Politician MTB Nagaraj is all set to produce a Kannada film. Sources said the process to identify a story and director is already in process.
He is one of the 17 MLAs in the current Assembly who were disqualified by the Speaker and are in the middle of the political crisis. Even before that MTB Nagaraj was a special MLA after it was declared last year that he was the richest MLA in India with declared assets of over Rs 1,000 crore. More recently two weeks ago, he was in the news for purchasing a Rs 12 crore worth Rolls Royce Phantom car.
So how did Nagaraj get the idea to produce a film? During the recent political crisis he was one of the MLAs who became rebels. The rebel MLAs stayed in Mumbai. BC Patil, cop turned actor turned politician was also one of the MLAs in the rebels group. Sources said that BC Patil suggested to MTB Nagaraj to produce a Kannada film. Nagaraj it seems was impressed with Patil's idea and agreed.
