Prithviraj Kapoor played the father of Dr.Rajkumar in the film Sakshatkara (1971). It's an evergreen classic.

Lata Mangeshkar's first Kannada song was for the movie Sangolli Rayanna. She gas sung few others later.

Mohd.Rafi's first Kannada song was Neenelli Nadeve Doora (Translation - Where would you walk so far?) in 1967.

Kishore Kumar's first Kannada song was Aadu Aata Aadu. A peppy dance number.

Glamour queen Rekha starred opposite Dr.Rajkumar in the early Bond film, Operation Jackpotnalli CID 999 (1969).

One of the best television serials Malgudi Days was directed by Shankar Nag. He also directed Swamy later on. Shankar Nag was one of the revolutionary directors of Indian cinema.

Kishan Srikanth is the youngest to direct a full feature length film in the history of world cinema. He was 10 years old when he directed C/o Footpath in 2006. The guinness record still stays to be under his name.

Rajinikanth debuted in Kannada films first before migrating to Tamil films. The most popular bus conductor in Karnataka is Rajinikanth & the most popular auto driver is Shankar Nag. They're gods for them. Although Rajini did work as bus conductor, Shankar Nag became famous because of his role in the blockbuster film Auto Raja.

Last one & my favorite, it seems a lot of engineers have turned actors in Kannada film industry. For example, Sudeep, Ramesh Aravind who both are mechanical engineers.

Add Lucia to the list!.... It is the first crowd funded movie... It blew my mind......

by Second Unit Director (77.7k points)
It's the first crowd funded film for Kannada industry, not Indian film industry so didn't add it. Plus I made a mistake of not adding Pushpaka Vimana of Kamal Hassan. I was thinking of maximum characters & I missed it. Will try to post it in part 3.
