Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Bengaluru on a campaign recently and Kannada power star Puneeth Rajkumar met him personally, for the first time. Puneeth Rajkumar and wife Ashwini met the PM and presented a book written on his father and legendary actor Rajkumar titled Dr. Rajkumar: The Person Behind The Personality. Puneeth took to Facebook and posted couple of picture with Narendra Modi and wrote – “Just had the glorious opportunity to meet our dynamic Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modiji along with my wife Ashwini. He gracefully accepted my book on Appaji (Dr. Rajkumar: The person behind the personality) and conveyed his good wishes to our family. I was extremely humbled by his enthusiasm and keen eye for detail and will cherish this meeting with a person whom the world looks up to.”

This is the first time that someone from the Rajkumar family has met the PM in all these many years and fans of the family are delighted to see this gesture from Puneeth. Although many fans looked very happy with this meeting of Puneeth Rajkumar and Narendra Modi, a certain section looked disappointed over it. Few felt that Rajkumar family never had any affiliations with politics and advised Puneeth to stay away from these kinds of meetings. However, majority of them opined that Puneeth was only meeting the Prime Minister of India and not any politician.
On the work front, Puneeth is currently gearing up to shoot for his upcoming film Natasaarvabhouma which is being directed by Pawan Wadeyar. The title and first look of the film was recently announced by the makers which will have music by Tamil composer D.Imman. The makers are yet to announce the rest of the cast including the female lead actor of Natasaarvabhouma which is expected to be made in the coming few days.
