Chiranjeevi Sarja no more: ‘Yuva Samrat’ laid to rest at Dhruva Sarja’s farmhouse
The Sinnga actor had suffered from brain stroke four days ago and episodes of seizures on Sunday before suffering a massive heart attack
The untimely demise of Kannada film star Chiranjeevi Sarja has left an irreplaceable loss in Sandalwood. He was just 39 and had carved a niche for himself.
The final rites of Chiranjeevi Sarja was performed at his brother Dhruva's farmhouse in Kanakapura Road, Bengaluru.
This piece of land was one of the favourite places of relaxation for the deceased which prompted the family to lay him to rest here instead of conducting the final rites in their native of Jakkanahalli in Madhugiri taluk, Tumakuru district.
Chiru, as he is fondly called, was known to be a very warm, friendly, and helpful person.
He breathed his last after suffering a massive heart attack on Sunday afternoon (June 7).
Thousands of his fans paid homage to the actor and the whole of Sandalwood took one-last glimpse of the deceased before his body was shifted to the farmhouse.
Shivrajkumar, Raghavendra Rajkumar, Puneeth Rajkumar, Upendra, Kiccha Sudeep, Darshan, Prajwal Devaraj, Sadhu Kokila, Chethan, Tara, Sudharani, Rockline Venkatesh, Munirathna, Gurukiran, Ragini Dwivedi, Vijay and a host of celebrities were spotted at his Basavanagudi residence to pay their tribute. Politicians like HD Kumaraswamy and DK Shivakumar also paid their tributes.
Chiranjeevi is survived by his wife, the multilingual actress Meghana Raj. The couple tied the knot in a Hindu and Christian ceremony just two years ago, in 2018.
For the family, the loss was debilitating and came at a time when the couple was expecting a new family member in months. Meghana is 6 months pregnant.
However, before the family could announce the good news to fans and the public, Chiranjeevi, unfortunately, died.
The couple has been together for over 10 years now. Chiranjeevi had been very supportive and was always proud of Meghana's achievements as he had shared after the actress won the Karnataka State Film Award. The industry has suffered an irreparable loss.
