·         Three hours one episode will be over. Before going on my chair I take 45 minutes for the preparation.

·         I would incorporate the issue of ‘Nethra Daana Maha Daana’ for this season. This is a good suggestion.

·         I don’t care if over exposure in small screen happens. I am not missing out on films. There will be no danger to my big screen career.

·         In the first season I do agree I have helped some people out of my way. I don’t want to disclose the money I have lent as good gesture.

·         Wait till March 6 – there will be one announcement. I have spoken to Samuthirakani of ‘Yaare Koogadali’ director. He is getting ready a script. I love to work with Gautham Menon. That is a long pending one.

·         My wife and children don’t see my films. My wife Ashwini has liked a few of my films like Akaash, Arasu and Prithvi after marriage.

·         My mother Smt Parvathamma Rajakumar watched the first season of KK and given good opinion.

·         Surely the season 2 is a learning experience. I have become a good listener.

·         The book on my father – Kannada and English copies are sold out. Over 2000 plus of each language have been sold. It is going for reprint.

·         From the book we have earned for Trust of my father around Rs.32 lakhs. We are using it for various social works in a systematic way.
