Not many people know that in the certificate issued by the Central Board of Film Certification (popularly known as Censor Board) the category of film is also mentioned. Since Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna no big commercial film in Kannada got the tag of 'historical' from the Censor Board.
But Shivanna's Santeyalli Ninta Kabeera has been given the certificate which says 'historical'. For a Shivarajkumar film this comes after Kumararama ten years ago. The film is based on the Bhakti saint Kabir, known in Karnataka as Kabeera. As reported by Chitraloka the film has got a U certificate and is 2 hours 20 minutes long.
The Karnataka government gives a subsidy of Rs 25 Lakh to historical films.
