Taking to Instagram, Shetty revealed that since the day of Pran Pratishtha, he has been craving to see him live and now after over a month, he got the chance to visit the temple. "Since the day of the Prana Pratista, I have been craving to see him live. I find his eyes real and I have zoomed into many pictures of his to see how it can be so realistic,” he wrote.

He further explained his theory as to how the sculptor, who sculpted the idol of Ram Lalla, could have achieved such a realistic portrayal of the eyes using an illusionary effect. Calling himself blessed to witness Ram Lalla in person, he wrote, "Today I got to see him from a distance, as few lucky ones get to. I got to sit before him for almost half an hour and adore him. Have never done this before, in front of any idol in my life. I admire the workmanship of all idols generally, but this adoration felt different." Lauding the culture, he added, "Arun Yogiraj is a living legend who will be remembered for generations."

He concluded the note by thanking his cousins and friends for accompanying him on the trip. "This one was really special. Jai Anjaneya… Jai Sri Ram" read his note.
