A shrine for late actor Dr Vishnuvardhan will come up near the memorial being built for him at the Abhimaan Studio near Kengeri. A life-size bronze statue of the actor will be installed there on his first death anniversary on December 30. Producer Krishna prajwal who made Aptharakshaka is the man behind this project. He is already on the lookout for sculptors to make the statue.
Bharati Vishnuvardhan has given her consent for installing the statue. It was her idea that thestatue should be life-size and not a bust. However it has not yet been decided on the looks of the statue. If it will be modelled on his younger days or whether it would be his looks from any film or otherwise has to be decided. Bharati Vishnuvardhan is likely to decide on this in a few days.
The cost for this project would easily run into crores. But Krishnaprajwal is not worried about this. He has told close aides that would spare no cost for this project. He produced Vishnuvardhan's last film Aptharakshaka which is turning out to be one of the biggest hits in Sandalwood in recent times.
