Bengaluru: The trailer of Puneeth Rajkumar’s last film Gandhada Gudi (A journey of a true hero), was released on Sunday October 9. Directed by National Award winner and Wildlife Photographer J. Amoghavarsha, Gandhada Gudi, explores the flora and fauna of the State along with the late actor.
The film attempts to highlight the biodiversity, which ranges from plain lands to Coastal regions, and from destructed forests to deep forests in the Western Ghats, interspersed with songs and breath-taking visuals of nature.
“Namaste @narendramodi ಅವರೇ, Today is an emotional day for us as we are releasing the trailer of #GandhadaGudi, a project close to Appu’s heart. Appu always cherished the interactions with you & would have loved to share with you in person,” wrote the late actor’s wife Ashwini Puneeth Rajkumar on her Twitter account.
Appu lives in the hearts of millions around the world. He was brilliance personified, full of energy and blessed with unparalleled talent. #GandhadaGudi is a tribute to Mother Nature, Karnataka’s natural beauty and environmental conservation. My best wishes for this endeavour. https://t.co/VTimdGmDAM
