Sridevi may have started her journey from the South Indian cinema but she was undoubtedly an international star. From Hollywood to Switzerland, she's been approached for work and loved by all. So much so that Switzerland authorities are now planning to install the statue of the Judaai actor. The country remembers her well as Sridevi's superhit film Chandni was shot in Switzerland.
However, Sridevi isn't the only celebrity Switzerland is honouring. Many of Yash Chopra's films featured Switzerland in their storyline, hence, the Indian filmmaker's statue was unveiled in Interlaken in 2016. A senior official familiar 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."
"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. The government of Interlaken had also awarded the honorary title of Ambassador of Interlaken to Yash Chopra in 2011," he added.
Sridevi, whose sudden demise at 55 in Dubai shocked the country, will now be honoured with a statue in Bern, Switzerland. Along with other fans, we also wish this beauty was still here to witness the love, peace and success her daughters are receiving at the moment.
