BENGALURU: Kannadigas in the Bay Area of Silicon Valley, USA have organised a memorial service for Sandalwood star Puneeth Rajkumar, who passed away last week.
The prayer meeting will be held at Sewa Community Centre in Milpitas, Bay Area, California on Sunday and over 2,000 people are expected to participate. Kannada organisations in the US, including Bengaluru Voice (a weekend radio programme), Kasturi Media in association with Kannada Koota of Northen California (KKNC), TriValley Kannada Sangha (TVKS) and San Joaquin Kannada Sangha (SJKS), have come together to remember him.
The team organising Puneeth’s Shraddanjali includes Govardhan Gowda, Suresh Babu and Raviraj Pangal from Bengaluru Voice & Kasturi Media. Gowda said, “Puneeth Rajkumar was a strong supporter of NRI Kannadigas in all our endeavours. He was in regular touch with us and I do not exaggerate when I say we have lost a family member.”
The Bay Area is home to around 7,000 Kannadiga families. Milpitas has hosted many programmes related to Karnataka and Kannadigas. The organisers on Friday informed Shivarajkumar, Puneeth’s elder brother, about the event.
