Sandalwood witnessed one of the biggest events recently in the form of Ambi Sambrama, an event that was organised by the Kannada film industry to mark the 60th birthday of Ambareesh and his successful completion of 40 years in the industry. Now, Dr Rajkumar's family is keen to celebrate the golden jubilee celebration of Shivaraj Kumar, who turned 50 on July 12.
The Shivaraj Kumar fans association has announced that they are having a mega event on August 8. It is titled Shivaraj Kumar Suvarna Mahotsava and will be held at the Chowdiah Memorial Hall. The function is not only about glamour and a get-together of the film industry. The first family of the Kannada film industry is taking this as a stage to help the needy.
The surprising part of the story is that the Raj family is not looking out for sponsors since they want to give back something to the society. They are shelling out around Rs. 50 lakhs for the Shivaraj Kumar Suvarna Mahotsava for which Puneet Rajkumar has donated Rs. 10 lakhs.
Adding to that, Shivaraj Kumar will be donating a lakh each for five Kannada schools, Rs 25,000 each for struggling actors, and five lakhs will be donated to the drought-affected places of North Karnataka. The family is also helping some poor families by gifting 20 autorickshaws. Three ambulances will also be launched for people's service.
As for the entertainment aspect, some of the well-known names from the Kannada film industry will participate in the event and will entertain the audience with dances, skits, etc.
