Bangalore | Thursday, Dec 17 2009 IST
Noted Film Director Chandulal Jain died of bone cancer here today.
He was 75. He is survived by his wife, two daughters and two sons.
Mr Jain, who had directed more than 37 films, was responsible for introducing Rajnikanth and Kamalhassan to Kannada film land.
Kannada Film Producers Association President K C N Chandrashekhar, condoling the death, said Mr Jain's death had created a big void in the industry. ''When the association had just moved to a new spacious building recently, I had spoken to him. ''The producers need guidance from such experienced persons who have contributed to the growth of the industry. ''Chandulal's death is an unbearable loss to the industry. He has succumbed to death when we we are feeling that he is slowly recovering from his sickness,'' he added. Producer Sa Ra Govindu remembered Mr Jain as a golden-hearted person. ''He made films with lot of conviction and encouraged some unrecognised talents. You need guts to produce films like 'Tabbaliyu Neenade Magane' and 'Gangavva Gangamaayi'. "But Jain took that risk as he was committed to making good films.
"He did lose money in these projects, but he was always telling that he remained proud to have taken such projects.''
