After waxing-eloquent on her porcelain-perfect beauty for so many years, the world will finally get to see Bollywood star Madhuri Dixit Nene, up-close and personal at Madame Tussauds in London.
Madhuri is the next Bollywood icon – after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor – to be honoured with a life-like statue of herself.
Speaking to her fans on Twitter, Madhuri says, “Madame Tussaud’s made the announcement and I am confirming it. Will be in London in March to introduce my likeness! Thanks for all your support”*
Apparently, the statue will be draped in a custom-made Manish Malhotra saree and will cost approximately £1,50,000/- to create. A huge team of make-up artists, stylists and hair experts will take four months to create the statue.
In a press statement, the people at Madame Tussauds said, “The decision to include Madhuri is set to delight Bollywood fans around the world as we are constantly inundated with requests to feature Madhuri. Her figure will make a stunning new addition to our Bollywood area which continues to grow in popularity every year.”
