"In the future people might think that I am exaggerating out of nostalgia. So I put it on record ....It is going to be very difficult for the film industry to produce another talent like Mr. K. Vishwanath. But we must try, as it is the burden of that duty endowed upon us by masters like K. Viswanath. Bravo sir.”said Kamal.
Mr.Hassan was one of the committee member to select the filmmaker for the honour.
"It is only when one becomes a part of a committee selecting the recipient of such an honor like Dada Saheb award that you realize how abundantly rich in talent our Indian film industry is. "We had many deserving names but four out of the five members in the committee unanimously came up with number one choice as K. Vishwanath. The fifth also had Mr K. Vishwanath in her list but not as first choice," Kamal said
Adding further "In my view the choice was unanimous. The committee felt humbled. The proof of Mr. K.V's achievement was overwhelming. I am proud to be part of that committee which selected K.V. and also very proud to be part of the fraternity that has given us such a brilliant filmmaker. There isn't enough governmental or private honours in the country to honour the deserving of the Industry," said the south superstar.
