Kareena Kapoor on Thursday unveiled her wax statue at the Madame Tussauds museum in Blackpool, Britain.
‘It is an honour and a privilege for me to have my own wax figure at Madame Tussauds Blackpool and even more so to launch a global Bollywood exhibition. This is a moment of pride for Indian cinema,’ Kareena said in a statement.
It took four months to create the wax statue, which cost 150,000 pounds.
‘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,’ she added.
The unveiling of Kareena’s wax figure also flagged off a global exhibition, where the statues of Bollywood stars will be taken to six major cities around the world to be exhibited, before they are brought back to Blackpool in January next year.
