For the people of Karnataka, the worst political drama enacted by their respectable netas (leaders) in the state is like a 70mm script. The kind of developments that the state has been witnessing in its political circles happens only in the movies, they say.
Well now here is the surprise. Two movies based on the state's political crisis are expected to hit the screens shortly. Mukhyamantri I love you (Chief Minister I love You) and Papa's Adventures are the likely titles for the films to be directed by Ravi Belagere and Ashok Khenny respectively.
In the film, Mukhyamantri I love You, newcomer Vijay plays the lead character of the chief minister while Bhavana plays his mistress and Haripriya his wife. This movie will also have a character called Tantri Gowda, which will be played by leading actor of yesteryears, Loknath.
The second movie, which will be produced by Ashok Khenny, will revolve more around Deve Gowda and his political adventures in Karnataka. Incidentally, Khenny is also the managing director of the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise Limited, which is implementing the controversial Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor Project.
