When Union Cabinet Minister H D Kumaraswamy Watched A Rajkumar Film Four Times At A Stretch!

The newly sworn-in Union Minister, H D Kumaraswamy, is closely associated with the Kannada film industry. His first stint with the film industry was as a distributor and then as an exhibitor. The former Chief Minister owned the Channambika theatre in Holenarasipura in Hassan district for some time before eventually turning a producer. The film banner of Channambika Films is run by his wife Anitha Kumaraswamy.

Union Cabinet Minister and former Karnataka Chief Minister, H D Kumaraswamy is also a huge movie buff and an ardent fan of Kannada legendary actor Dr Rajkumar. Even before he plunged into active politics, Kumaraswamy would watch a lot of movies.

A Rajkumar Fan

In August 2023, H D Kumaraswamy, during the launch of his son Nikhil Kumaraswamy’s film under Lyca Productions, shared in detail his initial days of association with the Kannada film industry.
He said that as a student, he would hardly spend his time on studies and would rather watch a lot of films, especially those that starred Dr Rajkumar in the lead.
“After getting into politics, I started studying a lot, at least 10 hours but as a student, I spent a lot of time watching movies. Back then, the movies, especially Dr Rajkumar's films, had good messages and values. In fact, they helped me to a great extent when I started interacting with the public as a politician,” Kumaraswamy had said.

Watched Bahaddur Gandu Four Times At A Stretch

Going down memory lane, the popular leader had revealed that he had watched Bahaddur Gandu, a superhit Kannada film starring Dr Rajkumar four times at a stretch (morning, matinee, first and second shows).
Kumaraswamy’s first film as a distributor was Onti Salaga (1989) starring rebel star Dr Ambareesh, the rights of which he bought for Rs 10 lakh.
He then distributed films like Panchama Veda (1990), and Bhujangayyana Dashavathara (1991). He even attempted to make films on three occasions including one with Shankar Nag, all of which failed due to various reasons.
While Kumaraswamy made a handful of films under Channambika Films, which is run by his wife Anitha Kumaraswamy, the popular ones include Surya Vamsha (2000), the first film he produced that made at least three to four crore and Chandra Chakori (2003), which was another successful film that ran for over a year in a theatre. He launched his son Nikhil Kumaraswamy in Jaguar.
He had also expressed his desire to produce a movie in which Nikhil Kumaraswamy plays a dual role.
