It was a bewitched moment for Maharaja College Students on Friday, when Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar famously known as `Appu` was present in their college to participate in the valedictory function of college's extra-curriculum activity.

When he sung a song of Kannada movie Mailari and Jockie, the entire premises of Maharaja College ground which was crowded with students gave applause and some were even seen putting steps for the song hollering Appu, Appu.

When the programme convenor BS Chandrashekar announced Puneeth Rajkumar has donated Rs 1 lakh for the college fund which will be used for the students activities, the students praised his humanity.

Addressing the students Puneeth Rajkumar said that `hailing from Chamarajanagar, I love Mysore very much and its not new for me. I have shot two of my films Hudugaru and Vamshi in the college premises.

He further added that in a year more than four months he stays in Mysore and wants to shoot a film in Maharaja College premises if the college permits him. Later he distributed prizes for the students and left the dais.

Speaking on the occasion, Mysore University retired Vice- Chancellor SN Hegde, called upon the students to face future courageously and to obtain identity in life.

He further advised the students to fulfill their desires and to develop leadership qualities, honesty, interest, determination along with the life skills and soft skills.
