On October 29th, the South Indian cine world was shaken by the news of a famous sandalwood actor Puneeth Rajkumar. The 46-year-old actor died unexpectedly of a heart attack. He was reportedly working out in a gym when he complained of chest pain.

Puneeth was buried close to his father, the legendary actor Dr. Rajkumar, and mother Parvathamma at the Kanteerava Studios in Bangalore. Celebrity friends and fans who were unable to attend his funeral are currently visiting his memorial to pay their tribute.

Following actor Sivakarthikeyan and Ram Charan, Suriya visited the memorial and Puneeth's house. He was spotted crying as he paid tribute to Puneeth. Suriya and Puneeth's families have been close friends for years.

Speaking to the media, Suriya tearfully revealed that they first met when their mothers were pregnant.

"I remember what my mother said...I was four months old in my mother's womb while he was seven months old in his mother's womb. That's when we knew each other for the first time. None of us in our family could accept what happened to him," he added.
