  • Sudeep Demands Both Memorial and Samadhi for Vishnuvardhan

    Sudeep has come out in the open to sort out the long pending issue over the  Vishnuvardhan memorial. Why did Sudeep meet the chief minister yesterday? What is his stand on the issue? Why did he take a stand now? What are his demands? These are some of the questions bugging fans. Here is the real story of why Sudeep has come out in the open. 

    Firstly the Vishnuvardhan memorial has become embroiled in controversy. Vishnuvardhan was cremated at the Abhiman Studio which was founded by late actor Balakrishna. It may be recalled that it was Sudeep who got built a memorial for Balakrishna in the same place some years ago. Balakrishna's samadhi was an open grave which was given a decent place by the efforts of Sudeep.


    When Vishnuvardhan was cremated at the studio premises after his death a memorial was promised at the same place. But over the years many controversies have cropped up mainly because of the dispute over the land. The land was granted by the government but some of it has been sold to private parties. The surrounding land is forest land and cannot be used for other purposes. After much delay and controversy a memorial work has started in Mysuru. Vishnuvardhan was cremated in Abhiman Studio in Bengaluru but the memorial is coming up in Mysuru. This has upset many fans. The family of Vishnuvardhan have consented to the memorial in Mysuru because the government has said that it is impossible to build the memorial at the studio. 

    This is why Sudeep had to intervene. There was tremendous pressure on him from the fans of Vishnuvardhan to intervene in the matter and force the government to let the samadhi remain in Abhiman Studio.

    Sources said that in the meeting with Siddaramaiah, Sudeep has categorically said that he supported the wish of Bharati Vishnuvardhan for a memorial in Mysuru. But at the same time the samadhi in Abhiman Studio must not be shifted as it is a Punya Bhoomi. A proper samadhi should be built at Abhiman Studio. The government should solve the legal dispute and fans are not asking for any money. They are ready to fund the samadhi at Abhiman Studio themselves. 

    Sudeep supports both the Samadhi at the Studio and the memorial at Mysuru. He requested the CM to speed up the work on both of them.
