The final rites of Chiranjeevi Sarja were performed at his brother Dhruva's farmhouse in the Kanakapura road, Bengaluru. This piece of land was purchased by the latter three years ago and this was one of the favourite places for relaxation of the deceased which is the reason why the family cremated him here instead of performing the final rites in their native of Jakkenahalli in Madhugiri taluk in Tumakuru district.
Chiranjeevi Sarja suffered a massive heart attack on Sunday noon, 7 June. He breathed his last at the Apollo Hospital in Jayanagar. His body was kept for the public homage at their residence in Basavangudi after medical examination. Thousands of his fans paid their homage to the actor and the whole of Sandalwood took the glimpse one-last of the deceased before his body was shifted to the farmhouse.
Shivaraj Kumar, Raghavendra Rajkumar, Puneeth Rajkumar, Upendra, Kiccha Sudeep, Darshan, Prajwal Devaraj, Sadhu Kokila, Chethan, Tara, Sudharani, Rockline Venkatesh, Munirathna, Gurukiran and plenty of celebrities were spotted at his Basavangudi residence to pay their tribute.
Politicians like HD Kumaraswamy and DK Shivakumar have also paid their tribute.
