Kannada cinema mourns passing of director-writer Kunigal Nagabhushan

Kunigal Nagabhushan, the 70-year-old director-writer, belonged very much to the golden era of Kannada cinema.

Having started his career as an assistant director, he worked in several films with legends such as Dr Raj Kumar. He also scripted films in which the likes of Vishnuvardhan and Shankar Nag starred. He then went on to direct films, including one starring superstar Rajinikanth.

Nagabhushan studied cinematography and entered the film industry in 1961. He was part of the success of films such as Sahodarara Savaal, Simhada Jodi, Oorige Upakari, Sangliana, among others.

Nagabhushan was also honoured with a state award for his dialogues in the film Gowri Ganesha directed by Phani Ramachandra which had Anant Nag in a key role.

Nagabhushan took ill on Saturday and was rushed to hospital, where he passed away on Sunday morning due to cardiac arrest. Our condolences to his family.
