The Postal Department of the Government of India had earlier released stamps in memory of Dr Rajakumar and Dr Vishnuvardhan. Now the Postal department is all set to release a postal cover in memory of Dr Vishnuvardhan's 70th birth anniversary.
The Kannada film industry is often poorly represented on postal stamps and covers and apart for a couple of instances, not much representation has been given to Kannada film industry compared to its contemporaries.
Now a special postal cover to mark the 70th birth anniversay of Dr Vishnuvardhan is all set to be released today evening. The event is organised at the General Postal Office building in Bangalore and many philatelists and celebrities from Kannada film industry are expected to be apart of this event.
