At last, Vishnu memorial sees light

After a series of pendulum swing over the memorial of Kannada cine idol Dr Vishnuvardhan, the happy news of the foundation stone laying ceremony for the memorial has come to the fans of Sahasa Simha. The date has been announced for the foundation-stone laying, and it will be held on December 6 on a 5-acre land allotted for the memorial on Manadawadi road.

The memorial which was earlier proposed to be built at the Abhiman studio, Bengaluru, was shifted to the hometown of Vishnu, Mysuru, due to land disputes. The memorial was planned to be constructed at a farmland on Manandawadi road, to which the family of the land owners opposed as they were cultivating the farm.

After having a meeting with the family of the farmer, Mysuru Deputy Commissioner D Randeep confirmed the date of the ceremony. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will lay the foundation stone. President of the Vishnuvardhan Memorial Trust, Bharati Vishnuvardhan, family members, Sandalwood actors, technicians, political leaders and fans are expected to grace the occasion on December 6.
