Actor Shivarajkumar felicitated in London

Sandalwood actor Shivarajkumar paid tribute to 12th-Century philosopher and social reformer Basaveshwara in London on Saturday.

The film star was felicitated in London on completion of 30 years in the film industry. His wife Geeta Shivarajkumar and daughters, Nivedita and Nirupama, accompanied him.

On behalf of the Basaveshwara Foundation, the former Mayor of Lambeth, Neeraj Patil, welcomed Mr. Shivarajkumar and his family.

Shivanna, as he is fondly known, said he was extremely delighted to pay tribute to Kannada poet Basavanna along the bank of the Thames overlooking British Parliament.

A Basaveshwara statue was unveiled in the London Borough of Lambeth by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 14 last year.
