Madhuri, famed for her dazzling dancing, was at the world famous attraction to unveil her stunning new wax figure in front of friends and family.
The star of hit films including Devdas, Dil To Pagal Hai, Beta and M.f Hussain’s Gaja Gamini is the sixth Bollywood celebrity to be honoured by Madame Tussauds London and only the second actress following Aishwarya Rai who entered the attraction back in 2004.
On meeting her double for the first time Madhuri commented “It is hard to imagine yourself like this and meeting my wax double today is very surreal, it feels like an out of body experience. I would like to congratulate the team at Madame Tussauds London as they have done a beautiful job!” Madhuri was completely involved in the creation of her figure, attending a sitting in Mumbai where sculptors captured a catalogue of reference photographs and hundreds of precise measurements to create this staggering likeness Madhuri also donated the exquisite sari her figure is wearing. The figure took four months to make at a cost of £150,000.
