For the last few years Sandalwood has been plagued by remakes. It seems the creativity has disappeared from Sandalwood as every other flick that releases is a remake of some other film made in a different regional language. The audiences too are bored due to this and have raised strong voices to produce movies with innovative ideas as they want to see some fresh and new stuff.
Now Producer K. Manju has also raised his voice against remakes formula. In an interview with a leading daily, K. Manju said "It's wrong to think that films that have been hits elsewhere will also score with the Kannada audiences. In these tough times, our heroes should instill confidence in their producers by making original films run." He added that the growing trend of remakes is 'nauseating'.
