Shahid Kapoor's statue, newest addition to Tussauds
Bollywood's tryst with Tussauds
Before Shahid, Deepika Padukone informed her fans that she'd be getting a statue in London and Delhi. Notably, Amitabh Bachchan was the first Bollywood star to get his statue in 2000. And, KJo will be the first Indian director to get his wax statue.
Why the hype about Madame Tussauds?
Madame Tussauds is a prestigious wax museum. Founded by a French wax sculptor Marie Tussaud, it hosts waxworks of famous stars, historic figures and iconic movie characters. The first museum was built in London, but now there are many such museums in various parts of the world. In India, we have two of them - one in New Delhi and the other in Kolkata.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Shahid is keeping busy
Shahid Kapoor's 2018 started on a splendid note as his movie 'Padmaavat' performed exceptionally well at the box office. Kapoor's next 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' will release on September 21. The movie is directed by Shree Narayan Singh and also features Shraddha Kapoor. Notably, this movie will lock horns with Abhishek Bachchan-Taapse Pannu- Vicky Kaushal starrer 'Manmarziyaan'.
