  • Darshan's Respect For His First Producer - Km Veeresh Writes

    mg ramurthy, darshan

    Darshan does not show his emotions in the open. I had a chance to witness first hand how he treats and respects people who have supported him. 

    Recently I had been to Challenging Star Darshan's office the "Thoogudeepa" distribution office in Gandhinagar with Majestic movie producer MG Ramamurthy and his friends. When we entered the chamber Darshan was sitting in his chair and Majestic movie director PN Sathya was also there. As soon as Darshan saw MG Ramamurthy he immediately stood up and greeted him and forced him to sit on his chair. Ramamurthy who is very soft spoken was shy and refused to sit on that chair. Darshan said "you are the person who gave me life from Majestic and because of that I'm here and you are my Annadata  and you have to sit on that chair otherwise I will stand and talk with you." There was no other choice for Ramamurthy and he sat in that chair and Darshan pulled a plastic chair and sat on that.

    I have visited Thoogudeep office many times before. Whenever I have gone there the Boss' chair was mostly vacant. Apart from Darshan the only other person who uses it  sometimes is Dinakar Toogudeepa when he comes to the office. Darshan's associate Mallikarjun sits next to that chair and I had asked him many times when Darshan would come there to sit on that Boss chair. Mallikarjun used to smile and said even he doesn't know.

    On that day when I went with Ramamurthy in a casual talk with Darshan I asked when asked how many times he has come to Gandhinagar office. He said it was only his second visit. "I first entered this office when we inaugurated the office during Bul Bul distribution." Dinakar has kept a film box and on that an idol of Saibaba. When asked him which movie box it is Dinakar said it was Bul Bul reel and that pooja is conducted for it and Saibaba everyday.

    dirty gimmick by bbmp on darshan

    The BBMP has played a dirty gimmick which is nothing but a cheap publicity trick on actor Darshan. It has imposed a fine of Rs 100 on him for allegedly not paying property tax for his house for 2017-18 and 2018-19. The grand total of tax is Rs 12,024 including interest. Imposing interest and nominal fine is a routine thing which applies to lakhs of property owners in Bengaluru every year.

    To make a song and dance out of imposing Rs 100 fine on Darshan is nothing but a publicity stunt by BBMP. What was the need to go to the media and announce the Rs 100 fine? In fact BBMP issued a notice for payment of property tax to Darshan. This is also a routine development and notices are issued to lakhs of property owners every year. Even before the notice reached Darshan's house, BBMP went to the media about it.
