Dr.Rajkumar….lives in memory

Muthuraj joins Gubbi company after studying till 4th standard. He does various roles in that famous company for years.Then joins kannada film industry at the age of 24. ಬೇಡರ ಕಣ್ಣಪ್ಪ was his first film in lead role. Then he was recognised as Rajkumar and he never looked back from then. He acted in 207 films for a long duration of over 4 decades. Out of 207 films, 143 general films,45 epic films, 15 historic films, 4 bond films. He can not be compared to anyone in the industry. He was most flexible actor, ready to do any kind of role. His father was also a theatre personality and wanted Rajkumar to enter film industry. His father was not alive when he entered industry but he gained popularity more than his father's expectation. He worked for upliftment and protection of the language- ಕನ್ನಡ. He played a major role in ಗೋಕಾಕ್ ಚಳುವಳಿ. He respected and loved everyone say for example Veerappan. He lived with him for 108 days and never told anything negative after coming from there. He was presented with Doctrate from Mysore university, Padmabhushana,padmavibhushana,Dadasaheb palke, ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ರತ್ನ and many awards. National and international awards for his acting.

I always liked his acting. I relly felt bad to know about his death. I liked his bond films the most. Operation diamond rocket and others… and other films like ಗಂಧದ ಗುಡಿ, ಸಂಪತ್ತಿಗೆ ಸವಾಲ್, ಭಾಗ್ಯ್ದ ಲಕ್ಶ್ಮಿ ಬಾರಮ್ಮ, ದಾರಿ ತಪ್ಪಿದ ಮಗ,ಆಕಸ್ಮಿಕ, ಮಯೂರ,ಹೊಸ ಬೆಳಕು, ಬಂಗಾರದ ಮನುಷ್ಯ, ಜೀವನ ಚೈತ್ರ and the list goes on.

Dr.ರಾಜ್ ಆತ್ಮಕ್ಕೆ ಶಾಂತಿ ಸಿಗಲಿ……
