The 100th film is no mean a task. It requires grit, determination, hard work and sincerity. Shivarajakumar imbibed all these and that has made him to reach this achievement.


The media and industry darling Shivarajakumar turned very emotional and his mother sitting next to him had to control his emotions on Friday afternoon. Appaji should have been physically present to see this day said Shivanna wiped his tears for that Smt Parvathamma consoled appaji is somewhere here.

Coming back from emotions Shivanna thanked everyone who is responsible for his growth. He thanked the media for correcting him with his Kannada diction properly. A star is born; Shiv has come here for long stay….etc reports made me happy confidence to get going.

I was Porkhi and Poli in the childhood. To be born for this family is my Punya. For having born black I was teased but my Appaji umbrella where 30 plus of different age group grew mould me.

Appu is the inspirer and Appaji is the guide for any kind of role. At a young age Puneeth sung Bana Dhariyalli…it infused me to get in to films. I was offered a Malayalam film. But looking at my interest my father asked me to complete education and join an institute. Later the day came February 19, 1986 ‘Anand’ was launched. I got four state awards in that three for my mother’s films. The love and affection kept me kush all these days.

Yes I would take up Bhaktha Ambarisha and Bhaktha Kumbara. Some fans told me not to try out ‘Bhaktha Kumbara’. I would give promise that I will do justice to at least 30 percent to the performance of my father said the emotional king of Kannada cinema Shivarajakumar.

The poster design at the back where Smt Parvathamma, three sons and two daughters in laws sitting were sitting was made by Smt Geetha Shivarajakumar.

In the spicy food section extended to media persons the selection was also from Smt Geetha Shivarajakumar. Vegetarian, non vegetarian of course sweet stall, Beeda were part of the food items that has increased the calories of everyone without doubt.



While the dream project of Annavru and is wife Smt Parvathamma Rajakumar is ‘Bhaktha Ambarisha’ that has 10 songs and Kandha Padyas ready from Hamsalekha, Kedarnath locations and Mysore Palace permissions have been obtained and script is intact disclosed Smt Parvathamma Rajakumar on the cherished project in which Dr Raj was to play triple role. Unfortunate moment came when fugitive Veerappan kidnapped annavru and after 108 days of return from dense forest Rajanna picked up ‘Mandi Novu’ knee ailment. That had actually snatched his intention of doing ‘Bhaktha Ambarisha’.

It is from ‘Ramakantha’ role on stage playing in 200 shows Rajakumar avaru got offer in ‘Bedara Kannappa’ informed Smt Parvathamma. He wanted to launch with sons in that film either with Shivarajakumar or Puneeth Rajakumar. I would be very active on sets while shooting this film stated my husband but that could not take up before his demise added Smt Parvathamma.

Hat trick hero Shivarajakumar expressed that his dream is to perform in ‘Bhaktha Kumbara’ film of his father. I would work hard for that film and confident that I would live up to 30 percent of my father performance he said.


What quality my father had Shivanna possess the same with as on date nature. I see my father in Shivanna said the No.1 hero of Kannada cinema Power star Puneeth Rajakumar with his brothers Shivanna and Raganna, mother Smt Parvathamma Rajakumar and sister in laws Smt Geetha and Smt Mangala at the residence of Shivanna at Nagavara in Bangalore at the 100th film happy get together occasion.


With good name fan following my caring brother never takes the success to his mind. When he shouts he is soft like my father. This quality is what I want to imbibe. He is like my friend. I go to Shabarimalai. Shivanna does not utter lies. I don’t know whether I could carry out 100 mark in my career. He is gem. We brothers together talk about only cinema said Puneeth Rajakumar.



The pillar of Dr Rajakumar family Raghavendra Rajakumar knows immaculately when to intervene and how to put the things in proper perspective.

Saluting his brother achievement of 100 films Raganna remembered that ‘Appaji’ was always asking for three films of Shivarajakumar – Inspector Vikram, Modadaha Mareyalli and Om to carry in the vehicle when we are going out.

Raghavendra Rajakumar at one point of time said when we were children we were not considered like ‘Annavru’ Makkalu. We used to get same clothes of every other member in the family he pointed.

Pointing to Shivanna, Raganna said he always wanted to make things fast. I remember 150th film of my father. In 24 years 100 films of Shivanna travel is great said Raganna. I was in to medical and knowing the film achievement of my brother I also jumped to films. For one of the films at the end of the song my father also whistled in the end of the song remembered Raganna.

The three brothers working together should be a good one. Otherwise it should not take up was my father intention too. Let us hope for the better said Raganna.




Dr Rajakumar was always 32 in his waist and so are the three sons who always show their stomach that they have thinned down. Appannanthe Makkalu said Smt Parvathamma Rajakumar when the slim and trim fitness of Shivarajakumar was discussed in the residence.


Rajakumar avaru was 32 in chest and 68 kilograms he never increased disclosed Parvathamma Rajakumar and later Raghavendra Rajakumar said my father used his costumes for ‘Shabdavedi’ film that was fit for him.

Shivarajakumar said the happiness, love and affection from industry and media has kept him so comfortable in physique.
