Artistes to protest dubbed film

Federation President Ashok and the members will stage a protest in front of the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday and decide the plan of action on Friday.

Ashok told mediapersons the movie had been simultaneously shot in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada. Veteran artistes of the Kannada film industry have opposed the dubbing of other language movies into Kannada. For the past 50 years the Kannada Film Industry has banned dubbing of films for the fear that film workers and technicians would go jobless.

“We checked with the movie's shooting schedule, and this movie has been shot in Karnataka only for three days and the remainder of the movie has been shot in Andhra Pradesh. Moreover, the producer of the film Geetha Krishna has produced false documents and has also claimed tax exemption, censor certification and has obtained a permit to publicise the movie in Karnataka," he said. The movie has new actors who do not speak in Kannada and their voices have been dubbed, he added.
