Puneeth Rajkumar's last wish
A couple of days ago, when Chiranjeevi starrer Bhola Shankar was announced, Puneet had called the director Meher Ramesh and congratulated him for the same. And after his tragic demise of the Yuvarathnaa actor, Ramesh revealed his last wish, "After Bhola Shankar was announced, Puneeth called me and congratulated. He then asked me to provide him at least a small role or even give the opposite to feature alongside Chiranjeevi in a dance bit in the film." Meher Ramesh and Puneeth worked together in Veera Kannadiga. It seems starring opposite Chiranjeevi in a film was one of his last wishes. Alas, it won't come true. His mortal remains are kept at Kanteerava Stadium. Several celebrities reached to offer condolences to the late actor.

"I only pen sequels if the script demands. I don’t do it just for the sake of fitting into it or raking in moolah. RRR is a single story and everything will take place in one film.
