Karunada Chakravarthy Dr. Shivarajkumar is undoubtedly one of the most humble and down to earth actors who believes in simplicity. Of all the qualities despite being a star actor and son of Kannada thespian late Dr. Rajkumar, Shivanna time and again proves why he is such a great human being too.

In an age every donation or help is publicised and blown out of proportion, Shivanna believes in following in his legendary father's footsteps.
In a video which has emerged on the social media, it is now learnt that Shivanna had paid up to Rs 28 lakhs from his own pocket for the release of at least 26 inmates lodged in a Mysuru prison in the year 1988.
According to the video, one Mr Gopal says that Shivanna who had come for the shooting of 'Mruthyunjaya' film at Mysuru prison had paid Rs. 3 lakhs for his release after he shared about his story and his inability to even pay the court fine for his release.
He adds that Shivanna also paid for the release of at least 26 such inmates including him, which amounted to at least Rs. 28 lakh back then in 1988!!
Gopal was in jail in connection with a murder case at an age of 16. He was sentenced to ten years in jail and finally his release was set at Rs 3 lakhs as fine.
