Shivarajkumar will lead the meeting of Kannada film actors on January 19. The topic of discussion is dubbing. He is expected to return from Singapore where he is shooting for Aryan on the same day. The meeting will be held the same day. Shivanna has been staunchly opposed dubbing in Kannada and last year even announced it during the birthday celebrations of Dr Rajkumar at the Sri Kanteerava Studio.
In the last few days as the debate over dubbing rages on, actors have refrained from even commenting. With the return of Shivanna, the actors and those opposing dubbing will get a voice. Many producers and some directors have come out in support of dubbing. The actors are likely to take an opposite stance as Shivanna's opposition is well-known.
