The Basaveshwaranagara Main Road on Monday evening was flooded with people outside and it was one kilometer of traffic jam. Reason – Kichcha Sudeep the tall and towering actor was present at the Kalaa Vidha Film Academy evolved by Yethiraj and Aravind actors of Kannada cinema and television.
On the third floor Kichcha Sudeep arrived on time to light the lamp and mark a beginning to the Kalaa Vidha Film Academy – a training institute in direction, acting, anchoring, editing etc. Kichcha Sudeep received a tumultuous welcome and the massive crowd inside the Kalaa Vidha Film Academy auditorium and happiness of guests was something glorious. Bhavana, Diksha and Anusha dance program was sweet and short in the beginning.
Aravind Rao welcomed the gathering and on account of Election Code of Conduct the top cop Ravi Channanavar was not present and it was a day ago announcement of Parliament Election date kept the local MLA Gopalaliah busy.
KFCC President SA Chinne Gowda and noted producer, distributor and exhibitor Jack Manjunath were present with Kichcha Sudeep on the dais. Kichcha Sudeep lighted the lamp with others to give a opening to the dreams of Yethiraj and Aravind.
Yethiraj actor and director speaking on his brainchild ‘Kalaa Vidha Film Academy recounted the encouragement of his friends and invited manager of Kalaa Vidha Film Academy Smt Meena, faculty members Kesari Haravu, Sridhar, Gopal, Sujendra, Bhavana and Yoga master Annappa Belle.
The website of Kalaa Vidha Film Academy and You Tube channel were also released on this occasion. Young and intelligent Ramya is behind the technical work of the two.

Jack Manjunath in his short address stated the talent generated from here would be properly allocated in his films in the coming days.
Yethiraj disclosed why it is ‘Kalaa Vidha’ (Vidha meaning variety) in his address and it was convincing reply. He also introduced four students of the first batch and Thilak was applied by Kichcha Sudeep to give a start in the career of four.
The much awaited speech of Kichcha Sudeep was very apt and precise. He made an objection on indiscipline of some of the guests talking to themselves but later on he took to the useful tips.
Acting is nothing but exploring day by day and not possible to learn from any institute. An institute like my best friends Yethiraj and Aravind would give a route. Don’t come to the school of learning to become a star. You should come with innocent mind and passion. First you have to love yourself. The profession of cinema gives a lot of new things every day and it is a long going process. Every three months at the start of new film it is new environment. The children celebrate Deepavali, even grown up stars celebrate Deepavali holding guns, hiding and shooting. Be innocent always pointed Kichcha Sudeep. Let the dreams of those who learn from here cross the three floors and spread out he wished.
Looking at SA Chinne Gowda he adored from childhood Kichcha Sudeep was on lighter vein. I am seeing what Srimurali would be at this age looking at Chinne Gowda sir.
SA Chinne Gowda, President of KFCC mentioned that he is seeing vibrations at this place. The life of Kalavidha is like ‘Kattari and Chaku’ it is very sharp. Very carefully it should be used.
