A chapter on Puneeth Rajkumar to be included in Bangalore University Textbook

Recently, Kannada Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar, lovingly called Appu, was posthumously honoured with the ‘Karnataka Ratna’ at the Vidhan Soudha in Bangalore, Karnataka, on the occasion of the 67th Kannada Rajyotsava. 

Puneeth’s last film ‘Gandhada Gudi’ released in theatres on October 28 and received positive feedback from both critics and audiences alike. The release date commemorates the first death anniversary of the actor who passed away last year at 46 after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Considering the popularity and legacy of the late actor, fans have been demanding that Puneeth Rajkumar’s life should be documented in the form of a textbook being taught in the school curriculum.

Seems like Bangalore University has now finally decided to fulfil the demand as the university has declared that it will soon include a chapter on Puneeth Rajkumar in its syllabus.  Apparently the textbooks will contain a section from the just-published biography of Puneeth Rajkumar by Dr Sharanu Hullur

According to Dr Ramalingappa T Begur, member coordinator of the Bangalore University Kannada Board of Studies, the third semester Kannada language syllabus for BCom would feature a passage from Neene Rajakumara.

“The process started about four to five months back and all the needed approvals have been met. This is, however, presently included only in the BCom syllabus and the university has not yet thought of adding it to other courses as of yet,” stated the coordinator.

Puneeth’s wife Ashwini Puneeth Rajkumar released the fourth edition of the book Neene Rajakumara recently. The book was the highest-selling biography in Kannada language this year.
