Deepika Padukone‘s wax figurine to be unveiled at Madame Tussauds London in 2019 – Joining the likes of Bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Katrina Kaif and others, Deepika Padukone will be the latest B-Town actor to get a wax statue of her own. Confirming the development through a live video on Facebook, Deepika said, “It’s fun and exciting. 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 becomes really special. I hope they enjoy it as much as we enjoy creating it.” Her wax figurine will be unveiled early next year and will be installed at the Madame Tussauds, London as well as the one in New Delhi.
Talking about her earliest memories of the museum, DP said, “The only time I visited Madamme Tussauds, London was with my parents when I was very little. That memory has stayed with me, obviously. And then to receive a letter to be a part of that, and to actually experience what goes into making these wax figures. I think Madame Tussauds is iconic in so many ways, that’s why it’s really special.”
