Switzerland To Install A Statue Of Sridevi In Order To Honor Her

Published

on

Its been over six months when Indian cinema lost a gem. However, people are still not over the loss of Bollywood Legend Sridevi. Sometimes through her pictures and films and sometimes by looking at her daughter Janhvi, people have kept Sridevi alive in their hearts. And now, Switzerland authorities are doing something appreciable to honor the legend.

Sridevi’s superhit film ‘Chandni’ was shot in the picturesque locations of Switzerland. Her films had helped in boosting the tourism of Switzerland that therefore they owe an honor to the actress.

In 2016, the statue of famous filmmaker Yash Chopra was unveiled in Interlaken. A senior official associated with the development said, “Many of Chopra’s films featured Switzerland as a backdrop and he is credited with boosting the popularity of the Alpine nation among Indian tourists. Now, considering Sridevi’s role in promoting tourism here, there is a proposal to honour the actor by having her statue here.”

 

He said, “However, for many Indian tourists visiting the country today, it is Chopra’s 1995 production ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ that is their Swiss point of reference. Interestingly, for the tourists who happen to be cinema fanatics, there is also a provision to arrange Bollywood packaged trips here.”

“Chopra’s last movie as a director- ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ also had Switzerland in its original screenplay however it had to be cancelled due to his sudden demise. There is also a lake which is known as Yash Chopra lake here as he shot many of his scenes at the lake in Lauenensee,” he added.

 

The first Bollywood film shot in Switzerland was Raj Kapoor’s ‘Sangam’ in 1964. The second film was ‘An Evening in Paris’ in 1967. And then it became Bollywood’s favourite shooting location.

In her 50 years of acting career, she gave hit films like Chandni, Nagina, English Vinglish, Mr. India, ChaalBaaz etc. Her last film was ‘Mom’ that released in 2017.
