MM Keeravaani’s Father’s Oil Paintings Of Gods Stun Anupam Kher; Calls His House A Pilgrimage

Walk into any Indian’s house, and you will surely find at least one picture or idol of any god or goddess that they believe in. Especially when you visit houses in south India, you will find the entire wall adorned with frames of gods and goddesses. People who are not used to such sights might surely mistake the house for a temple. Actor Anupam Kher recently visited MM Keeravani’s house and described it as a pilgrimage. Here’s why!

Music composer MM Keeravaani achieved global recognition with his song “Naatu Naatu” from SS Rajamouli’s epic action film RRR. He bagged the Academy Award for best original song and also a National Film Award for best music direction (background score).

Actor Anupam Kher recently visited MM Keeravani’s house. The actor met the composer’s father, Hon. Shri Shiva Shakta Dutta, and his brother, Dr. K. Rama Krishna. MM Keeravaani’s father is 92 years old, and Anupam described him as an energetic person. 

The walls in the house caught Anupam’s attention as they were adorned with many beautiful paintings featuring Hindu gods and goddesses. He was then told that these paintings were all painted by MM Keeravaani’s father. 

Anupam was completely stunned to learn it. The paintings look very lively and realistic, with special attention to every little detail. From the eyes of the god to the smallest stone in their crown, the paintings looked perfect.

The actor could not stop himself from taking a video of all the paintings in the house. He gave us a house tour by posting the video on his Instagram. The video begins with MM Keeravaani’s father sitting in the drawing room with a huge painting of Lord Vishnu sleeping on his bed of snakes. 

On his right is a huge painting of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi, and the painting on his left features many gods and goddesses together. His father asked him to check another painting behind it, which was a beautiful painting of Lord Krishna. Actor Anupam called it “unbelievable art”. 

Anupam went ahead to capture more of this art in other rooms in the house. MM Keeravaani accompanied him to the Pooja room, which is basically a room dedicated to god and had many paintings and idols of various Hindu gods. 

The room had paintings of Raghavendra Swami, southern goddesses, and also Goddess Kalika. There were some cute portraits of Lord Ganesha as well. Anupam called these paintings “the biggest treasure of life”.

He then came out of the room and roamed around the house, only to see more and more of such stunning paintings. Another painting featured 100 snakes, which are worshipped by South Indians. 

MM Keeravaani took Anupam to another room, which had pictures of his grandfather as well. There were paintings of Lord Ganesha, Lord Hanuman, Shirdi’s Sai Baba, and also Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

Anupam said, “Iss ghar me sabhi bhagwan baste hai dosto,” which means that all the gods reside in this house. To this, MM Keeravaani mentioned that all these paintings made by his father are oil paintings. Towards the end, the composer’s father gifted Anupam with a painting of Lord Venkateshwara and Goddess Padmavati. The actor was overwhelmed as he received it.
