Kollywood actor Vishal on Sunday has promised to take over the educational expenses of 1800 students who were being sponsored by Puneeth Rajkumar from next year.

In a pre-release event of Kollywood actors Vishal and Arya starrer ‘Enemy’ held in Hyderabad on Sunday, the team paid tributes to late actor Puneeth Rajkumar. Vishal during his speech promised that from next year, he would take care of the 1800 students who were getting free education from Puneeth.

Kannada Superstar Puneeth Rajkumar passed away on Friday afternoon was regularly sponsoring numerous children’s education. Apart from being a wonderful actor, Puneeth had also taken part in several social activities across the state. While he continued the initiatives started by his father Dr. Rajkumar, ‘Appu’ also set up 45 Free Schools, 26 Orphanages, 19 Goshale and 16 Old Age Homes. He also was responsible for the free education of 1800 students.

Vishal speaking at the release, said, “Puneeth Rajkumar is not just a good actor, but a good friend as well. I haven’t seen such a down-to-earth superstar like him. He was doing lots of social activities. I promise to take care of 1800 students who are getting free education from Puneeth Rajkumar from next year.”

Enemy, directed by Anand Shankar is starring Vishal, Arya, Mamta Mohandas, Mirnalini Ravi and Karunakaran in main roles. It is produced by S Vinod Kumar under the banner Mini Studios.

‘Enemy’ records the second time that Vishal and Arya will be working together in a film. Previously, both the actors had shared screen space in 2011 action drama Avan Ivan by director Bala. While they played friends in the previous film, in Enemy, they are reportedly involved in a cat-and-mouse game with each other.
