Many celebrities, including Jr NTR, Balakrishna, Chiranjeevi, Yash, Rana Daggubati, and others, attended the burial and were in tears as they mourned the loss of the film industry’s most beloved soul. The actor will be cremated on Sunday since his daughter arrived in Bengaluru at 6 p.m. tonight, and Hindu tradition prohibits him from being buried after sunset. Dhruti, his daughter, was inconsolably upset as she watched her father. The CM and Puneeth’s family also agreed that delaying the ceremony would offer admirers travelling from afar more time to show their respects.

On Sunday, October 31, the actor will be cremated with full state honours and draped in tri-color at Kanteerava Studio, where his parents were also interred.
