Director Hemanth Hegde has decided to establish a 62 feet tall statue of Charlie Chaplin in Ottinene near Udupi for Diganth and Girija Oak starrer movie Houseful. After the completion of the statue, a song from the movie will be shot in front of it.
Houseful has already completed the shooting except the songs and is in the post-production. One of those song will be shot before the statue. The director has already got permission for the statue in last October and now art director Chetan Mundadi is preparing blue print of the statue. The statue will be opened on 28 March 2009.
Chaplin standing with a stick in hand is very popular image and the same will be established here. This statue will be the tallest one and is sure to enter the Guinness book of record. David Brown, an official from Guinness Book, will examine the statue and submit the report.
The statue will be established with an amount of 35 crores and will be placed in Ottinene. It will be built by concrete and fibre will be used for the part of face. Do u think that this is a mad adventure of Hemanth?
The director had also tried to bring Navjot Singh Sidhu. Since Sidhu demanded 15 lakhs per day. He had to change his plan and signed in Mumbai TV star Amarjeet Singh for the same.
Let us wait and watch whether the movie will get back its investment!!!
