Puneeth Rajkumar’s sudden death has shocked the Kannada film industry. The 46-year-old actor was too young to die. Importantly, he was not suffering from any disease or ailment and was fit and fine. Just like all the actors and stars of today, he also engaged in regular workouts and fitness regime, following diet and a chalked-out routine.
Even then death took him away from the fans. What is more shocking is that he died when he was working out at the gym. His death brought back memories of Sidharth Shukla’s sudden death who had started feeling uneasy after jogging in his parking lot. While all the Southern celebrities shared condolence messages grieving the death of Puneeth Rajkumar, one such tweet by Satya fame director Ram Gopal Verma revealed the harsh truth of life and death.
The tragic case of @PuneethRajkumar exposes a hard truth that there is no co relation between healthy habits, regular workouts etc and sudden death ..Why death does not care about who it is killing and why it is killing, only GOD can answer if he’s at all there— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) October 30, 2021
In his tweet dedicated to the Sandalwood actor, RGV said that Puneeth’s death has caused enormous loss to Karnataka’s film industry. RGV further wrote that the death of Puneeth has exposed the hard truth that there is no relation between good habits, regular workouts, and sudden death because death never cares about who or why it is killing.
The death of @PuneethRajkumar still feels like a bad dream ..Can’t even imagine what his near and dear ones are going through— Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) October 30, 2021
Nawazuddin Siddiqui created a stir after he declared that he is leaving the OTT platform for good. What the Kick actor said on his decision is exactly the thoughts of the audience who are more into watching meaningful and relevant content rather than just bulk viewing mediocre series and movies. But his decision has left many from the entertainment industry shocked as it was his series Sacred Games that turned him into an OTT star.
According to Nawaz, the way content on the web series is getting diluted lately has displeased him a lot and more often makers are using the OTT platform as the dumping ground for what is not working. Nawaz feels that either there are shows that are redundant or sequels to a series that has already lost its charm.
The famous actor believes that OTT has lost its freshness and it is more a dhanda now with Bollywood producers compromising on quality for quantity to churn out more revenue.
