The lead artists of the Kannada film industry seems to be more lucky than the regular producers, as in this year the actor-turned producers and actor turned directors are raking in more money from the Box office than the producers.
While all the films featuring Sudeep produced by other regular producers were box office duds in the year 2005, this year he has proved to be lucky as producer of Autograph and distributor of Hubballi.
My Autograph which was directed by Sudeep for the first time is the biggest hit of the year and has run for silver jubilee in a few centers. The actor made some good profits as the producer of this film also. Now, he is repeating the success trend as a distributor for the film Hubballi directed by Om Prakash Rao.
Sudeep is reported to have paid a fancy price of Rs. 1.08 crores to acquire the distribution rights of the film to a major area like Bangalore and he is expected to rake in Rs. 75 lacs in the first week itself.
Darshan turned producer with Jothe Jotheyalli and he is expected to make a profit of more than Rs. 1 crore in his first attempt as a producers.
Star brothers Vijaya Raghavendra and Murali were behind the wheels of production for this year's big hit Sevanthi Sevanthi. Rockline Venkatesh entered the industry as an actor and his Sirivantha has already been declared a hit. Om Prakash Rao, the director and producer of Hubballi is also an actor. Except for "Rambha' all the other successful films have some connections with the actors with regard to production or distribution.
