Kannada Actor of the Decade

Ganesh - 'Mungaaru Male' (2006)

Nobody could have predicted that this film, with a TV compere-turned-hero, a flop director and an NRI music director, would change the course of Sandalwood. But Ganesh, Yogaraj Bhatt and Manomurthy went on to create B.O. magic with their 'Mungaaru Male'.

The film was noted for its astounding music, crisp dialogues, neat camera work and wonderful performances by Ganesh and Ananth Nag.
