Waxed Indian Stars at Madame Tussauds..

Madame Tussauds, which honours celebs from 
all over the world by having their wax statues 
made, has seen a select few elites of Bollywood in
 the museum. Here are the Bollywood stars who 
have got waxed at Madame Tussauds.


1. Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan was the first Bollywood actor to have a wax statue at Madame Tussauds and seeing the heights he has achieved in his long career, it is not hard to guess why. In fact, Bachchan was the first Asian to have been immortalised in wax. His statues are in London, New York and Hong Kong.

2. Aishwarya Rai

Aishwarya Rai became the sixth Indian and the second Bollywood celebrity to get the honour in 2004. The statue is dressed in a heavily embroidered red crepe chiffon sari wearing a kundan set. Ash also became the first Indian celebrity to have her wax model displayed at the Madame Tussauds Museum in the historic Times Square in New York.

3. Shah Rukh Khan

It was in 2007 that a life-size wax statue of Shah Rukh Khan was installed at Madame Tussauds. He followed the footsteps of two of the most recognisable Indian stars at the global front.

4. Salman Khan

If SRK could have his wax statue made, how could Salman be left behind? The very next year,Salman Khan became the fourth Indian star to have a wax replica of him at Madame Tussauds. Though Salman and Aishwarya could not be together in real life, they will always by each other's side at the British museum.

5. Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan was the last Bollywood star to get waxed at the museum. He unveiled his wax statue early this year. The wax replica payed homage to one of his most admired roles viz. 'Dhoom 2'. He is the youngest Indian actor, till date, to have his waxwork at Madame Tussauds. 
6. Kareena kapoor

An icon in the world of Bollywood cinema, Kareena Kapoor has joined fellow Indian film stars here at Madame Tussauds London, as her wax figure pays a visit to our world famous attraction for the first time.
Created in 2011 by a team of sculptors, hair, makeup and wardrobe experts, Kareena’s figure has been travelling the globe in a new Bollywood exhibition, which has visited a number of our attractions around the world. 
Arriving in London, Kareena’s wax likeness is in good company here at the attraction, joining some of the biggest names in Indian cinema, including Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachan in a special Bollywood-inspired area.
On seeing her wax figure for the first time in 2011, Kareena said: “It is an honour and a privilege for me to have my own Madame Tussauds wax figure - this is a moment of pride for Indian cinema.
“The figure looks incredible and is so life like, I had to do a double take when I saw myself – they have really done a superb job at capturing my essence,” Kareena added. 
Fan, Amil Singh, aged 24 from Birmingham on meeting Kareena’s figure commented: “Her figure is amazing – so glamorous just like the real Kareena. The whole Bollywood experience is magical and a real must see for all, whether they are Bollywood fans or not!”

7. Madhuri Dixit



"I am thrilled to be here in Madame Tussauds unveiling a wax figure of myself. It's incredible just how detailed the figure is - they have captured my look beautifully! I feel very humbled to be included alongside other Bollywood stars and some of my personal heroes," Madhuri said in a statement on the museum's official website.

These are photographs of the wax figures of ex-Prime Minister of India Indira Gandhi, and the 
spiritual leader of India Mahatma Gandhi who led India to freedom from the British in 1947. 
These two people are leaders of India from different times in history and play very different 
roles but at the 200 year old museum in London, they stand side by side.

It was surprising to see Indira Gandhi's dark brown complexion on her wax figure as I assumed 

that these wax figures were meant to be life-like. I have seen Indira Gandhi in person and so have hundreds of Indians. She had a milky white complexion due to her Kashimiri heritage. I guess the 
English think that all Indians have a similar dark brown complexion, failing to take into account 
the various different shades that we all are. Colour wouldn't matter except for the fact that the 
museum boasts of life-like wax sculptures. If they are not meant to have the same colour as in 
real life then why not paint everyone a dark brown?
