Actor Prem has urged the artistes and technicians to promote their films in border towns and create a market for Kannada films there in the coming days. Prem was talking during the success meet of his latest film 'Maley' being produced by Shiva Tejas and produced by R Chandru.
'On Sunday we had gone to border town Chitamani to promote 'Maley'. The show was houseful and I was shocked to hear that no Kannada actor had come to the town to promote their film till now. The people there said that there is a wrong notion in the film industry that Kannada films do not run there. Kannada films definitely have a good market there. Kannada film industry must make use of it and must not only release the film there, but also must promote their films' said Prem.
Prem also said that the earlier seven week moratorium against other language films is needed for the welfare of the industry. 'With so many big other language releases, the Kannada film industry is very much suffering. So, it is better to bring back the seven week moratorium against other language films' said Prem.
