Rajkumar: Death of An Icon

The Kannada film industry lost its biggest ever star.

Its unfortunate to hear and read all about the rioting in Karnataka. Thankfully, no other Kannada star comes anywhere close, so rioting of this nature is unlikely to happen anytime soon in Karnataka!

I haven’t seen a whole lot of Rajkumar films. Of what little I have seen I must admit its a complete mystery to me as to why he is so popular. Actually, I think he is a better singer than an actor!

He was different from other south indian megastars in that he never dabbled in politics, though he stood up for issues that he thought were important to Kannadigas.
