If not, the fans have warned of calling for a Bengaluru bandh on December 30. Actor Vishnuvardhan had breathed his last on December 30, 2010. A temporary memorial is in place at Abhiman studio in Bengaluru. Actor Ambareesh had died on November 24, 2018 and the government announced that his memorial would be built next to Dr Rajkumar at Kanteerava Studio. With passing of more than eight years and no memorial for Vishnuvardhan yet, the fans have at last given a deadline to finalise the spot for a memorial.
