Unfortunately, neither Appu’s fans nor the public can directly participate in the event, the Chamber of Commerce clarified.
Program passes in great demand:
As per the organizers, a maximum of 2,000 people can attend the event. However, more than 26,000 requests for the passes have been received from the Kannada cinema world alone, sources said. There is a huge demand for the program pass from film artists, producers, technicians, workers, and members of the chamber of commerce.
However, the event organizers said they can admit only 2,000 dignitaries to the event due to regulations.
