Despite the election to the KFCC postponed by a month, there is every sign of the October election being a high-profile one. On the heels of K Manju beginning background preparation to contest for the post of president of the film chamber, comes the news that past president HD Gangaraju and distributor Gangadhar planning to contest for the same post.
The president's post this time is for the distributors' sector and all three are well-known in the film industry. It will be a huge contest if any two of them face-off.
However, there could be a bigger face-off if Muniratna, the president of the producers association decides to contest. There were some reports months ago that Muniratna has decided to contest for the KFCC president's post. If it comes true, there will a multi-cornerd fight.
However, very rarely do two big names contest against each other. The last time when a high profile contest took place was between Jayamala and Ramesh. Ramesh won the close fight. In recent years, the only time it looked like a fight was between Basant Kumar Patil and B Vijay Kumar. But it ended up being an one-sided fight with Patil winning comfortably.
This elections could be different if any of these four biggies face off.
