BENGALURU: Actor Puneeth Rajkumar’s final rites will be performed on the evening of Saturday, October 30th, as previously announced. However, due to the growing audience and the delay in Puneeth’s daughter’s return from the United States, the authorities have decided to hold the funeral rites on Sunday, October 31st, after speaking with the family.
The return of Puneeth Rajkumar’s daughter has been delayed, according to Karnataka C.M. Basavaraj Bommai, and it would be unwise to execute the funeral rites after nightfall, especially in the relatively congested surroundings of Kanteerava studio.
According to the latest reports, Puneeth’s daughter arrived at the Delhi airport at 12:45 P.M. and was scheduled to board a jet to Bengaluru that had been particularly arranged for her. Puneeth’s older brother, Raghavendra Rajkumar, further said that the entire family has considered the fans’ wishes to see Puneeth Rajkumar one more time and has decided to perform the final rites on October 31st.
C.M. Bommai and Raghavendra Rajkumar both asked the audience to keep their cool. Puneeth Rajkumar’s death rites will be performed with full state honours adjacent to his father’s memorial.
