Kannada actor Jaggesh may not be able to contest the election for the president post of the KFPA (Kannada Film Producers Association). According to the norms of the KFPA, a contestant should be a member of association. Sources say that the comedian is neither a producer nor a member of the association.
It was reported earlier that Jaggesh would be contesting the Producer Association's election to be held on the first week of May. Sources now claim that there are very less chances of him contesting the election. Although he is associated with many projects, he has not produced any film. It was his wife Parimala Jaggesh was the producer of many of his films.
As per the KFPA rules and regulations, a contestant of the elections must be a member of the association. The member may be an individual or a partner. Jaggesh has not produced either individually or in partnership with anyone. Moreover, his wife is also not a member of the KFPA.
However, producer Munirathna is another contender and he may occupy the top seat, if Jaggesh is ineligible to contest election. Now, it should be seen whether the KFPA norms will now allow the comedy actor to become a member and contest the election.
