Shivarajkumar, the Kannada star, is celebrating his 60th birthday today. This is the first birthday he will celebrate without his younger brother, the late Puneeth Rajkumar. While that void cannot be filled, we experienced Shivarajkumar’s special moments with his brother Puneeth and they will leave you with tears in your eyes.

Puneeth Rajkumar was like a kid to Shivarajkumar as they have an age difference of 13 years. Despite the age difference, they shared a close bond. He once told in an interview, “I have fond memories of holding him in my arms as a baby. I took him for long walks and we played together. Neighbors and friends in Chennai, where we spent our childhood , joked about it and said a baby was carrying a baby.”

Shivarajkumar also revealed that Puneeth was a great cook. The late actor often called his older brother for lunch and dinner, feeding him his favorite dishes of mutton and chicken curry.

Also, Shivarajkumar played cupid by helping his brother Puneeth take his relationship to the next level by marrying his longtime girlfriend Ashwini. “I first met Ashwini at the Cauvery Theater during the screening of my film ‘AK 47’ in 1999. When I told my mother about it, she asked me to tell our father. I did that. Appaji took it sportingly. It was wonderful to see how they believed in me and in Puneeth and Ashwini. Puneeth was introduced as a hero a year after he married Ashwini.”

Here are some happy moments shared by the Rajkumar brothers. Look:
