Chennai: Actor-filmmaker Raghava Lawrence, who is currently busy with Tamil films "Muni 3" and "Oru Ticketil Rendu Cinema", has decided to build a temple for his mother in his father's hometown Poovirundhavali in Tamil Nadu.
The work on the temple has started and will be completed by next year.
"It's been my dream to build a temple for my mother Kanmani while she's alive. I'm in this world because of my mother. I dedicate this temple to all mothers, who have sacrificed their life for their kids," Lawrence told IANS.
"My mother's statue is being made in Rajasthan. The temple should be completed by next year and I plan to have a grand opening ceremony," he added.
Lawrence also plans to write a book about his upbringing by his mother, who struggled to make ends meet.
