Sandalwood star Shiva Rajkumar is known for striking a strong bond with his fans. So, when his young fourteen-year-old fan Ullekh met with an accident and lost his leg, he did not hesitate to pay him a visit. When it was brought to the starâ€™s notice that the youngster wanted to meet him, Shivanna decided to visit him in his home in Mysuru when he was in the city to attend the Suttur Jathra Mahotsav.
Spending time with the family for over an hour, Shivanna had some positive words to share with the young boy. He reportedly told Ullekh not to lose heart but stay brave. The star added that with the technological advancements, his mobility will improve further. It may be mentioned here that the entire family were Dr. Rajkumarâ€™s fans and the boyâ€™s father is a member of his fansâ€™ association.
The fourteen-year-old Ullekh was on his way from school when he tried boarding a KSTRC but fell off on the ground with his leg stuck in the back wheel. The family alleges that the driver and conductor were negligent as they did not want him to board the bus with a pass. The boyâ€™s father has filed a legal suit against the bus driver and conductor.
While the boy was hospitalized and a surgery was performed to amputate his legs, he expressed his desire to meet Shivanna. The actor wasnâ€™t able to meet him at the hospital due to his prior commitments but took time off his busy schedule to pay him a visit at his home to cheer him up.
On the work front, Shivanna is busy with a slew of films including The Villain and Kavacha. The Villain is slated to hit the silver screens on February 14th.
