Choreographer-turned-filmmaker Raghava Lawrence has built a temple for his mother as a mark of respect, gratitude and love for her. The director of films like Mass, Style, Kanchana and Rebel has built temple near Chennai. More details regarding this are awaited.
However, this is not first time that Lawrence has built a temple. Earlier he built temple for Raghavendra Swamy at Thirumullaivayal on the Avadi-Ambattur route. Lawrence had brain tumor when he was a child and rarely been to school. He only got cured after his mother went to a temple of Raghavendra Swami and Lawrence strongly believes that it was Raghavendra Swami who cured him of his tumour. Since then, he became an ardent devotee of the deity and added Raghava to his name.
Building temples is not new trend for people of Tamil Nadu. It has been there for a while. Especially fans have built temple for Khushboo, Namita etc. But building a temple for mother is definitely bolt out of the blue and a director like Raghava Lawrence doing it brings lot of attention.
