Bollywood actress Sridevi's sudden demise left the fans in the state of shock. The superstar diva who was off to a family wedding in Dubai, breathed her last after she accidentally drowned in a bath tub. While the fans are still coping up with this huge loss, a heartwarming tribute to the star is already on the way. This tribute will not be seen in India but in Switzerland. According to the latest reports, the Switzerland authorities are likely to install a statue of her here as her super hit film “Chandni” was shot at the country’s serene locations.
As we know that late filmmaker Yash Chopra was known for his movies shot in Switzerland, Chandni was one of them. “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,” a senior official familiar with the development said. Earlier, statue of the Jab Tak Hai Jaan director was unveiled in Interlaken in 2016.
Currently, it is Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol's blockbuster film 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' which is attracting the Indian tourists in Switzerland. The official revealed, "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."
