  • Kannada and Tamil industries Join Hands

    The Kannada and Tamil film industries have joined hands to fight the digital service providers against discriminatory pricing. There will be no screening of new films in Karnataka till the issue is resolved. In Tamil Nadu the industry has gone a step further and from March 16 there will be no film related activities including screening, shooting and promotional press meets. DSPs UFO and Qube have been told that no new Kannada and Tamil films will be given to them for transferring to the theatres. 

    There are three points on which there is a problem now. One the rates. Kannada industry is demanding reduction of the rates by 50 per cent. The DSPs are agreeing to only 22 percent reduction. The DSPs have also initiated cases against theatres. The film industries have demanded that all these cases have to be withdrawn. The theatres are worth many crores but are held to ransom by providing them with an projector and server worth Rs 4-5 lakhs and making them sign an unequal agreement preventing them from moving to cheaper alternatives and then charging producers exorbitant prices. The third demand is to give freedom to theatres to opt for any DSP they want. As of now a theatre can have only one set of server and projector. But there are several available which are cheaper. The industries are demanding that there should be no monopoly of any one group. As of now UFO and Qube are the two dominant DSPs in Karnataka. Now both of them are on the verge of merging creating a single monopoly. 

    Actor producer Vishal represented Tamil film industry in the meeting with KFCC in Bengaluru today. He was very specific and and said that there will be no film activity whatsoever from March 16. This will go on till the DSPs agree to the demands. The two industries have also said that they will henceforth decide on the future course of action together and will keep each other in the loop about any development. The Telugu film industry which was part of the protest has alone agreed to the proposal of UFO and stopped the protest. The Kannada and Tamil industries have therefore closed ranks. 

    There will be no screening of new films of any language in Karnataka. It is not limited to Kannada and Tamil which are protesting. New Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi and English films will also not be screened. Sa Ra Govindu requested all producers and exhibitors to cooperate in the matter. He said exhibitors from across Karnataka including north Karnataka exhibitors under Odugouder and those in Mangaluru will be asked to cooperate unitedly in the issue so that all producers and film makers will benefit.

  • Vishal Offers Role To K Manju - Exclusive

    vishal offers role to producer k manju

    It was a peasant surprise for Kannada producer K Manju. Tamil actor-producer Vishal who had come to the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce for a meeting on Saturday saw Manju for the first time there and identified an actor in him. 

    Vishal approached Manju and asked him if he had acted before and if he wished to act in films. Manju has produced over 40 films in Kannada and acted in guest roles in quite a few. He has not done a full fledged character role though. Vishal's enquiry floored him. 

    Vishal did not know about Manju but just looking at him for the first time he was convinced that Manju would make a good actor. He asked if Manju would consider acting in a Tamil film if a role was offered to him. Manju was all smiles and charmed over with the offer.
