Deepika Padukone to get wax statue at Madame Tussauds Museum
Deepika Padukone is going to be a next Bollywood star to get a wax statue at Madame Tussauds Museum in London. Stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Aishwaya Rai, Kareena Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Anil Kapoor, and Madhuri Dixit have already got a wax statue at the popular museum.
“It’s fun, exciting and in a way I feel a lot of gratitude because you know when you give your fans a little more than just the movies, then it’s really, really special. I hope they enjoy it as much as we enjoy creating it,” Deepika said in the announcement video.“The only time I visited Madame Tussauds was in London when I was very little with my parents. That memory has sort of stayed with me, obviously. And then to receive a letter and now to be a part of that, and to actually experience what goes into making these wax figures. I think Madame Tussauds is so iconic in so many ways so it’s really special,” she said. Deepika’s fan club even posted the picture for the initial process of her statue being made. The picture reveals samples of eyes that might end up on the actress’ statue. She is currently in London for the measurements. Her statue will be placed in the A-list category. Asked whom she’d like her statue to be placed next to, she said to be placed near some fun people to have their own little party there.
