A fan asked director Santhosh Ananddram to make Puneeth's biopic, the Raajakumaara director gave a reply, leaving fans in hope.
A fan took to Twitter and wrote, "@SanthoshAnand15 sir please do a biopic on Appu sir..u have seen him closely and experienced his love n values. So please," said the fan, and to this Santhosh Ananddram would say: "I’ll try my level best to bring this idea on screen #appusirliveson". Indeed, if Puneeth Rajkumar's life were to be made into a film, one could reckon that Santhosh Ananddram would be one of the best suited for the job."
Santhosh and Puneeth Rajkumar are very close as they worked together for two blockbuster films. In 2017, the duo collaborated and gave blockbuster film Rajaakumaraa and four years later yet again with Yuvarathnaa.
