On Being Called Rajkumar's Son

Puneeth Gives A Befitting Answer
Puneeth responded, "I grew up in a joint family. There used to always be children around me. In a year, I would visit my village for at least two months. I was the one who spent the most time with Appaji."
People Taunted Him
He further added, "After achieving stardom, when I used to commute in my own car, people taunted saying I am living off my father's money. However, I never let such things bother me."
He Worked His Way To Stardom
Puneeth said that he was never treated as a star kid in his family. He said, "We were always taught to work hard for what we want. Still, wherever I go, I am referred to as Dr Rajkumar's son. It makes me feel proud."
‘I Can Never Be Dr Rajkumar'
"I can never be Dr Rajkumar. But, I just want to try living up to him. We should fulfill our responsibilities. I have never suffered from (an) identity crisis," Puneeth said.
