Veteran pro Kannada activist and former MLA Vatal Nagaraj has come strong against the dubbing culture and has called for a film industry bundh on the 27th of January. Now the question is whether, the film industry support the bundh called bu Vatal Nagaraj or not?
The reason for this is, though Vatal Nagaraj has come forward and called for a bundh, usually it is the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce which has to take the decision in matters regarding this. Normally before calling a bundh, the KFCC calls for a meeting with other associations of the Kannada film industry mainly the workers union, Artistes Association and decides about the bundh. But this time, the bundh is called by Vatal Nagaraj and not KFCC.
As the matter is with the CCI, the KFCC is yet to take a decision for participating in the bundh or nor? In case, the KFCC doesn't call for a bundh on 27th due to technicial reasons, will the Kannada film industry participate in the bundh is yet to be seen. Even if the KFCC doesn't call for a bundh, yet the artistes and technicians can participate in the bundh, not as a part of any association, but as an individual who has concern over the language and the film industry. So, even if the KFCC doesn't call for a strike, then also everybody can participate in the bundh.
But how many associations and how many artistes and technicians will be a part of the protest is yet to be seen?
