Kishore Kumar was recently seen in Mani Ratnam’s epic drama Ponniyin Selvan 2.
Kishore Kumar made his film debut in 2004 with the film Kannada Kanti directed by debutant S Bharath.
Kannada actor Kishore Kumar Huli is one of the popular names in the southern film industry. He has worked in Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu films. He gained huge popularity after portraying the role of Veerappan in the Kannada film Attahasa in 2013. However, recently Kishore also gained pan-Indian recognition for his outstanding performance in The Family Man TV series, Ponniyin Selvan franchise and Kantara. Apart from his outstanding acting talent, the actor is also known for his outspokenness.
Recently, the actor in an Instagram post denounced Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) over the pollution of freshwater lake Devarakere. Sharing a video of the lake, he captioned “Killing a lake by BBMP-Devarakere”.
The video clip showed polluted water being released into the lake. Sharing the clip, Kishore wrote, “Devarakere is a 1000-year-old freshwater lake in southern Bengaluru which dates back to the Hoysala period by the Archaeological Survey of India. Devarakere was once a peaceful, self-contained freshwater ecosystem as long as it belonged to the Forestry Department. It was handed over to the BBMP about 10 years ago.
“And the BBMP on behalf of development took less than 5 years to kill the lake with unwanted ‘development’ contract work spending millions of taxpayer dollars connecting sewers to storm sewers. Are we ready to lose a lake more for the benefit of so-called development? Or will we stand up, question and urge those responsible to act before it’s too late,” the actor asked.
Seeing the video, viewers appreciated it for raising a vital question. One of the users commented, “The trick is being used all over India, just to increase the sale of aqua water machines.” Another wrote: “We must be relentless as developers to protect what is left. Thanks for the awareness.”
“Pollution control authorities should act on this problem sir but no one is ready to protect nature”, reacted a third user.
Professionally, Kishore made his film debut in 2004 with the film Kannada Kanti directed by debutant S. Bharath. The film starred Murali and Ramya in the lead roles. Over the years, Koshore has made a name for himself in the Southern industry, primarily for his roles as antagonists. He was recently seen in Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus, Ponniyin Selvan 2.
