Nana Patekar offered ‘Shraddanjali’ to the departed souls Dr Vishnuvardhana and Dr KS Ashwath at the beginning of his address to the Kannada cinema media at The Club on Wednesday afternoon.
I have not met Dr Vishnuvardhana but from his looks and hoardings I have seen from last so many days put up in various places I understand he is in the heart of Kannadigas. Nana also remembered Dr Ashwath and kept silence for a few seconds holding the mike.
Kalakar has no caste. Kalakaar is the caste according to me. Artists have no religion he said. Suddenly Nana remembered VK Murthy getting the Dada Saheb Phalke award. He is such a gem and always behind the camera gets the first recognition is something great said Nana.
