We are in inevitable situation. The pumping of more ideas to our hard work and support has made us to defer the exhibition of Chitraloka by Chitraloka. We are not holding this first of its kind exhibition on 26 th of June the 6 th birthday of Chitraloka. It is going to be held on 16 th of July for good reasons.
We at Chitraloka are ready with 99 percent of the work with 2800 photographs of 10x12 sizes ready for pasting at the stands. Chitraloka photographs of all 2500 Kannada films and the relevant information of films is also ready.
Then what is the reason for postponement you must be wondering.
Firstly the availability of space to conduct this exhibition. we have been given permission to hold the exhibition in the first and second floor of Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (that is under construction) near Shivananda Circle in Bangalore. But on account of Film Chamber annual elections on July 1, 2006 we get only three days to hold the exhibition instead of seven days thought earlier.
In the meantime Chitraloka developed another idea. The rare photographs, some of the unreleased films photographs and politicians in films are the new additions in this exhibition. Roughly 300 photographs are adding up to earlier idea of display of 2500 Kannada film photographs in the exhibition.
We hope all of you cooperate in the effort of Chitraloka to showcase a still Kannada films in at this exhibition starting from 16 th July 2006
