The Rajkumar family, renowned in the Kannada film industry, has recently faced a heart-wrenching incident. Suraj Kumar, belonging to this illustrious family, endured a life-altering bike accident on the Mysuru-Gundluper highway close to Bengaluru. The 24-year-old actor, known off-screen as Dhruwan, tragically had his leg amputated below the knee due to the severity of his injuries. Immediate medical attention at a nearby private hospital was crucial in saving his life post amputation.
Reports confirm Suraj’s close familial ties with stalwarts Puneeth Rajkumar and Shiva Rajkumar. Shivarajkumar, deeply affected by the incident, promptly reached out to his relative, visiting him in the hospital. While Suraj’s condition was initially perilous, with grave injuries, there have been improvements in his health. Before this incident, Suraj’s launch as a main actor in 2019 faced delays for undisclosed reasons. His prior engagements include assistant direction for some of Darshan’s movies and leading roles in “Ratham” and a yet-to-be-named film starring opposite Priya Prakash Varrier. The Kannada film community and fans are reeling from this tragic news, collectively hoping for Suraj’s speedy recuperation.
