Like the Pune Film School, to set up a film institute in the name of K. Vishwanath in Hyderabad.
Everyone says that Vishwanath is the director in the industry who can tell a great story. Even after he stopped doing films, he remained like a true artist. To bless everyone.. If someone does a great job, they appreciate and enjoy it. LB Sriram revealed that no matter what soil you smell, it’s like his perfume.
“Once upon a time Telugu cinema was a situation where we could not talk about ourselves. Today we are very high. Telugu cinema is at a level to be proud of. The whole world is watching us. In this case we should governmentally name awards like Dadasaheb Phalke in his name. The State Governments and the Central Government should take the initiative and give State Awards and National Award in the name of K. Vishwanath. Government should set up a film institute in Hyderabad like Pune institute. Also, a scene from K. Vishwanath’s movie should be taught in every diploma college,” said LB Sriram.
