ಡಾ|ರಾಜ್ - ಗೌರವ ನಮನ

ನಾನೇ ರಾಜಕುಮಾರ,
ಕನ್ನಡ ತಾಯಿಯ ಪ್ರೇಮದ ಕುವರ
ಅನೀತಿ ಅಳಿಸಿ, ನ್ಯಾಯವ ಉಳಿಸಿ
ಶಾಂತಿಯನಿಳಿಸಲು ಬಂದ ಪ್ರೇಮ ಕಿಶೋರ...
ರಾಜ್ ಕುಮಾರ್...

Dr.Raj and Kannada Film industry were two names for the same thing. I just can't find any words to say in my blog today and moreover, there is nothing about Dr.Raj I can write that the Kannadigas do not know about. His filmography alone is almost 35% of the list of watchable Kannada movies!

There never was and never will be another personality like him in Kannada Film World. We will all probably thank him silently while watching any of his movies for leaving behind such a rich legacy of Kannada movies of every conceivable genre.

May his soul rest in peace.

UPDATED: I cant put it better than what this article says.

You are right my dear.why do't you disclose your name ? when 'Raj', was awarded, 'Baba saheb phalke award, (might be in 1995 !), karnatak sangha of mahim, mumbai, had arranged to 'falicitate him. the hall was jam packed. Raj was so jubiiant and thrilled on that evening, he danced and sang the famous song, which i love the most, "huttidre kannad nadnal huttabeku,mettidre ....beku...bandi...etc; etc; "
the entire audience gave him a "standing ovation" ! it was a great day. i love 'raj', for his superb acting, and good and clean personal life. you can witness only one 'Raj,'- Dr. Rajkumar !!

Yes! Dr. Raj's demise has definitely left a big void in the Kannada film industry! Nobody like "Annavaru" !
