Switzerland to honour veteran actress Sridevi with a statue


The Switzerland authorities are planning to install a statue of veteran actor Sridevi, whose hit film Chandni was shot at the country's picturesque locations. It is to be noted that the statue of the renowned Indian filmmaker, Yash Chopra, was unveiled in Interlaken in 2016.

"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.
"The 1989 blockbuster 'Chandni' had also put Switzerland on centre stage as almost half the song and dance sequences in the film had a Swiss backdrop.

Raj Kapoor's 1964 film "Sangam" was the first Indian film shot in Switzerland, which was followed by "An Evening in Paris" in 1967. Since then Bollywood made Switzerland their favourite shooting location paving way to cement the image of the country's alpine scenery as a romantic paradise for Indians.
