Puneeth fulfils ailing girl's wish

Kannada actor Puneeth Rajkumar had a rare guest at his shooting premises at Kanteerava Studios on Monday. The ‘Power Star’ met Preethi (12), a victim of kidney failure, and spent time with her.

Preethi (12), the younger daughter of Kumar and Manjula, natives of Chennagiri in Davangere district, is a Class VI student of Rajarajeshwari school at Chennagiri. Her father runs a laundry and mother works as a domestic help.

Preethi undergoes dialysis twice a week and has been advised renal transplantation. However, the family is finding it difficult to get treatment for her owing to poverty.
Since her childhood, Preethi is a big fan of Puneeth Rajkumar. “I have seen all his films. It was my dream to meet Puneeth,” she told DH.

Preethi had wished Punith Rajkumar on his birthday on March 17. The actor arranged a car and invited Preethi and her parents to Bengaluru on learning about her wish. He spent an hour with Preethi and her parents and promised to offer financial assistance to the family.

“Puneeth Rajkumar has promised us to help our daughter. More than the help, he has fulfilled Preethi’s biggest dream and we are thankful to him,” Kumar said.
