Actress Tara has taken the reins of Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy from director TS Nagabharana, whose tenure came to an end recently. The actor-turned-politician is excited to be the new president of the film academy.
Sharing her delight, Tara said, “I am really happy and looking forward to take the responsibility. I am proud of heading a department, which I am familiar with. For the next three years, I will be holding this position.”
Tara claims that she will be following the footsteps of Nagabharana, who was behind many successful programs like Belli Hejje and says that the actress, despite this new role, will be acting in films because the people of Karnataka recognised her as an actress. “It is because of this fact, I have got an opportunity to serve Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy.”
Finally, she thanked the government for giving this opportunity and praised her husband-cinematographer HC Venu for supporting her all through.
