On Thursday, October 27, Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor unveiled her wax statue at Madame Tussauds museum in Blackpool.
The wax statue of Kareena Kapoor is a replica of her look from the song “Mauja Hi Mauja” from her blockbuster movie Jab We Met.
Kareena Kapoor was accompanied by her mom Babita for unveiling of the statue. Kareena Kapoor wore a Manish Malhotra sari at the wax statue unveiling function.
“It is an honour and a privilege to have my own wax figure at Madame Tussauds, and even more so to launch a global Bollywood exhibition. This is a moment of pride for Indian cinema,” Kareena said in a statement.
The figure is said to have been sculpted at a cost of 150,000 pounds and it took about 4 months to make this wax statue.
“The figure looks incredible and is so life-like, I did a double take when I saw it myself. They have really done a superb job of capturing my essence,” Kareena said.
The actor also says she got great feedback on Ra.One. “It’s been amazing. This whole back-to-back thing … First Ra.one and then the unveiling.”
Other Bollywood stars whose wax statues are in the museum include likes of Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai.
