Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, which was criticised for bad performance, is now set to do a good job by publishing 75 books about the industry on the occasion of 75th anniversary of Kannada film industry. KFCC has planned to pen 75 books to give a brief history of 75 years of Kannada films.

Kannada film industry lacked information of its beginning, development and history of industry personalities. The chamber has decided to introduce the contributors to the development of Kannada film industry for 75 years. The 75 books, which deal with the history of biggest personalities like Gubbi Veeranna, Pantulu, Nagendrarao, Rajkumar, Shankar Nag and Manjula, are at the stage of writing. Technicians names are also included in the books. The books mainly concentrate on the film personalities, who are no longer with us.
