The Switzerland authorities are deciding to install a statue of Bollywood veteran actress Sridevi.
Veteran actress Sridevi’s blockbuster movie ‘Chandni’ was shot at the country’s location. The 1989’s ‘Chandni’ almost half the songs were filmed on the centre stage of Switzerland and dance sequences in the film had the Swiss backdrop.
According to PTI reports, a senior official with the development stated that “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 senior official also added that, “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.”
Since 1964, Bollywood makes the favorite list for shooting location where Switzerland comes first in position. From the Raj Kapoor’s ‘Sangam’ to Yash Chopra’s last film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ the shooting spot was Switzerland.
