Speaking to Star of Mysore, Yogananda said, “This year, as the Administration is paying tribute to the late actor, the Karnataka Exhibition Authority approached me for an art work and I thought it is a great opportunity for me to express gratitude to Puneeth Rajkumar. He used to encourage young artists by providing them a platform to showcase their talent. For the first time when I had created Dr. Rajkumar’s portrait using audio tapes, Puneeth had shared it in his social media handle and today when I create his (Dr. Puneeth) portrait, I really miss him.”
