  3. praneshachar Says:

    LET THE MEMORIAL BE FITTING TRIBUTE TO THE ACTOR WHO HAS HIS OWN IMPRINTS ON OUR CINEMA

    PRANESH

  4. Prashanth M Says:

    Wonderful list…

    Saw this post in Churmuri & was wondering who would be the author… who else can come up with a post like this…

  5. rahul Says:

    Bellur – This is total bullsh!t. You have created this just for the sake of creating one.

  6. Arun Says:

    Hi Bellur,
    Superb thinking,…
    co-incidence @ its best.

  7. Mohan Says:

    Hi Ram

    Naan yaru anta gotayta?
    naan nimma old Raster geleya… kannadiga “moni”

  8. praneshachar Says:

    Rahul
    what is bullshit? do you find any thing created here dont comment just like that there is no shit in it all are just facts someone like bellur will compile for people. This has been published in Bangalore Mirror too
    PLease desist from making such comments.
    pranesh

  9. Huh? Says:

    Impeccable list!! But, in the hurry, I think your creative genius missed out that they both WERE born and (hold your breath) actually even died!!! What are the odds of that?!!

    Just to add to your list, I compiled my own for you.

    24. Dr. Vishnu had two lungs. Dr. Raj also had 2 lungs. Dr. Vishnu’s 2 lungs divided by 0 = Infinity. Dr. Raj’s 2/0 is ALSO Infinity.

    25. Dr.Raj and Dr.Vishnu both worked in the film industry. They both also spoke Kannada.

    26. Dr.Raj was 76 years old when he died. Dr.Vishnu was 59 years old when they died. They were both above 58 years when they died.

    27.There’s no information on Dr.Raj’s wife, Parvathamma on Wikipedia. There’s no information on Gayatri Nag, Ananth Nag’s wife on Wikipedia, either. Ananth Nag and Vishnuvardhan were dear friends. Hence, it is similar. Really.

    28. When Dr.Rajkumar died, they broke buildings and buses. When Dr. Vishnuvardhan died, they pelted ambulances. Both were shameful activities. But the plus side was that they both happened on a weekday, which was good for people who didn’t want to go to office.

    I hope this list enriches yours. As and when I come up with more, I will share them with you, sir. If you can share your research with me, it will make life easier, but if you can’t its ok, i’ll just make up some.

    You genius, you!

  13. suresh Says:

    ya..add some more no

    2)both of them stood on the ground

    …such nonsensical compilations must be thrown into the dustbin…maybe bangalore mirror is running out of stock for even decent articles

    • rk Says:
