Shruthi Hassan, who was quite active in South Indian film industry finalized that she didn’t sign any Kannada movies in the recent times and doesn’t sign in future too. This is not just the case with Shruthi Hassan but with several Kollywood actors. It is known that stars like Satyaraj faced tough times in Kannada film industry. Even Rajamouli’s “Bahubali 2” which was released worldwide, encountered tough time in Kannada.
All this is focusing the fact that the Kollywood film actors and few of the Telugu film stars were ignoring Kannada film industry, which is another growing industry in South India. Currently, Tollywood and Kollywood are competing for the No.1 position in South India. Transfer of actors between these two film industries was happening from long time and the actors were helping other regional film industries like Mollywood and Kannada film industry to grow ahead in the competition. With the recent tiff between Tamil Nadu and Kannada, the industries were getting isolated from one another.
