  • Dayal Doubts Regional Kannada Jury Members Recommendations - Exclusive

    haggada kone image

    First of all I am glad to share with you that the Kannada feature film Harivu has won the best regional film award in 62 nd national film Awards.Apart from Harivu, I am also happy for actor Sanchari Vijay and the Makeup men Nagaraju and Raju who also won the awards for the film Naanu avanalla..Avalu..!

    My film Haggada kone missed the award though I Feel confidently that it deserves to win few awards.

    I went through the list of Award winners/films and felt strongly that there were many Kannada films including my film Haggada Kone  had better choice than the award announced as I have seen most of the films that have won the awards.In specific I would like to mention Kannada films including Haggada kone deserve to win Best supporting actor,Back ground score,best Adopted screenplay,Dialogue.

    I am deeply concerned over the recommendations on various category of awards made by Regional Jury members representing Kannada films for final round of selection by central jury members.

    In this regard,I have Filed a RTI petition with I & B Ministry by demanding the List of Kannada films submitted for awards and final List of Kannada films Recommended for various Awards by Kannada Regional Jury Members to Central Jury members.

    I have my Doubts on the recommendations made by Our regional Kannada Jury Members.

    In fact, the same lapse took place when the Kannada films Recommended for Indian panorma at IFFI 2014. Except the film December 1,no other films were recommended. In fact, Harivu had been also submitted for IFFI 2014.

    This is the high time, this matter has to be dealt to posses the Deserved Awards/statuses in National Level for Kannada films.

    Also every time It clearly reflects that who ever heads the central Jury,he/she bags maximum awards for his/her film Industry as it happens this time for Tamil film Industry as the Jury Members Head was Shri.Bharathi Raja.Also well known film Maker Shri. Bhagya Raj was there in the central Committee.


  • Has Not Let Down Kannada - Tara

    Actress and Member of Legislative Council Tara has said that she has not let down Kannada during the 62nd National Film Awards and has nothing to do with Kannada films not getting proper recognition and awards in the final round.

    'I am very much upset about why Nan Avanala Avalu director  is bringing my name unnecessarily to this controversy. I have nothing to do with. I was the chief for the Eastern movie zone and I only came to know in the final round that 'Ulidavaru Kandanthe' was also in the competition. As I have acted in the film, I immediately backed out of the panel and I wrote a letter to Rajyavardhan Rathore the Minister of State for Ministry of Information and Broadcasting that there is no representative from Kannada film industry and its high time that the ministry appoints a representative for the Kannada films. I also emailed the letter to KFCC president Thomas D'Souza. If I am not concerned about Kannada films, why would I have done all this ' asks Tara.

    Following the the letter of Thara Anuradha

    To        Date 28-02-2015


    Hon’ble Minister of State for Ministry of Information and Broadcasting

    Government of India

    New Delhi


    Respected Sir,



    Sir, being a responsible BJP MLC and a  NATIONAL awardee worked in more than 500 Films in All South Indian Lnaguages representative of Kannada film Industry I would like to bring the following issues to your kind notice. The Directorate of Film Festivals (DFF) is acting very impartial and made injustice with Kannada film industry for the years. Here I would like to mention few of them they selected me for the Eastern Zone as Chair Person. I was unawear of our Kannada Films. Later i came to know only on 22nd Feb after giving the results of Eastern Zone. Now telling me that, I am ineligible for the second round (deciding round for the film awards) of preview by stating that,  one of my films is appeared in the submitted Kannada film list. 

    If I am not there in the final round to talk AUTHENTICALLY on my Kannada films, there will be NO REPRESENTATIVE FOR OUR LANGUAGE. I STRONGLY OPPOSE this, because this is not the first time it has happened to OUR KANNADA. Even at the preliminary round our noted veteran poet and Dr.DoddaRange Gowda Ji has been called for the preview and sent back within a day. After two days a jounerlist from Bangalore as jury. During the last Indian Panorama there were no representatives from our state. 

    Above all the DFF is PREASSUMING and pressurizing me to sign a DRAFT, prepared and sent to me by the DFF official. (PLEASE NOTE KANNADA FILM SCREENING STARTED ONLY FROM 23rd and the result is yet to come, ''Only my film comes to final round, then only they can say I am eligible''. But the Draft sent to me  on the very next day of screening. How can they predict the result so early!?....). I STATE THIS IS AN INSULT AND PREPLANNED INJUSTICE TO OUR STATE AND KANNADA FILM INDUSTRY. The DFF must understand that, we are Representing a very big State and answerable to our film industry before the media also at the LEGISLATIVE HOUSE.   

    Dear Sir Now my PRAY to your is, if I am ineligible I request and suggest Dr.RAMA Madam a senior south Indian Kannada actress, Theatre Director, Retd. HOD of Drama department, Bangalore University, to represent our KARNATAKA STATE and Kannada film industry at 62nd national film Awards. 

    I request for your kind intervention and for the justice.

    Attachment: Draft prepared and sent to me from DFF official 


    With Great Respect and Best Regards



    Actress & Hon’ble BJP Sitting MLC
