Statue In Honour Of Sridevi In This Foreign Country!!

It’s still hard to believe she’s gone.

Sridevi Boney Kapoor died on February 24 this year owing at the age of 54 due to a case of accidental drowning in Dubai. Her death left many heartbroken considering she was, despite acting in fewer films, still considered a reigning queen in Indian cinema. Bearing this in mind, Switzerland tourism is reportedly considering building a statue in honour of the late actress.

According to reports, Sridevi’s 1989 film Chandni, a popular Hindi film of hers, was shot in Switzerland and fared very well in the country and popularised it further among the Indians. An official from Switzerland’s tourism said:

“Many of [Yash] 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.”

Sridevi has been honoured posthumously several times including winning a National Award for her performance in Mom, an IIFA award for her performance in the same as well as an honorary mention at Cannes Film Festival. A recent honour was in the form of a mural. For her 55th birth anniversary, designer and artist Ranjit Dahiya had an 18-foot tall mural based on her done in Bandra, Mumbai.
