All about Puneeth’s last film

The film’s title Gandhada Gudi holds a special position in Kannada pop culture. It means the temple of sandalwoods and was also the title of late acting legend Dr. Rajkumar’s 1973 blockbuster movie which also lived on the importance of Karnataka’s jungles.

In Bengaluru, as part of the celebrations, admirers and fans of the Powerstar have erected 75 cutouts of the actor with huge garlands outside his memorial at the Kanteerava Studios.


The Puneeth Rajkumar-starrer is directed by National Award-winning filmmaker and wildlife photographer Amoghavarsha. Adventuring around Karnataka’s rich biodiversity, the film shows Amogh and Puneeth’s journey into the wildlife of Karnataka.
