PM Narendra Modi
Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi, got his own wax statue at Madame Tussauds in London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok in 2012. Striking his most popular pose, wearing his signature (what used to be called) Nehru jacket (which has now become the Modi jacket).
The most iconic symbol of Bollywood cinema, Mr.Amitabh Bachchan went from being the ‘angry young man’ of Bollywood to the experienced, well-nuanced and fine actor that he is today. It is definitely a fitting tribute to have his likeness in wax at the Tussauds. Except that anything that does not produce the same baritone voice that millions of Indians associate to many movies and commercials is simply a smaller than life rendition of the great actor.
In 2009, Tendulkar became the first Indian sportsperson to get his statue at Madame Tussauds in London. The Master Blaster decided to dress up like his statue and unveiled it on his 36th birthday in London.
Miss World and often seen on the list of most beautiful women across the globe, Aishwarya Rai is not just an acclaimed actor from Bollywood but also one of the most powerful celebrities in the world. Married into the Bachchan household, she joined the wax figure of her father-in-law at the Tussauds in 2004. Aishwarya Rai became the first Bollywood actress to get a wax statue in Madame Tussauds, London. The statue now refers to her earlier days in cinema and proves to be a reminder of the glamour and romance of Bollywood.
Among the most successful of actresses in Bollywood, Katrina Kaif surprised everyone in the industry when she bloomed from her less than appreciable appearance in her début movie Boom. Since then the talented lady has come a long way and is now among the leading actors in Bollywood. Her statue at the Tussauds is among the most recent additions under the Bollywood category.
The latest Indian and the very first South Indian actor to get his own statue at Madame Tussauds is the Baahubali star Prabhas. The statue was unveiled last month at the Bangkok museum and the workmanship is so brilliant, you can’t tell whether it’s a statue or a live Prabhas striking his signature pose.
After Dixit’s Bollywood comeback, the original dancing queen also got a lookalike at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London.
Known for his smashing role in Slumdog Millionaire, Kapoor got his wax statue at Madame Tussauds, Singapore two months ago. TBH, his statue looks more like him than he himself does.
