Madhuri Dixit to have a statue at Madame Tussauds

And Its Madhuri Dixit next to stand in the London’s Madame Tussads Wax Museum,

According the website of the famed wax musuem, the statue will cost 150,000 pounds to create and will take a team of sculptors, hair, makeup and wardrobe experts four months to create, It reads,

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,

With so many awards to her name and a career spanning over 25 years she undoubtedly deserves her place here and we expect huge interest in the figure when she takes up residence next year!

Madhuri is the perfect combination of Beauty and Art, she has proved herself in Acting and Dancing, she is remembered for her performances in ‘Tezaab’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Sajan’, ‘Beta’, ‘Dil’, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun!’, ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’ and ‘Devdas’.

Madhuri tied the knot in 2002 with Shriram Madhav Nene, a doctor based out in Denver, US. After her marriage she did one film titled ‘Aaja Nachle’ and now settled in Mumbai, she will be taking selected offers to work now on,

Madhuri is excited about the idea of being waxed, She said,

I am really thrilled I am going to be included at Madame Tussauds. It’s a real mark of achievement and to be recognised for one’s art and work. It’s also wonderful to be following in the footsteps of other Bollywood stars and some of my personal heroes!

To ensure authenticity, Madhuri will be closely involved in the creation process, collaborating with the Madame Tussauds team to agree the pose and even donating a Manish Malhotra sari for her figure to wear. Her hair will flow loosely over her shoulders, styled to show off her long tresses to full effect.

Madhuri’s wax figure will join those of five big names from Indian cinema – Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan.
