Puneeth Rajkumar, Sudeep, Darshan, Shivarajkumar, Duniya Vijay and other A-list actors occupied chairs next to each other though they restricted their interaction with each other to mere smiles and gestures.
It is a well-known fact that Sudeep and Darshan maintain a distance from Shivarajkumar and Puneeth Rajkumar over on-screen and off-screen rivalry and that was very much evident on Monday. Nevertheless, it was heartening to note that they came together for a common cause and spoke in favour of promoting the Kannada film industry.
The who`s who of Kannada film industry made their presence felt – actors Jaggesh, Yogi, Nenapirali Prem, Sringara Kitty, Yash, Ajay Rao, Sadhu Kokila, Chetan Chandra and several emerging actors were present.
However, the convention was marked by the absence of leading ladies of Kannada cinemas with actresses of yester-years, such as Leeladevi, Hema Chowdhry, Tara, Shruti, Malashree, Padma Vasanthi and others occupying the dais. Among the current generation of actresses, only Amulya and Pooja Gandhi were seen.
Does it mean that those absent do not oppose dubbing?
