Approximately around 150 Kannada films made in the last few years have not yet been purchased by TV channels for telecast. These included some of the popular films with popular actors. Some hit films also did not get the price they expected.
For example, hit film Kendasampige sold for Rs 45 Lakh for TV while everyone in Sandalwood expected it to fetch at least Rs 1 crore. The TV market is so down that many under production films are in jeopardy. But there are some good tidings. Jigarthanda which was a comeback for Rahul has been picked up by a TV channel for Rs 1 crore. This is a good sign for Sandalwood.
