  • Kashinath Was An institution

    actor, director, producer kashinath

    Kashinath, who died today, cannot be just described as an actor-director-producer. He was an institution in himself. You can call him a deemed university if you like. And his it was not just about films that he was knowledgeable about. Through his films, he gave his life's message. All his films are called bold, entertaining etc. But if you look closely, his films are about women empowerment, about subtle family relationships, about friendship and being human. But he said and portrayed these things in such an entertaining way that it became imbibed in the audience's minds without them realizing it. 

    kashinath_18.jpgTwo examples of him would tell how he saw things. More than 25 years ago, he suggested that traffic lights should have countdown time so that motorists can switch off their vehicles and save fuel. The idea was adopted by Bengaluru traffic police later. Even in simple things in life, he was very organised. When writing down or saving a phone number of a person he met, he not only saved their names but also their work and other characteristics. So if he needed to find people from a particular area, he had to just search the area name. 

    kashinath4.jpgThe number of films he acted in over the last 40 years is not many. It is less than 50. But the impact they have had on the Kannada film industry is immense. He showed that films can be made without being part of the mainstream film industry. He was not only independent in thought but also in film making issues and business. His early films were remade in Hindi and Malayalam and dubbed into Telugu. 

    kashinath5.jpgIn the last few years he was once again noticed by Sandalwood as an actor. It was more than 10 years ago that he directed his last film Appachchi. After that he remained outside popular media for sometime. He returned for a stint on the small screen. He was seen alongside Ganesh in Zoom recently. In the multistarrer Chowka in 2017 by Tharun Sudhir, Kashinath's role became the highlight. It seemed that Sandalwood had rediscovered the potential of Kashinath. He was also playing the lead role in Olu Muniswami which was set for release. Just when it seemed that we will see more of Kashinath in the coming days, he has left this world.

  • Sridevi said click only two photos! – KM Veeresh Experience

    sridevi said click only two photos

    Actress Sridevi who shot to fame in Telugu and Tamil industries and later ruled Bollywood film industry had an heart attack and expired earlier today in Dubai.

    Being a photo journalist in Bengaluru, I had the opportunity to click her photos only once. In 1995 Sridevi and Anil Kapoor were shooting for a Bollywood film in Bengaluru's Abhiman Studio. I got this information and went straight to Abhiman studio. It was a break time and Sridevi was sitting with Anil Kapoor. I approached her and requested that I need some pics of her for magazines. She told me to come the next day.

    I returned the next day with my camera. She had not expected that I would return on the time she had told. She said let’s take photos after the film shot. That shot took nearly two hours. After that she called me and said that she will pose for only two clicks. I agreed and we went inside the shooting sets and I selected a place where the lighting was good and she stood there posing. I managed to click 5-6 snaps within seconds.

    My friend Srinivasan who runs the monthly magazine Hamsa Raaga was a big fan of Sridevi. I used to provide cover photos for that magazine. Whenever we used to meet he would always talk about Sridevi. Such was his devotion to her. After clicking photos of Sridevi I got some of the photos printed and took it to him. I was eager to see his reaction. I showed him all the the photos I had taken along except photos of Sridevi which I had kept in a separate cover. He has selected all the pics and I asked him how much he will pay if I gave him one extraordinary photo.  For every cover page photo, he used pay me Rs. 150. He said he would pay whatever I asked for the "extraordinary" photo. Slowly I opened the cover containing photos of Sridevi and once he saw that they were the photos of his favourite star Sridevi he was shocked and jumped from his seat. He was ready to pay me Rs 1,000 but I took the same amount what he used to pay me for the other photos. Once the HamsaRaga issue came out with Sridevi's cover page it was a big hit and literally sold like hot cakes, revealed Srinivasan. Later I had given the same photo to many other magazines and all were superhit. Later I had given Sridevi photos to many magazines which got published in their Cover pages.

    Crazy star Ravichandran was also a fan of Sridevi. He wanted to cast her in one of his films but he was not able to obtain her shooting dates. Ravichandran was regularly trying to cast her and for a particular movie Sridevi had agreed to act in the Kannada movie. But the remuneration demanded by her resulted in the pan being dropped. The amount she had asked was Rs 50 lakhs. During those days many movies would have completed their entire shooting with that amount.
