Karnataka Man Celebrates House Warming Ceremony With Late Wife’s Silicon Wax Statue, Emotional Twitter Says ‘This Is True Love’
When the dream house was completed, Gupta wanted to make sure that his wife is present with him at one of the most significant moments in his life.
Proving that ‘true love never dies’, Srinivas Gupta, a Karnataka-based businessman surprised everyone after he installed a silicone wax statue of his late wife at his newly-constructed home on the occasion of housewarming ceremony, in her memory.
In 2017, MVK Madhavi, his wife was travelling to Tirupati with their two daughters when she met with a fatal car accident. Though her daughter’s sustained minor injuries, Madhavi couldn’t survive. While she was alive, it was Madhavi’s dream to own a bungalow, and hence Srinivas decided to construct a house in her memory before two years.
When the dream house was completed, Gupta wanted to make sure that his wife is present with him at one of the most significant moments in his life. The videos and pictures of their housewarming celebrations have gone viral on social media and netizens are amazed by this heartwarming story of his tribute to his wife:

”It is a great feeling to have my wife again at my home, as this was her dream home. An artist Shreedhar Murthy from Bengaluru took a year to prepare my wife’s statue. Silicon was used for the statue for durability,” said Shrinivas Gupta on installing silicon statue of his deceased wife.
“Our artist suggested me to have silicon statue instead of the wax statue as we live in Koppal which is a hot place, and an AC cant be open all the time to maintain the wax. So as per the suggestion, we got the silicon statue prepared,” Gupta added.
This grand gesture of everlasting love has moved the hearts of netizens and made them emotional. One user wrote, ”So much of love. Felt emotional. It may be a statue for world but for him she is right there present with him. Brilliant creation. Talking about talent, no one can beat Indians.”

People were also mighty impressed with the skill and creativity of the artist for creating the life-size statue, saying that it looked so real. Many even compared it with the wax statues of UK’s Madame Tussauds museum

लगता है कि अभी उठ कर सबसे बात करेंगी,
वैसे हो न हो रात में या अकेले में कुछ महसूस जरूर करेंगे परिवार के लोग

The sculptor must be an ex employee of Madame Tussauds and started his own startup. Absolute Brilliance 🙏
