Just a few months back Karan Johar became the first Bollywood director to get a wax statue at Madame Tussauds London. And now, Deepika Padukone is joining these stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Shah Rukh Khan. Deepika Padukone will soon get her wax statue at not only in London but at Delhi too.
Deepika announced this news in her Facebook live video from the British capital. “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 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.
She also shared some behind the scene pictures on Instagram and Twitter.
