Make quality films like 'Thithi': CM
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah urged the Kannada film industry on Thursday to produce quality films like ‘Thithi,’ which he watched recently. Speaking on the sidelines of the inauguration of the ninth edition of Biffes, the chief minister said, “Thithi was a unique movie made with a low budget and realistic content.” He stressed a quality movie should have a social message and good story.

Responding to the request by Rajendra Singh Babu, chairperson of the Karnataka Chalanachitra Academy, that the government look into the issue of multiplexes charging a huge amount for the snacks sold there and not allowing eatables from outside, the chief minister said, “I will hold a meeting with multiplex owners and film industry representatives to sort out the issue.”

Babu requested the chief minister to get multiplexes to screen Kannada films in prime time with minimum two shows per day. Siddaramaiah said the Kannada film industry would grow only if Kannadigas watched Kannada movies in theatres.
