“His exercise routines were a big hit among the youth, and he always had a positive impact on them to follow a healthy lifestyle,” said nutrition coach Ryan Fernando in an Instagram post after the demise of celebrated Kannada actor Puneeth Rajkumar at the age of 46 following a heart attack.
Talking about his association with the actor and social activist, Fernando expressed how committed he was to his routine. “When we worked together on his nutrition plan for one of his movie projects, he followed the program diligently and sincerely. His excitement was there to see when we achieved our goal,” said Fernando, who is the founder of Qua Nutrition- Signature Nutrition Clinic.
The star, as per reports, died following a massive heart attack post a two-hour workout in the gym.
“He was passionate about fitness and even told us that the newly acquired eating habits for the movie role would stay with him for life. He has touched millions of lives and has inspired them to lead a healthy lifestyle with exercise and nutrition,” mentioned Fernando reaffirming how the late actor was “very humble and down to earth”.
The mega star’s fitness videos were extremely popular on social media.
“He was one of the mega movie stars of this generation and a role model for all of us. Life is so unpredictable. Rest in peace,” mentioned Fernando.
