Kannada thespian Dr Rajakumar passed away into the ages this afternoon.

He was the king of Kannada cinema and had a huge fan following across the world. Unlike his contemporaries like MGR or NTR, Rajakumar stayed away from politics, though this did not take away from his immense popularity.

He gave us great movies like Bangaaradha Manushya, Kasturi Nivasa, Gandhadha Gudi and Jeevana Chaitra.

He would have turned 79 on April 24.

Join in bidding one of the most loved actors of Indian cinema goodbye.
