  1. This is great news. Will be interesting to hear what he speaks. Just hope this does not follow the current trend of Cancelled events akin to KK and Sunidhi.

    • Hi Anvith,
      I think, we need to appreciate the sincere efforts by GIT for getting celebrities like Chetan Bhagat, Subroto Bagchi, Javagal Shrinath, Sayed Kirmani and few more to Belgaum. KK’s show was great. We enjoyed. Don know, how you missed it.
      Always, the cancellations do take place for the reasons beyond control like flight issues, weather etc.
      I think, we Belgaum people and students must compliment GIT for there bold efforts to get such great personalities in-spite of many odds.

      Best wishes GIT.

      • Nishant, It wasn’t a barb at GIT, or at anyone in particular. No offence meant. Just made an observation that in the past whenever a person associated with the film industry was supposed to be here, in Belgaum, there have been cancellations or delays for frivolous reasons.
