TIRUPATI: A life-size statue of well-known theatre and film actor Chittoor V. Nagaiah will soon dot a prominent junction in Tirupati.

When `Rangasthala Kalakarula Aikya Vedika', a forum of theatre artistes, came up with the proposal for the statue, local MLA M. Venkataramana, himself an actor, gave Rs.25,000 from his side. Handing over the cheque to Vedika's vice-president M. Kodandapani Reddy and general secretary K. N. Natarajan here on Monday, he recalled Nagaiah's contribution in the production of several mythological films.
