The long-pending unveiling of the statue of Dr Rajkumar at the Rajajinagar Entrance has been done. The statue of Rajkumar in the style of Sri Krishnadeva Raya was constructed by Karnataka Rakshana Vedike and its inauguration was pending for the last few years. The statue is installed near the entrance to the Rajajinagar area from the Majestic side on the grade separator on Dr Rajkumar Road.
Rajkumar's daughter Lakshmi was present at the unveiling along with KRV Chief Narayan Gowda, local dignitaries including Abhimani T Venkatesh, educationist Balakrishna and others. The tribute to Rajkumar was planned 10 years ago and was also completed early. But due to various bureaucratic red tape, it was stuck.
The statue resembles Rajkumar from his role in the film Sri Krishnadeva Raya.
