Kannada film producer Chandulal Jain, who has contributed hit
movies like Bhoothayyana Maga Ayyu, Bhaktha Siriyal, Thabbali
Ninade Magane, Godhooli, Veerapan, Gangavva Gangamai, Hemavathi,
Praya Praya Praya and Bethale Pooje, has passed away
at 9.45 am on December 17 2009. He was survived by his wife Leela
and sons Rajkumar and Rohith.
Earlier this year, Chandulal Jain had celebrated his 74th
birthday along with his 50th marriage anniversary in January. He
had expressed his dream of producing a movie called
Videshi on the occasion. He was very dedicated to Kannada
film industry. Even Dr. Rajkumar was surprised at his love for
Kannada Cinema and had given his call-sheet to him for the hit
movie Thaayi Devaru.
The producer believed in the principle 'simple living and high
thinking". Even though he had produced big Kannada movies, he never
thought of construct a house for himself. Once, producer
Parvathamma Rajkumar had requested BDA to give him a site.
Chandulal never liked luxurious life. His only hobby was playing
cards. That doesn"t mean that he was a gambler. It was his
entertainment and he used to keep Rs. 10 as bet.
Mourning his death, producer Sa.Ra. Govindu said, “Chandulal's
death is an unbearable loss to the industry." Another producer KCN
Chandrashekhar said, "Jain's death has created a big void in the
industry." Now Kannada film industry has lost such a genuine
producer. We at Oneindia wish may his soul rest in peace and may
god give power to his family to bear his loss.
