Giving details about the new project of the film land's first family, Mr. Raghavendra Raj Kumar said that they have now fulfilled the desire of their father to build a hotel which could deliver homely comforts. He added that the piece of land had been bought a few years ago.
'The original idea in the family was to have some film related infrastructure. But it was changed two years ago after Puneeth had advised that we build a Hotel instead in this place. Appaaji also blessed this idea and even our uncle Varadaraj had approved our idea.
Many a times when my father was fit he would come in a car and then see how the building was taking shape. We have taken sixteen months to construct this hotel which has 51 fully equipped rooms, centralized air condition facility and Hi Fi communication facility. Any guest can have access to his internet just sleeping or sitting in a room. This hotel will have a conference room named as matinee idol and a multi cuisine restaurant in the name of thespian.' said Raghavendra Raj Kumar. He said though the final cost details are not available, the fully equipped hotel may have an estimated expenditure of around Rs. 5 crores.
Raghavendra Raj Kumar also said that they have plans to build a high tech modern hotel of much bigger size in Mysore for which plans are underway. Shivaraj Kumar, Puneet Raj Kumar and the architects of the Hotel were present.
