Veteran dialogue writer and director Kunigal Nagabhushan who was ill for quite some time breathed his last early Sunday morning.
Nagabhushan entered the film industry in 60s and he worked as an assistant director for 'Nandi' to director N L Lakshminarayan before making his debut as a director in the 70s. He directed films like 'Baalu Kenu' and 'Ashirwada'. However, his stint as a director was a small one and Nagabhushan slowly started writing dialogues for films. His first film as a dialogue writer was 'Simha Swapna'.
During the 80s end and early 90s, Nagabhushan was the most busiest dialogue writer and he earned himself the title of 'Navarasa Visharada' and went on to write for more than 200 films continuously. Slowly that too came to an end and off late Nagabhushan suffered due to ill health.
