2 min read

Mysuru: Sandalwood music director Hamsalekha lamented at the fact that the Film City, announced in Mysuru, is experiencing more delay than it was expected and hoped that it would gain momentum soon.

During his interaction with mediapersonnel here on Tuesday, Hamsalekha, credited Heritage City, Mysuru for contributing immensely for the growth of Sandalwood. Many began their studios here that churned out many memorable movies and the choice of City for the Film City project was an ideal one. However, issues like lack of space are hampering the project to take off, he decried.

Explaining how Kannada film industry is facing challenges from outsiders, Hamsalekha said today to make every movie a pan-India project, Kannada is losing its representation. “We need to showcase our Kannada and culture in cinema rather than noise,” he observed.

Paying rich tributes to the heritage legacy of Mysuru he said until a few years ago, every building had a touch of Mysore heritage design. But, of late, new constructions like Infosys campus in Mysuru are devoid of these heritage representations. “This pains a Mysurean like me and those who love Mysuru,” said Hamsalekha. He called upon architects and engineers of Mysuru to protect the heritage legacy of the City for future generations.

On imposing Hindi in Karnataka, Hamsalekha said although Hindi language was forced upon us since the Nehru era, these days it has taken a larger shape. North Indians want Hindi as their national language. While Kannada does not need Hindi but Delhi, Delhi does not want Kannada. It’s high time that the government takes measures to check compulsory Hindi in schools and protect Kannada language.
