Kannada actor Dr Vishnu’s 200th film - Aapthamitra- 2?

The 200th film of Kannada actor Dr.Rajakumar was Devatha Manushya, the 200th film of Ambarish was Gowdru and now the 200th film of Dr.Vishnuvardhana is going to be Aptha Mithra-II (Aptharakshaka).

Krishnakumar is given the complete free hand to make this film by part I producer of 'Aptha Mithra' and veteran kannada comedian Dwarakish. The film is going on the floor in the direction of P Vasu but Dwarakish will not be a part of this film even in the acting department too.

On last Monday when Dwarakish had come to Atri Hotel for the Dubai Babu meet, he said: “ Aptha Mithra is the film that has given new lease of life for me. I am the one who lost Rs.35 crores in film making and direction. Unfortunately after a successful film I take up a film next it has failed and that is the reason I am very apprehensive about my next film” said Dwarakish. Right now Dwarakish is working in seven Kannada films.

Kannada actor Uppi - Nagganna jodi back

The Kannada trio (Shailendra Singh, Uppi and Naganna) that gave successful kannada films Kutumba and Gowramma is back with Dubai Babu. It is a coincidence that all the three are Remakes from other languages.

Producer Shailendra Babu's earlier films Ganda Hendathi and Boy friend were also remakes. After the losses he incurred in Ganda Hendathi, he was looking for a pucca commercial subject and thus he decided to remake the super hit Telugu film Dubai Seenu into Kanada.

He is with Naganna and Upendra once again with beautiful Nikitha and Saloni playing heroines. Kannada veteran comedy actor Dwarakish is playing what Brahmanandam had done in Telugu. Kumar Govind the forgotten hero and producer is playing friend to kanada actor director Upendra.

Anil Jhaveri from Mumbai is the cameraman. With all this, 'Dubai Babu' has completed 70 percent of shooting in Mysore, Mumbai and Bangalore.

Kannada movie Taj Mahal brings cheers to its producer

The Kannada film 'Taj Mahal' has opened the floodgates of fortune for producer Shivashanker Reddy, executive producer Ashok Kumar, first time director R.Chandru, actor Ajay Rao and music director Abhiman.

For the distributor N.Kumar this is yet another whopping business since 'Taj Mahal' has been sold after two weeks by the producer for a fancy price. Distributor N Kumar earned multifold later in the 15 weeks and this is a big bumper for him.

The get-together party of 'Taj Mahal' at its 120 days was held in a low key at Green House restaurant on Sunday evening in the absence of producer, kannada hot actress Pooja Gandhi, supporting cast, music director and kannada actor Ajay Rao came late to the celebration.

According to an estimate of Gandhinagar, the kanada film 'Taj Mahal' has been sold for very good price by the producer and he is happy in the second week. But the distributors are more happy because in 11 theatres the film ran for 100 days, says director R Chandru who is now happy. His remuneration has been Telugu and Tamil remake rights of the film that has fetched him very good returns.
