LONDON: Madame Tussauds today welcomed award-winning Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit-Nene. Madhuri, famed for her dazzling dancing, was at the world-famous attraction to unveil her stunning new wax figure in front of friends and family.
The star of hit films including Devdas, Dil To Pagal Hai, Beta and M.f Hussain’s Gaja Gamini is the sixth Bollywood celebrity to be honored by Madame Tussauds London and only the second actress following Aishwarya Rai who entered the attraction back in 2004.
On meeting her double for the first time Madhuri commented “It is hard to imagine yourself like this and meeting my wax double today is very surreal, it feels like an out of body experience. I would like to congratulate the team at Madame Tussauds London as they have done a beautiful job!”
Liz Edwards, PR Manager at Madame Tussauds London commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Madhuri (and her family) here today and to be including her figure in our A-list line-up.tting in Mumbai where sculptors captured a catalog of reference photographs and hundreds of precise measurements to create this staggering likeness. Madhuri also donated the exquisite sari her figure is wearing. The figure took four months to make at a cost of £150,000.
