Creating controversy is helpful for the cinema collections is the wrong notion. When ‘Kiriks’ happen (mothers of heroines be careful) the television channels would invite for the discussion in no way interesting for the people is what everyone has to understand.
Yesterday it was ‘Chappali Seve’ by Nayanakrishna and today it missed pent up frustration moment for Neha Patil for her irresponsible letter.
What the letter has said given to the media in the letter head of Neha B Patil (Nehasri)
ಪತ್ರಿಕಾ ಗೋಷ್ಟಿಗೆ ಆತ್ಮೀಯ ಆಹ್ವಾನ
‘ನಾನು ಕುಮಾರಿ ನೇಹ ಬಿ ಪಾಟೀಲ್ (ನೇಹಶ್ರೀ) ಕನ್ನಡದ ಹಲವಾರು ಚಿತ್ರಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ನಟಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವ ಕಿರು ಕಲಾವಿದೆ. ಇತ್ತೀಚಿಗೆ ಚಿತ್ರನಗೊಂಡು, ತೆರೆಗೆ ಸಿದ್ದವಾಗುತ್ತಿರುವ ‘ಒಲವಿನ ಓಲೆ’ ಚಿತ್ರಕ್ಕೆ ನಾಯಕಿಯಾಗಿ ನಟಿಸಿರುವುದು ತಮಗೆಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ತಿಳಿದ ವಿಷಯವೇ ಆಗಿದೆ. ಒಂದು ಕಡೆ ನಾಯಕಿಯಾಗಿ ಸಂತೋಷವೇಣಿಸಿದರು, ಮಾತೊಂದು ಕಡೆ ಮಾನಸಿಕ ಒತ್ತಡದಿಂದ ಖಿನ್ನಳಾಗಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಚಿತ್ರರಂಗವನ್ನು ವೃತಿಯನ್ನಗಿರಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕೋ,ಪ್ರವೃತಿಯನ್ನಾಗಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕೋ ಅಥವಾ ನಿವೃತಿಯಾಗಬೇಕೋ ತಿಳಿಯದೆ ಗೊಂದಲದ ಸ್ಥಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಿದ್ದೆನೆ. ಈ ನಿಟ್ಟಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನನ್ನ ನೋವು ನಾಳಿವುಗಳನ್ನು ನಿಮ್ಮದೊಂದಿಗೆ ಹಂಚಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲಾಳು ನಿರ್ಧರಿಸಿದ್ದು ನಿಮ್ಮಳೆಲ್ಲವನ್ನು ಬೇಟಿಯಾಗಲು ಬಯಸುತ್ಥಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ದಯಮಾಡಿ ಬನ್ನಿ.
ಇಂತಿ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಹುಡುಗಿ, ನೇಹಶ್ರೀ. ಡೇಟ್ 10-11-12, ಸ್ಥಳ ಗ್ರೀನ್ ಹೌಸ್, ಸಂಜೆ 6.30
In the letter nowhere it is mentioned it is ‘Olavina Ole’ press meet. Except director Teshi Venkatesh (he was cleverly among the guests) senior actor Shanker Ashwath, actor Santosh and a few others were welcomed on the dais.
When Shanker Ashwath started giving a speech on the film media was baffled why he is talking. Shanker Ashwath was asked to stop and give the mike to Neha Patil.Neha Patil for her irresponsibility was questioned for taking the media for granted and insisted to speak on only what was told in the letter. Neha was taken aback and it was the right of media to say like that as there was some preparation to create ruckus and take advantage of the television media – this was evident as three television channels OB Van were stranded outside to make it live in case hell breaks out like Nayanakrishna issue.
Neha turned nervous on the questions from media insisted to explain her problems. Wherever I go the ‘Sankranthi’ matter is cropping up and I wanted to tell through media it is a closed chapter she pointed. Then why talk about retirement in the letter she had no answer.
In addition to it why senior actor Shanker Ashwath was drawn on the stage she realized her mistake. Director Teshi Venkatesh came up on the stage and he was also heckled by the media for misusing the media.
Neha was asked to apologize with Shanker Ashwath for misusing him and actor Santosh of ‘Olavina Ole’ was a mute spectator.
Shanker Ashwath had really a bad day when media asked him to stop talking. He did not know anything. He was read the letter at this time and he turned very dejected.
Today morning I was questioned by milkman whether I have got up from bed on the wrong side. The result I found it today. I came with my mother and wife for the first time to address the media. I was not aware that I was called for a wrong time and I found media extremely correct in their questioning said Shanker Ashwath.
