The project had been greatly delayed because of some illegal issues with the land.Now, we hear the hurdles have been cleared. Vishnu's actress wife Bharathi Vishnuvardhan recently met Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa asking him to speed up the memorial works. Now with all the issues cleared, the land is ready for construction of Vishnuvardhan memorial which will come up at the HD Fort road in Mysuru.
The foundation will be laid soon and this news will certainly make the fans of the actor happy.
