On November 1st, the government of Karnataka will honor Puneeth Rajkumar with Karnataka Ratna Award. We hear that a 21-feet 3D statue of Puneeth will be placed for public viewing at that event. It is also heard that Superstar Rajinikanth and Young Tiger NTR Jr will attend this event as special guests.
This is the first time that Rajinikanth and NTR will be sharing the stage. It has been exactly a year since Puneeth Rajkumar passed away. The popular Kannada actor died on October 29, 2021, due to a sudden cardiac arrest. His fans and family members are organizing various events today in remembrance of Puneeth Rajkumar.
Meanwhile, a 21-feet fiberglass statue of Puneeth has been made in Tenali town of the Guntur district. This statue was made by Tenali-based artists Katuri Venkateshwara Rao, Ravichandra and Sree Harsha. It was reported that this statue was made with 3D technology.
Apparently, it took four months to make this statue. As of now, this statue is placed at Surya Shilpashaala in Tenali for public visits. Soon, it will be transferred to Bengaluru.
