‘First Rishab now Yash’, Anupama’s ‘Love’ for Kannada Cinema is getting ‘Cynical’

Anupama Chopra announces a new show on her youtube channel Film Companion. After recent backlashes, the notable critic is seen taking a keen interest in Kannada cinema.

South Industry

South Indian films are not only doing well in their local markets, but they are also doing well in movie theatres around the globe. All of the films, whether they are in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, or Malayalam, have created a craze in the Hindi-speaking region as well. However, the industry that took the maximum limelight for 2022 is Sandalwood.


This is the year that Kannada cinema arrived on the national stage. Previously, Sandalwood had always been a poor member of the southern film industries. Films from this region struggled to sell the satellite rights of the dubbed versions to Hindi entertainment channels. What was worse, Tamil and Telugu films always did better business in the state than Kannada films.

After decades of ignorance, the film industry finally woke up to the need for adopting competition for the growth of Kannada artists and art beyond its borders. Thanks to films like KGF, Kantara, Vikrant Rona, 777 Charlie, and many more, the whole country is now lauding the artists and filmmakers in the state. It’s no longer a passive participant, but an active force, which could impact the collective culture and filmmaking style of Indian cinema.

Anupama’s love for Kannada cinema

Speaking about this year’s South dominance Anupama Chopra organized a show called “Round Table Session” to talk about this year’s performance. Top South Indian filmmakers including SS Rajamouli, Lokesh Kanagaraj, Kamal Haasan, Prithviraj Sukumaran, Swapnadutt Chalasani, and Gautham Vasudev Menon participated in this chat show.


Surprisingly, Anupama Chopra failed to invite the best directors from the Kannada industry, an industry that made the maximum profit as compared to other southern states. The infamous critic received several backlashes for the same and was forced to roll out a justification for this oblivion.

After criticism, the Film Companion’s chief organized another roundtable meet-up, and this time she invited Kannada actor Rishab Shetty and performed damage control.

Well, now it seems she has tried to cool things down even further as she has announced a new talk show with one and only Rocking star Yash. Yes, Anupama in her latest announcement, has invited KGF fame Yash to a talk show called Front Row.


“At the second-anniversary special of #FCFrontRow, @TheNameIsYash sat across @anupamachopra with his fandom in audience, for a conversation about superstardom, his craft and the future. What an electrifying evening! The full video drops soon on Film Companion’s YouTube channel,” a new post from the channel was Tweeted.
