It is a very rare star who gets their wax figure displayed at Madame Tussauds. Only five Bollywood stars have achieved this distinction.
Kareena Kapoor now joins the league and her wax figure will be unveiled in October 2011. But she achieves a double distinction as the launch of her wax figure will also flag off a global Bollywood exhibition where the Bollywood wax figures will travel to six cities including London, Hong Kong and Bangkok, thus reflecting a growing global interest in Bollywood.
Matthew Titherington, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Blackpool, said: “We are very excited to have Kareena in Blackpool to launch our amazing Bollywood figures. It is a real honour to have her here and we know that the UK will be very excited to see her and her new wax figure. It is the first time she has been immortalised in wax and the first time these figures will be grouped together. It is the perfect place to launch our Bollywood World tour with the dedicated Bollywood room and look forward to welcoming her fans to the attraction when the figure goes on display in October.”
