On Friday, after the completion of his gym session at home, Puneeth collapsed. He was taken to a family doctor, who performed an ECG and concluded there were signs of a heart attack.

Kichcha Sudeep reacts to Puneeth’s demise
Puneeth, apart from his prowess in various fields of cinema, was known for his humble nature and his unforgettable smile. He was also involved in plenty of activities aimed at the development of society. His passing away, that too at the age of just 46, is a shock for all the citizens of the state.
Friend and colleague Kichcha Sudeep, too, could not believe the loss of a person, whom he had known since childhood. On Saturday, the actor expressed his grief at losing his close friend with an emotional post on Twitter. Sudeep talked about when he had met Puneeth first and his qualities as a human being and as an actor. Sudeep also rightly said that it will take a long time to come to terms that the Power Star is no more.
Seeing Shivanna in that state was further hurting. He said a line to me. He said ” He (Puneeth) is 13 years younger to me.. I have carried him in these arms. Have seen enough till now. What more am I destined to see.” (Excerpt from Sudeep’s tweet)
