappa as his backbone for him, throughout his life. Varadappa had a very important role to play in Rajanna's life. So much so that, it was Varadappa who would give green signal to scripts that Rajanna would next act in.
