Dwarakish has been at the forefront of the Kannada film industry for over five decades and has many firsts to his credit, including the first Kannada feature film to be shot overseas and the first Kannada feature film music album to be recorded abroad. It was also the first production house from the south to shoot a Trilingual film on foreign shores.
Dwarakish Chitra’s comeback film Aapthamitra (adapted from Manachitratazh) had a record run of more than a year in major centers across Karnataka. It was remade in Hindi as Bhool Bhulaiya and in Telugu and Tamil as Chandramukhi, with Rajnikanth. Both these films were blockbusters as well.
Dwarakish Chitra’s 50 th film Chowka created history in the annals of cinema by featuring the coming together of 5 music directors, 5 Cinematographers, 5 dialogue writers, 5 Art Directors & 5 lyricists. It had the highest ensemble of technicians in a single film.
