In memory of the late actor and philanthropist Puneeth Rajkumar, who passed away at 46 years old, a baby elephant was given the name Puneeth Rajkumar at a Karnataka elephant camp.
Puneeth Rajkumar’s passing last month shocked and devastated his loved ones. After nearly two weeks since Puneeth Rajkumar’s death, tributes continue to pour in.
Another gesture to mark the legacy of the Sandalwood star was witnessed at an elephant camp in Karnataka. A baby elephant has been named after the ‘Power Star.’ The gesture was a mark of remembrance of his visit to the camp days before his demise.
The history of Puneeth Rajkumar, who visited the Sakrebailu elephant camp in Shivamogga before his death, will be remembered at the location. A calf elephant named “Puneeth Rajkumar” will be a reminder of the actor and philanthropist’s last visit.
Deputy Conservator of Forest (Shivamogga wildlife division), Nagaraj said, “The elephant is named Puneeth Raj Kumar to pay tribute to him.”
