Late Kannada actor Dr. Vishnuvardhan's 'Vaikunta Samaradhana' (a Hindu ritual, which is done after 13 days after death) was held at Dharmastala Manjunatha Kalyana Mantapa Basavangudi in Bangalore on Monday (January 11, 2010). The pooja started at 7.00 am and Vishnu's adopted son Shridhar performed the rituals. Dr Vishnu family offered flowers and conveyed their regards to him.
Bharathi Vishnuvardhan, two adopted daughters and their husbands attended the Pooja. Amidst the chanting of Vedas, Vishnu family held the pooja of Lord Narsimha Swamy, the deity of Vishnu's home. Several film actors, technicians and directors also conveyed their regards to late Dr. Vishnu by offering flowers to his photo.
Thousands of Vishnuvardhan fans from Haasan, Mandya, Mysore and Chitradurga had come to attend the event, but the entry for his fans was prohibited. So the disappointed fans moved to National College ground, where the blood and eye donation camp was organised.
