MNA Entertainment Desk: In a tribute to late Bollywood actor Sridevi, the Swiss tourism industry is planning to install a statue of the legendary leading lady, reported news agency.
Sridevi was one of the Bollywood actors who set a trend by being picturized in the snowy alps of Switzerland in the 80s and 90s.
From Raj Kapoor’s Sangam in 1964 to Aditya Chopra’s Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (DDLJ), Switzerland has been a favourite shooting location for Bollywood and Indian tourists have been flocking to the country in the hundreds of thousands.
Late filmmaker Yash Chopra was famously very fond of the snowy country and his films became associated with Switzerland.
A majority of the iconic songs of Chopra’s 1989 Sridevi-starrer Chandni were shot in Switzerland. He was made honorary Ambassador of the town of Interlaken in 2011 along with having a statue and a train named after him.
