CM SIDDARAMAIAH RELEASES BOOK ON DR RAJKUMAR\
C
hief Minister Siddaramaiah released the book ‘Dr Rajkumar Samagra Charitre’ on Dr Rajkumar that runs into two volumes and authored by senior journalist Doddahullur Rukkoji at a function in Bengaluru on Thursday.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said Rukkoji’s 15-year research on the greatest actor that Kannada cinema and theatre has seen had borne fruit. The chief minister said Dr Rajkumar’s hardwork, simplicity and humility is worth emulating.

Siddaramaiah said he had seen Rajkumar’s starrer Bangarada Manushya umpteen number of times. He said the actor was himself in the role and it was close to his real life persona as well. The chief minister said it was a coincidence that both Kuvempu and Rajkumar had been awarded the Karnataka Ratna Award together and that Dr Rajkumar’s book release was happening at Kuvempu Kalakshetra.

The chief minister said Rajkumar carried himself well in historical, mythological, devotional and even commercial roles with ease and dignity.

Siddaramaiah also announced that the government was thinking of opening a library in memory of the late actor.

Housing Minister Ambarish recalled the memories of Rajkumar and said the late actor had died of Yoga while he himself would die of Bhoga. He said there were no words to praise Rajkumar and added that he is happy another book on the actor has been published and released.

Jayanthi said she was the only actress who had addressed Rajkumar as Raj. Puneeth Rajkumar said he was proud to be known as Rajkumar’s son and that Rajkumar was his father. He said his family respected senior journalist Rukkoji’s work and urged people to buy the book.

Sowcar Janaki, Baraguru Ramachandrappa and Jayamala also spoke on the occasion.
