A 57-year-old businessman Srinivas Murthy from Karnataka’s Koppal has won the hearts of netizens, as he has installed a silicone statue of his late wife at his newly-constructed home, in memory of her. Photos from his housewarming ceremony with his wife’s wax statue have gone viral.
On August 8, guests who came for the housewarming ceremony at Srinivas Murthy’s residence were stunned seeing a life-like statue of his late wife Madhavi. Srinivas Murthy wanted to do something special for his wife who died three years ago in a car accident. Three years ago, MVK Madhavi met with a fatal accident while travelling to Tirupati with their two daughters.
While Madhavi died, their daughters sustained minor injuries recovered. It was Srinivas Murthy’s wife Madhavi’s dream to own a bungalow, and hence he decided to construct a house in her memory before two years.
Over a year ago, he had travelled to Gadag on business. Srinivas, who runs a business exporting hair, heard from one of his vendors about an architect named Mahesh Rangannadavaru. Mahesh suggested that a life-size statue of Madhavi be installed in the foyer adjacent to the living room of the new house.
The architect suggested that Srinivas hire the services of Gombe Mane, popular toymakers in Bengaluru city. “Mahesh told me that Gombe Mane had also done some work for Tontadarya Mutt in Gadag. I don’t regret it at all. This is the kind of gesture I was looking for. I placed the order about a year ago. I gave them several pictures of my wife. She looks so real,” Srinivas marvelled.
