Actress Dr Bharathi Vishnuvardhan has been appointed by Karnataka
government as the head of the awards selection panel for the year
2009-2010. But she is now in a trapped situation. The reason behind
is that she has to review her husband late Dr Vishnuvardhan's
films, which are being nominated in several categories. She is
scared that she might face the criticism of public after the
verdict is out.
In 2007-2008, Smt Malathi Sudhir had resigned from her post
stating that her son Tarun Sudhir's film was in the contest. Even
CR Simha had quit the chairmanship following the participation of
his film Mathad Mathad Mallige in the contest for State
Award in 2007-2008.
Dr Bharathi Vishnuvardhan is now facing the same kind of
cumbersome situation. Her hubby Dr. Vishnu's movies like Aptha
Rakshaka, Bellary Naga and Master are being nominated
for State Awards. So she is confused whether to continue as the
head of the Awards panel or quit the chair. However, many people in
Gandhinagar are curious to know her decision.
