Earlier, fans have built shrines for several Tamil and Telugu
actresses. So far nobody has raised a temple for an actor. For the
first time in the history of Indian Cinema, a temple is now being
built for an actor. Do you know who is he? He is none other than
the our Sahasa Simha late Dr. Vishnuvardhan. Krishna
Prajwal, who had produced his last movie Aaptha Rakshaka,
has planned to do this adventure.
The Karnataka Government had announced to set up Dr.
Vishnuvardhan's memorial at the Abhimaan Studio near Kengeri
earlier this year. Now producer Krishna Prajwal has decided to
build a shrine for the late Kannada near the memorial. A life-size
bronze statue of the actor will be installed there on his first
death anniversary on December 30.
Presently, producer Krishna Prajwal is on the lookout for
sculptors to make the statue. It is said that this project would
cost him crores together, but he is not worried about it. However,
he is bit confused about the looks of the statue. He is yet to
decide on whether it will be modelled on his younger days or on the
looks from any of his film.
Meanwhile, He is also said to have contacted Bharathi
Vishnuvardhan and she has given her consent for installing the
statue. She has suggested him that the statue should be life-size
and not a bust. She is likely to decide on the look of the statue
in a few days.
