A book on the history of Kannada films is in the initial stages of conception. The Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce has initiated the project and according to sources, author and film director Baraguru Ramachandrappa will lead the project.
In 2002, a history book on Kannada film industry named Kannada Chalanachitra Itihasa was brought out by the Kannada University, Hampi with KFCC support. Book was edited by Dr Vijaya, M B Singh, V N Subba Rao and others. But the project ran into trouble and controversy. The book was subsequently banned along with Six journalists who had worked on the book.
The new book is still in a nascent stage and the people who would work on the project apart from Baraguru Ramachandrappa are not yet decided.
