Golden star Ganesh as he is called in the Kannada film industry arrived with Mungaru Male. With successive blockbusters like Hudugaata, Cheluvina Chiththaara, Chellaata and Galipata, there was no stopping the star. Eight of his films ran for hundred days! His latest release is Sangama.

So it was a treat for his fans when they got a 'golden' chance to chat with the star during a Rediff chat. For those who missed the chat, here's what transpired.

Ganesh says, HI everyone Ganesh here. I am here to answer your questions.
