‘Nimmelara Abhimanadha ‘Bikshe’ and Devara ‘Rakshe’ is keeping me for so long in my career remarked the superstar of Kannada cinema Vishnuvardhan at the 100 day celebration of ‘Simhadriya Simha’ in which he plays triple role.
At the woodlands hotel in Bangalore on Sunday morning the jam packed presence of fans, industry dignitaries and media persons looked like a festival going in Bangalore. Added to this opulent style of celebration the rain god graced the occasion with thunderous rain. Nearly 150 mementoes were given away in the four long hours pulled and pestered (for journalists) function. There were rain of applauds besides the rain flower. While the festive look was holding a mirror to the positive developments in Karnataka the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce showered a rain of relief with his announcement that Kannada film industry is placed second in the Indian film industry.

I am also a fan of Vishnuvardhana and he is living in my constituency. I wish Vishnuvardhan to work for 30 more years in the films and give meaningful films hoped Ramalinga Reddy.
Sri Vidyanand Shenoy famous for his ‘Bharatha Darshana’ recalled the warriors of this country remembering the Vandematharam song sung by group of boys and girls. Explaining from his experience the fall of a tree because of internal germs in it Shenoy applied this example to society and the standards of the society should not suffer from germs. For this the good quality of films are needed. In the world among 48 cultures 46 have already crashed. We in India are famous for cultural roots strength. Alexander to Mushraff no one could destabilize our country. The country’s strong culture is in tact and continues to be strong in future he hoped in his thought provoking speech.
Justice Rajendra Prasad: The team work has won laurels today. Two songs in the film and Narasimha Gowda role in the film are tremendous. Let the films also focus on social causes besides giving entertainment he hoped.
JAGGESH – Known for his comic touch in every film and his speech too popular comedy actor Jaggesh called upon the people to come to theatre so that more good quality of films is possible. Don’t stick on Television sets at homes he urged. The same Jaggesh had seen a song in the television set of this film. There is no need to say that he himself has not watched the film in the cinema hall. However he is jealous of increasing youth in Vishnuvardhan.
RAMESH – Producer Vijayakumar of 70 kgs has 150 kgs of heart. He is such a nice guy. Endhinanthe Ramesh Hogaluvudakke Shuruvittukondaru. Vishnuji is my good friend, philosopher and guide. Narayan is a bundle of talent.
BHARAHI VISHNUVARDHAN – This is a film made with lot of love and affection. Narayan’s strength to work with 500 plus persons is tremendous. Producer Vijayakumar is pillar of strength in helping others.
PRODUCER ANKALGI – I suggest to the Central government that Vishnuvardhan should be given Padma Bhushan. The state government recommend it as early as possible said the first cinemascope film Sosethanda Sowbhagya producer Ankalgi.
AMBARISH – The kuchuki friend of Vishnuvardhan expressed it is difficult to do one role but Vishnuvardhana has performed three roles. I and Vishnu both took part in our debut film ‘Nagarahavu’ now after three decades are here at the same woodlands hotel. I wish Vishnuvardhan should get Padma Vibhushan from the central government told the Member of Parliament to the thundering applause.
S.NARAYAN – This 100 day celebration is like scoring 100 runs in a tough pitch. The state is reeling under drought. I remember an auto going inside the village with film posters. The villagers chased him because they are suffering from drought and they had no money to see films. At such a severe condition the people have made this film 100 days. I have worked with Vishnuji for four films and he is a pillar of strength. There was very good vibration with him. I am proud to be with such a brilliant actor who is extremely human.
VIJAYAKUMAR B– Producer of this ‘Simhadriya Simha’ wants to produce a film with Vishnuvardhan in five roles in future. I will be always indebted to Vishnuvardhanji he expressed.
VISHNUVARDHANA- Karnataka State is facing some problems. Let the answer come to it quickly. Like how the rain lashed today and given relief the fans in my life of 30 years have given me relief. Abhimanigala ‘Bikshe’ and Devara ‘Rakshe’ has helped me to continue so long in my career. Preethi annnuva Shakthi is great. I have not done anything and everything has been god made through me – Avanu Madsiddane. My fans are my mirror. I see my mistakes through them Vishnuvardhana expressed to the thunderous applaud. He also sang a song from Simhadriya Simha Kalladhare Naanu…..
It was a wonderfully conducted function by Sanjeev Kulkarni and Tashwini has to improve in her Kannada diction.
Sound of Music Gururaj and company treated with lovely entertainment programs.
