A 57-year-old Indian widower identified as Srinivasa Gupta who lost his wife in a car accident has reportedly commissioned a lifelike wax statue of his late wife in his room to keep her memory alive.

However, it was gathered that Gupta lost his wife named Madhavi Gupta in a fatal car accident three years ago which also involved the couple’s daughters, who sustained minor injuries.

Prior to her death, she had reportedly dreamed of having a bungalow of her own.

To honour his late wife, Gupta then decided to set out plans to make the bungalow a reality a year after her death.

Furthermore, it was also revealed that Gupta held discussions with 25 architects, and one of them suggested the idea of the life-size statue, which was later constructed in a bungalow in Koppal, in the Indian state of Karnataka.

On August 8, guests honored an invite to the housewarming ceremony at Srinivasa Gupta’s residence and were left stunned at the statue’s striking resemblance to Gupta’s late wife.

‘Everyone was so surprised,’ he said. 

‘They all believed for a few seconds that it could actually be my wife.’

‘I wanted to do something special in memory of my wife. She died three years ago in a car accident,’ Gupta told the publication, adding: ‘This is the kind of gesture I was looking for. I placed the order about a year ago. 

‘I gave them several pictures of my wife. She looks so real.’
