While fans have been throwing guesses as to what could be the reason behind Tamil film actors not attending Puneeth’s funeral, some users pointed out that it could be the Cauvery water dispute that made them keep distance. 

It may be recalled that the river water issue prompted Kannada actors to stage protests sometime back. Subsequently, as part of the protest, the actors said they wouldn’t allow any Kannada movie to release in Tamil Nadu. This could be the reason behind Tamil actors skipping the funeral. Some felt that they might face political problems from the State government if they visit Bengaluru. 

However, Siva Kartikeyan and Prabhu Deva are the two actors from Tamil industry who paid a visit to Puneeth’s house and consoled the family members. Stars Suriya, Vishal and Vijay who have great bonding with Puneeth Rajkumar haven’t appeared even for the final glimpse.  

From the Telugu film industry, actor Nandamuri Balakrishna, Jr NTR, Rana Daggubati, Chiranjeevi, Srikanth, Ali among several other prominent personalities visited Kanteerava stadium in Bengaluru to pay last respects to Puneeth on Sunday.
