Kallara Santhe team has set out against the Regional Censor Board of Karnataka after it warned the the film boss to delete the phrases like 'Gani loot' (mine loot), 'Vidhana Soudha' from it. Along with Ganigarike Rashtrikarana Horata Samithi and member of many other associations, the film crew held a protest march against the board on last Thursday.
Journalist-turned-screenplay writer Agni Shridhar, who has written story for the movie Kallara Santhe, was very angry with the decision of Censor Board. He said that a phrase 'Gani loot' was being used by newspapers and TV day in and day out. 'Looting the country" had been used in innumerable films over the decades. The censor board is acting in a childish and arbitrary manner with their silly demands.
Agni Shridhar further said that he would move to court for justice if Regional Censor Board would not wake up soon and drop its decision. He threatened that then the board would have to explain the rationality of deleting the prases before the court.
Sumana Kittur, the director of Kallara Santhe, Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha President KS Kodihalli Chandrashekhar, Karunadu Sene State Unit President Pattangere Jayanna, Karnataka Sarvodaya Party, Samatha Sainiaka Dal, DSS, Praja Vimochana Chaluvali and several other associations had taken part in the protest march.
