“He is still with us. What I remember about him is he was most friendliest, warmest, humble, and very confident icon. His nature of giving back to society as a charity, formed a universal brotherhood. Because of his character and his spirit, he made all the south Industry people gather in the same place.”


“I have never ever seen the kind of love Puneeth received not only in the Kannada industry but in other respective industries. I guess he is blessed with the gift that he has so many people around him.”

“When I first visited his memorial. After 5 minutes I couldn’t control myself and cried quietly. Before he left us he taught us a lot of things. He taught us how one should live life, what you should leave behind, and what impact life you should have on others,” Suriya concluded.
