    Salman Khan unveils wax statue at Madame Tussauds

    By Agencies

    Surrounded by fans, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan unveiled his wax statute at Madame Tussauds in London on Tuesday.

    Salman beat nine other Indian mega stars to win a place at the world famous waxworks museum after a public poll conducted last summer.




    Salman's statue stands in a special Bollywood section alongside those of three other Mumbai greats – Amitabh Bachchan , Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan .


     


    The museum hopes the installation of the new statue, reflecting Salman's popularity in the West, will attract many more South Asian and British Asian visitors.

    Salman was measured and photographed by expert sculptors in Mumbai last October to kick-start painstaking work on his wax double. He personally chose and donated clothes for the figure to wear.

    Salman, who has starred in over 55 films since his 1988 debut film ‘Biwi Ho To Aisi’ made it to the central London attraction after beating off competition from Madhuri Dixit , Hrithik Roshan , Lata Mangeshkar , Abhishek Bachchan , Rani Mukherjee , Karan Johar , Kajol , Priyanka Chopra and John Abraham .

    More than 10,000 people voted in the poll to choose the "Next Bollywood Star" conducted last August.

    Ben Lovett of Madame Tussauds said recently: "The Asian market is critical to our attraction and our association with Bollywood, particularly the launch of Shah Rukh Khan, has seen a dramatic increase in the number of Asians, from both the UK and abroad, visiting and enjoying Madame Tussauds. We hope to build upon this exciting relationship with the unveiling of Salman."

    Making of Salman Khan's wax statue




    The ‘bindaas’ star, with an attitude of his own who rests in the hearts of millions worldwide is now to be placed in Madame Tussauds. Yes, we are talking about Salman’s wax statute which will be showcased in London from this month. A team from London had come down to Mumbai to take Salman’s measurements to make his wax replica. IndiaFM brings you the exclusive pictures of the Madame Tussauds team taking Salman’s measurements for the wax statute.

    Salman Khan also known as ‘Sallu’ won hands down amongst other candidates like Abhishek, Madhuri, etc. for the wax statute as per the poll conducted by Madame Tussauds. Salman’s light brown eyes, which highlight his mischievous and mysterious profile, were an easy match. The excited Salman was all geared up during the making process.

    Salman’s sense of humor is not new to anyone who knows him. From his Baaghi and Maine Pyar Kiya days, people have been a fan of his smile. A man who knows how to keep the audience on a roll has the most adorable smile. Watching this same smile on the wax statue will be an absolute delight.





    People change styles with upcoming trends but Salman is a trendsetter himself. Sure, no one can deny that. Salman began the trend of torn jeans, the long and colored hair and bracelet. Also, we all know him for his shirtless acts, although, the wax statue would be fully covered in the ‘Salman wear’. In the above picture, we see the hair samples are matched with texture and the hair color of Salman’s hair. The hair for the wax statute will be styled to match Salman’s hairstyle.

    Salman Khan’s wax statue will be unveiled in London on January 15, 2008.
