On the occasion of Bal Thackeray's 93rd birth anniversary, a Mumbai-based artist made a portrait of the Shiv Sena founder with 33,000 rudrakshas (prayer beads) and was put up in front of Shiv Sena Bhavan, Dadar on Tuesday.


Artist Chetan Raut said that Bal Thackeray had a special relationship with rudraksha, so he wanted this portrait to be made using it. The artist who made up 8 x 8 feet portrait using 33,000 rudrakshas, tried making a world record. He also used rudraksha beads in different shades to give a 3-D effect to the portrait.
