As Amitabh Bachchan’s Sarkar 3 hit the screens on Friday, the All Bengal Amitabh Bachchan Fans’ Association installed a life-size statue of the veteran actor at a temple in Kolkata.

The fibre-glass statue is reportedly worth $1,500, according to DNA.

A large number of fans showed up at the ceremony, dressed as Subhash Nagre [Bachchan’ character in the movie], to unveil the sculpture.

“We have installed the 25kg statue at a temple dedicated to Bachchan after offering prayers for his film’s success,” ABFA state secretary Sanjay Patodiya said.

“The six-feet-two-inches tall is a bit higher than the actual height of the Shahenshah. We did it to make it visually appealing.”
