In the passing away of Vishnuvardhan, an era has ended in the Kannada film industry. He strode the Kannada film industry like a colossus for four decades not only as a great actor but as a humble human being. His portrayal of Ramachaari in the movie Nagara Havu is etched in our memories. The film industry has been deprived of one of its last legends.
