In spite of knowing that there’ll be attendance, those guys didn’t turn up.”Puneeth also pointed out: “Your ideas or what you do is actually without your notice building your identity.” The social media influencer was speaking to students on the subject Make Your Ideas Your Identity at the Rushes National Film Festival (RNFF).
