      He shared, "I am recovering well post the surgery. I was in hospital when Puneeth Rajkumar breathed his last. They told me about it a couple of days later. I was heartbroken after hearing the news of his death. The child grew in front of me. He was a very talented and lovable child. He left us at a very young age and at the height of his successful acting career. His demise is a great loss for the Kannada film industry. I don't have words to console his family. Let Puneeth rest in peace."
