For the film media it is for the first time ‘Modhala Sala’ literally the good nature of Mr Kiran Mantri came to the notice.
One of the chief guests at ‘Modhala Sala’ audio release at The Bell Hotel on Wednesday evening Mr Kiran Mantri the flourishing building and construction tycoon of garden city of Bangalore not only announced Rs.1 lakh for the depressing situation of water related diseases at Madhugiri and Pavagada but also came forward to help the news photographers, cable and television workers, cine workers. Give me a land I would construct living place for all such needy people he said.
The photographers what Mr Kiran Mantri said are not backward as he thinks. The status of all news photographers in every segment of film media is comfortable.
Sharing the platform with challenging star Darshan, Thara, Narayana Gowda the pillar of Mantri Mall and Mantri Greens Mr Kiran Mantri stated that in AKKA sammelana in USA people wanted to hear Thara but not the chief minister of Karnataka. That made Thara to cover her face from ‘Nachike’!
However the Kannada admiration of Kiran Mantri is to be noted. 73 percent of employees in Mantri Mall are Kannadigas. One screen of the six in Malleswaram Mantri Mal will be always set aside for Kannada films and one more Mall coming up in Jayanagar with four screens will also accommodate one screen for Kannada films stated Kiran Mantri.
