Question: What encouraged the government to consider your name for this position?

Answer: I have been a part of Sandalwood for more than 25 years. My contribution to Kannada films is what encouraged the government to appoint me as KCA chairperson.

Question: What are your priorities?

Answer: There is a shortage of theatres across the state for screening Kannada films. I want to ensure that mini theatres are constructed at all talukas.

Question: There is shortage of theatres in district headquarters, including Bangalore. How are you planning to resolve this?

Answer: Many multiplexes in Bangalore are not screening Kannada films. I will hold discussions with the managements of these multiplexes to ensure that Kannada films are screened. The government should encourage those who want to construct theatres at district headquarters.

Answer: Nagabharana successfully organized BIFF recently. We want to organize children’s film festival and short documentary film festival as well.
