Siblings Jaggesh and Komal Kumar very popular in the Kannada film front are independent in their films. Senior brother Jaggesh has put in three decades stint while his brother Komal Kumar has put in over two decades experience. Jaggesh has grown up in the political field and acted in over 135 films. He also holds a position in the Karnataka Road Transport Corporation as Vice President and besides that the MLC position.
Komal Kumar feeling happy with such developments of his brother in the cinema and political life says the due share has not come to my brother as expected.
We had 500 acres of land and hope of my father was that Jaggesh would maintain and prosper it. He moved to cinema and that would have been something marvelous today. Coming to cinema and joining politics Jaggesh missed the opportunity of reaching the cabinet rank of ministry. He was very strong in Congress-I. He was deceived the MLA ticket at the last minute. He came out from the party for nothing in BJP but after sometime he was recognized for MLC and a position in KSRTC.
My brother did not go behind money. He always maintained the one point of agenda of doing well for people. He never goes behind publicity. His popularity in cinema is so high that he need have to go behind it says Komal Kumar on his brother Jaggesh.
I have seen many incidents his heart melting to the worries and problems of the people who come near to our house. He arranged for Rs.1.50 lakh funds and from his hand gave Rs.50000. In cinema also his contribution and spot improvement is staggering. But others take credit. Komal Kumar gives the example of 'Mata'.
He has wasted much of his time in the last 50 years. Let him not do it here afterwards says Komal Kumar. Jaggesh sitting next to his brother and hearing him patiently nods his head - my brother is correct.
