Mysuru: Devaraj Urs, a diehard fan of ‘Power Star’ late Puneeth Rajkumar, has urged the state government to introduce a lesson on the actor‘s life in school textbooks in Kannada.
Urs is collecting signatures in Mudukuthore village in T Narasipura taluk and has also written a letter to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai in this connection.
In the letter addressed to the Chief Minister, he says, “Puneeth Rajkumar was a versatile actor. His simplicity, friendship, ideals and social service to the needy should be an inspiration to the children. Puneeth had also won a National Award at a young age in 1985. His story should be included in school textbooks.” (AM/KS)
