Power Star Puneet Rajkumar is finally on Facebook. 

The Kannada film star joined Facebook on November 5, and with just five days having passed, it seems his fans don’t really known the page exists.

Perhaps, the 39-year-old star is not yet comfortable with the medium. He does not engage with fans. So far he has only uploaded a few photos of himself in various places. In five days over 12,000 fans have liked the page.

These also include two photos of himself with his father and Kannada film legend Rajkumar. Puneet started his career as a child actor in the 1980s and in 2002, he starred in Appu as an adult. The film went on to become such a big hit that it inspired re-makes in Tamil as Dum, in Telugu as Idiot and in Bengali as Priya Amar Priya. 

His fans still call him Appu. One fan said on Puneet’s page: “nanu Appu sir abhimani”, meaning “I am Appu sir’s admirer”.
