My husband Ambarish who has just resigned his ministerial position in the Union Cabinet is not interested in films. The reason for this after acting in over 200 films in Kannada is his occupation in public service and politics says his wife Sumalatha in a chat at Basanth Residency at the get together of 'Bhoopathy' Kannada cinema. Sumalatha the yesteryears heroine is rarely found on Kannada screen for lack of appealing roles. She has acted in 'Bhoopathy' as Darshan's mother.
Abhisekh son of the star couple is interested in films? No says Sumalatha.
Sumalatha the charming actress even to this day came to films 20 years ago from 'Ahuthi' Kannada film. She has acted in four languages (Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Tamil) in over 200 films. The only dream in my life that could not fulfill is to act under the direction of S.R.Puttanna Kanagal the doyen of Kannada cinema says Sumalatha.
