An Andhra Pradeshi artist named Kuppam creates a drawing of Hanuman on the occasion of Chaitra Navratri

Across the nation, people celebrate the Hindu holiday of Chaitra Navratri, which spans nine days, with vigor, fervor, grandeur, and passion. Devotees adore Maa Durga in her nine guises and fast for these nine days. This year, the nine-day celebration comes to an end today, April 17, with the celebration of Ram Navami. In the meanwhile, Kuppam, in the Andhra Pradesh district of Chittoor, is home to an artist who is becoming well-known for his works.

The artist is called Purushottam, and he creates a variety of paintings and drawings. Taking images of well-known individuals who have benefited the public is his area of expertise.

He drew a massive picture of Hanuman that was twenty feet wide by twenty feet high and put it amid the fields for the special Navratri celebrations. The image took almost two days to paint.

Purushottam said in a media interview that he was inspired to do this by the superhero movie Hanu-Man, which was helmed by Prasanth Varma. He also sent his best wishes on Sri Ram Navami.

Teja Sajja plays the titular character in Hanu-Man, while Amritha Aiyer plays the major female part. Other notable supporting cast members include Raj Deepak Shetty, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Samuthirakani, Vinay Rai, and Vennela Kishore.

The film centers on Hanumanthu, who uses Lord Hanuman’s strength to help the Anjanadri people, and battles Michael after coming into touch with an enigmatic gem.

On January 12, 2024, Hanu-Man was released in honor of Sankranti and garnered favorable reviews from reviewers. With a box office receipt of almost Rs 330 crore, the movie shattered many records and became the highest-grossing Telugu film of 2024.

Still, a lot of different work ends up being popular online. A forty-year-old artist and teacher from Odisha created a miniature of the Ram temple prior to the dedication ceremony on January 22 in Ayodhya.

Eshwar Rao was the artist’s name. Using paper, a matchstick, and chalk, he created the duplicate.

The model was five and a half inches high by two and a half inches broad, according to the report. There is also a one-inch-tall statue of Lord Hanuman in front of the temple. Clay is used to create the figurine. He spent seven days crafting this little Ram temple.
