Mr. Lokesh, the president of the Kadamba Kannada Yuvaka Vedike, has donated the money for creating the statue of Dr. Vishnuvardhan. A sculptor named Shivakumar has evolved it in three months time. Dwarakish was very emotional as he unveiled the statue of his best friend.
However, the first statue of Dr Vishnu was installed at Bellary district in Karnataka. Immediately after the death of the Sahasa Simha star, the government had promised to create a memorial in his name. Although 18 months have passed after the promise, the Vishnu's memorial still remains a dream.
