|Raj Kumar No More|| |
| Kannada movie idol Raj Kumar has passed away. He was 77.|
He lived a life to marvel his illustrious career that covered five decades and more than two hundred movies. He had a great voice and has sung many film and devotional songs. In 1983 he took to streets to save the Kannada language, and in year 2000 he survived a kidnapping incident by the fearsome bandit Veerappan. A soft-spoken man, he made deliberate attempts to stay away from Indian politics.
He was a rare gentleman in the ugly industry of Indian movies.
