A giant film roll with pictures of cinema artistes from all around the country greets visitors at the entrance of Garuda Mall.

A hundred years of Indian cinema will be celebrated at the mall till January, 2013.

With the tag line — ‘lights, camera and action’, the mall will celebrate the ‘Great Garuda Shopping Festival’, which will end on January 1.

Actress Sumalatha Ambarish, actor Yash, producer Rockline Venkatesh and the managing director of the mall, Uday Garudachar inaugurated the festivities at the mall. Artiste Mohan Bikere has given a special touch to the mall with his creations — replicas of the sets of some popular Kannada movies that are placed throughout the mall.

The set of the Kannada movie Johnny Mera Naam has been put up at one end of the mall and kept open for the shoppers. Right beside it is a model of a mini-theatre, which portrays how films were viewed before multiplexes.


Along with this, cutouts of some popular actors and actresses can be seen throughout the mall. Murals of singers like Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar are placed in the mall as well. Actress Sumalatha Ambarish welcomed the shoppers and said that the concept of celebrating the hundred years of Indian cinema was a great concept.

“I love the art work that has been done in the entire mall — the work done by the artistes is commendable. Shoppers can get the real feel of the world of cinema and visit the sets which have been recreated,” she added.

Actor Yash was full of praises for the theme and said that it was a great step towards popularising Kannada cinema.

 “The mall looks beautiful and I am sure all the shoppers will be very excited to see the sets which have been recreated. It talks so much about Indian cinema as well as Kannada cinema,” he expressed.

Lifesize images of a shooting site have been erected in front of the mall. There is an image of a man filming a shot from a height on a crane camera, which is especially popular among the visitors.
