BANGALORE: Members of the Karnataka Television Association (KTA) yesterday attacked the Zee Kannada offices located just off the busy MG Road in the Garden City.
The KTA was protesting against the telecast of footage of the Hindi television serial ‘Jhansi Ki Rani’ on Zee Kannada. A few television sets and computers were damaged in the attack.
The KTA contends that dubbing of a programme made in other languages robs job opportunities of local artistes. According to the Association, Zee South Head Gautham Machaiah and Fiction Head Parameshwara Gundkal had been requested not to air the programme.
Dubbing, though legally not banned, is not practised in Kannada films and television on mutual understanding.Zee Kannada said that it had aired a one-hour show based on the Rani of Jhansi as part of its Independence Day programming using Hindi footage and a commentary by a reputed Kannada artiste. It further said that the characters of the serial spoke in Hindi and the channel ran Kannada sub-titles.
