Switzerland to honour Sridevi with a statue

To honour Sridevi, the authorities of Switzerland are planning to install her statue. Her superhit flick Chandini was shot at the country’s picturesque locations.
 
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.
 
“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,” the official said.
