As Prajwal stood up to explain his role on his new film ‘Jeeva’ the media also stood up considering Prajwal as the high ranking actor who spoke like Jnanapeeth award winner does. What his Papa had not done in three decades he has just did it in two years.
The intention of media was to respect the great (?) words Prajwal used in a section of the print media….feel like suicide after reading reviews, media is not cooperative, media is that and this he said.

The love and hate relationship of veteran Dwarakish and versatile vivacious Vishnuvardhana are nothing new. To the list of many between the two one more added up on Wednesday afternoon when Dwarakish took the mike to speak on the occasion of ensuing celebration of ‘Amrutha Mahotasav’.
Can this Vishnu not come and ask me ‘let us do a film together in the last five years’ after ‘Aptha Mithra’ success asked Dwarakish. I have done 50 films in my life but he did not ask me to do a cinema together. Is this the set up we have to continue in Kannada filmdom at ‘Amrutha Mahotsava’ time Dwarakish asks? A person who has given super hit after 18 years is sitting blank for five years. Can this happen anywhere Dwarakish asks again.
TITLE WILL NOT BE CHANGED – Sudeep

KISHORE DID NOT KEEP UP HIS PROMISE
At last the Tamil film ‘Vennila Kabbaddi Kuhu’ that sounds very similar to Kannada film ‘Kabbaddi’ has been released.
