Katrina Kaif today became the latest Indian star to join the Bollywood line-up at Madame Tussauds in London.
Kaif unveiled the wax statue and joined the new Bollywood setting as part of the popular wax-work museum’s “15 years of Bollywood” celebration.
After coming face-to-face with her wax model, Kaif said, “This is amazing it does look really like me.” “Our world famous sculptors have worked closely with the Indian film industry over the last decade, and we now have a stellar line-up in a specially created Bollywood area – one of the most popular in the attraction,” Madame Tussauds said in a statement.
The 31-year-old British-Indian actress has become the seventh Bollywood actor to be honoured with a figure at Madame Tussauds London and joins Amitabh Bachchan (2000), Aishwarya Rai (2004), Shah Rukh Khan (2007), Salman Khan (2008), Hrithik Roshan (2011) and Madhuri Dixit-Nene (2012).
Katrina’s figure was created by a team of 20 sculptors and artists over a four-month period, using hundreds of precise measurements taken at a sitting in Mumbai and cost 150,000 pounds to create. -
