Century Star Shivaraj Kumar was at his vociferous best during his speech made in the Samadhi of his late father Dr. Raj Kumar near Kanteerava Studios on Tuesday which also happened to be the birthday of the Kannada Movic icon. . The leading star of the Kannada film industry came down heavily against a section of the Kannada film producers who are hell bent on bringing the dubbing culture into the Kannada film industry.
"There are many recent incidents which have really angered me. This is not a happy development. We have never been against any language or artists belonging to films of other languages. Recently I saw the film "3" and congratulated Dhanush on his performance by talking to him directly over phone. I love to see films of other languages. But if any producer tries to unsettle the present system and try to be smart to bring in policies which were opposed by my late father, I would vehemently oppose it' said Shivaraj Kumar underlinging his opposition to dubbing of other langauge films in Kannada.
There were many programmes which were conducted in Dr. Raj Kumar Samadhi and elsewhere to remember the great movie star of Kannada film industry who took the industry to greater heights.
In the early morning the House warming ceremony of Raghavendra Raj Kumar's house took place. On Wednesday, Puneet's House Warming ceremony will be celebrated.
