Chandan superstar Puneet Rajkumar died of a heart attack last year. The 46-year-old actor’s sudden demise shocked his fans. Puneet’s last film was released in theaters in March. Chetan Kumar’s James is the last film of Puneet’s career. The last outing of Power Star in Kannada cinema got huge love from the audience. To the delight of Pune fans, James will premiere on Kannada TV channel Star Suvarna on July 17. The TV premiere of Action Flick is expected to attract a large audience.
James has already been released in Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam on the OTT platform SonyLiv.
James has an attractive location and Puneet Rajkumar is shown doing the high-octane action sequence brilliantly. It is worth noting that James has received a great response from both the audience and the critics. The film has been hailed by critics as a fitting tribute to the late actor. Puneet’s elder brother, Shivraj Kumar and Raghavendra Rajkumar have small roles in the film and they have touched the story emotionally. The short roles of Shivraj Kumar and Raghavendra Rajkumar have increased the discussion of the film on social media.
Over the last few months, citizens at all levels have been demanding respect for the memory of the great hero of Kannada cinema. Last month, the layout in the Chamarajapet constituency in Karnataka was named after Puneet Rajkumar. The MLA from Chamrajpet constituency dedicated the layout to Puneet Rajkumar and appreciated the simplicity and selflessness of the late actor.
In June, a beautiful statue of the prince was unveiled in Pune by his brother Raghavendra at Hospet in Karnataka. A 7.4-foot statue immortalizing Puneet was unveiled at a grand unveiling ceremony. Earlier this year, the Greater Bengaluru Municipal Corporation decided to rename the 12 km stretch of outer ring road in Bengaluru as Puneet Rajkumar Road.
