It has been seven long years since actor Dr Vishnuvardhan died. Some controversy or the other crops up when it comes to his memorial . The family members want it to be in Mysuru but the government is adamant in keeping it in Bengaluru at Kanteerava studio.
Now it is finally decided to shift the memorial to Mysuru after much struggle by his family and well wishers.
“Five acres of land has been granted in Mysuru for the memorial of Vishnuvardhan and the papers are already in the hands of Bharati Vishnuvardhan,” said Anirudh, who is the son-in-law of Vishnuvardhan.
He also said that they have decided not to offer prayers at the Vishnu memorial today, on the occasion of Vishnuvardhan’s birthday.
“Vishnu Seva Samithi, as a routine, has decided to celebrate his birthday by donating blood and distributing food to the poor,” he added.
“The work for the memorial will start in the next four months and it has also been decided to conduct international architectures’ competition and the winners will get the opportunity to build Vishnu’s memorial,” he said.
