Many fans of late star Vishnuvardhan are upset with the fact that the family members are okay with the idea of shifting the actor's memorial to Mysuru. Fans of Vishnuvardhan including those from the film industry are insisting that the memorial should come up in Bengaluru. Lyricist and director Nagendra Prasad had made his displeasure public and on behalf of fans has urged that the memorial should come up in Bengaluru.
More than five years after the death of Vishnuvardhan his memorial work is still in limbo. The two acres of land near Abhiman Studio that was granted by the government is in legal trouble as some people have complained that it is forest land.
