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.
