Sahasa Simha Dr Vishnuvardhan's fans have urged government to honour the actor with Bharat Ratna like Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. The actor's fans have taken to the micro-blogging site Facebook, and started the campaign to draw the attention of government.
Vishnu was also called as 'Karnatakada Karna (Karna of Karnataka)' along with Rebel Star Ambareesh. People, who were influenced with Vishnuvardhan's performance in Naagarahaavu, compared him with Bollywood angry young man Amitabh Bachchan. In his 35 years of his career, he played variety of roles in more than 200 films.
Vishnu's fans claim that he was not just an actor, but was also a singer, cricketer and also a good human being, who has done lot of social service by helping the needy people. Though Dr Vishnuvardhan is no more with us, his contribution for the film industry and society will always be remembered by Kannadiga's.
They also added that Vishnuvardhan has equally struggled to grow to this height in Sandalwood, like how Sachin Tendulkar did in cricket, and also they have their own identity in their respective fields.
