Vishnu - Ambi

Vishnuvardhan and Ambarish who made their debut in Nagarahavu, went on to act together in films like Sirithanakke Savaal, Premaloka (guest appearances), Diggajaru and Habba. They were real life pals too, which reflect even in some self-referential Kannada songs of today.

Soundarya was a Kannada actress, who was very prolific in the Telugu film industry. Her popular Kannada films include Dweepa (by Girish Kasaravalli), Aryabhata (a could-have-been-terrific whodunnit) and Sipayi. But her career defining performance came in the immensely popular Vishnuvardhan starrer Aapthamitra. This was her last film, which got released a few months after she was killed in a tragic plane crash.

Roaring Tigers

It takes an entirely different kind of self-image to have your photo embedded between two roaring tigers.

India, a land of many contradictions, where you can see things co-existing peacefully.

Here you can see a Himalayan God, an Oregon-based sports equipment manufacturer and a Maharashtrian sufi saint residing side by side, on the backside of an auto in cosmopolitan Bangalore.

Misogynist No. 863

If misogyny was a religion, auto drivers would belong to the priestly class.

I hate girls.
The heart that is hurt is always blue.

Vishnuvardhan & Amitabh Bachchan

Both started their careers playing non-central character in a non-commerical movie. Amitabh won the National Award for best supporting actor in his debut film "Saat Hindustani" and Vishnu made his entry into movies with the National Award winning movie "Vamshavruksha".

Both rose into prominence with angry young man roles - Vishnu in the iconic "Nagara Haavu" and Amitabh in the career defining "Zanjeer".

Both soon diversified into starring in comedy, action, masala and multi-starrer movies in seventies and eighties.

Both are lefties (LoDDes) Not only that they display their left-handedness prominently in most of the characters they portray - be it bashing up villains, holding the gun or writing.
