Late entertainer Puneeth Rajkumar‘s desire to change over his ancestors’ home in Gajanur into a historical center is working out. The entertainer had visited the house four months back and had invested quality time with the villagers, communicating his craving to make a gallery. This was the house where his dad, Dr. Rajkumar had resided, and it was in this town that he had started his acting profession.
As heavy rains pounded the village in August, the dilapidated house suffered heavy damage. To get work underway for the historical center, a villager called Gopal assigned workers to restore the house to its original shape. The work presently is going in full speed ahead, is relied upon to be finished in several months. Shivarajkumar and Raghvendra Rajkumar are relied upon to visit the town soon.
Dr. Rajkumar’s nephew, Gopal, says, It was very painful to see the house in a pathetic condition. It has golden memories that remain etched in the memory of Kannadigas. We are using traditional pillars and rooftop tiles so that it retains their charm. After the work is completed, rare photographs of Dr. Rajkumar, Puneeth Rajkumar, and their family members will be hung on the walls, which will also help to preserve the house for future generations.”
Another villager, Ramesh, adds, “This will be an added attraction for tourists visiting Chamarajanagar and Tamil Nadu.”
Vinay Rajkumar, the grandson of Dr. Rajkumar and child of Raghavendra Rajkumar, had shot here for his upcoming film, Graamaaayana, which is set in a village.
