Did you know that the Kannada film industry is also called Sandalwood? After Hindi cinema adapted the name “Bollywood” to imitate Hollywood, most of the other segments of Indian cinema followed suit. Telugu cinema was nicknamed Tollywood, Tamil cinema Kollywood, and Kannada cinema adapted the name Sandalwood. The 1973 Kannada movie, Gandhada Gudi, is credited for popularizing the sobriquet. In the movie, the iconic actor Rajkumar sang “Naavaaduva Nudiye,” which states that Kannada land is home to sandalwood. Karnataka, the state where Kannada is predominantly spoken, is known for its sandalwood trees. In fact, the state recognizes sandalwood as its official tree. In recent years, the English term Sandalwood has been replaced by its counterpart in Kannada, Chandanavana.
Sandalwood is the fifth largest Indian film industry, after the industries for Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam. Based in Bangalore, the capital of Karnataka, Sandalwood caters to the Kannadigas (the Kannada people) through 1000 screens all over the state. The first Kannada movie with audible dialogue, Sati Sulochana, was released in 1934. It is considered to be a lost film, as no copies of it survived. Sandalwood has also produced renowned actors such as Vishnuvardhan, the “Phoenix of Indian Cinema,” and Rajkumar, affectionately dubbed as the “Emperor of Actors” in India.
