It is a shocking development in the history of Sandalwood. The film industry, which has been opposing the dubbing culture since years, is likely to start the same in the upcoming days.
Sandalwood, which was in a shock on Thursday by seeing the poster of a dubbed Kannada movie Nann Gandana Hendthi (My Husband's Wife), had another shock in the late evening, when the move was supported by director Guruprasad.
Director Guruprasad, who has made famous movies like Mata, Edelu Manjunatha and Director's Special, has spoke in favour of dubbing. The director, who is known for being original in Kannada film industry, is also a hard core critic of remake movies. But Sandalwood was shocked, when Guruprasad talked in favour of dubbing.
Nann Gandana Hendthi is originally made in Hindi, which features Prem Chopra, Rati Agnihotri and Shakthi Kapoor in the lead roles. Sources from Gandhinagara has said that Nann Gandana Hendthi is just a sample, and there are more than 200 films, which has been dubbed into Kannada and awaiting the release.
However, the development has kept many Kannada actors, directors and other technicians in a lurch as they are scared of losing their job if dubbing enters Sandalwood. On the other hand, this is a positive development for few producers, who were eagerly waiting to purchase the dubbing rights of big stars' movies of other languages.
