Just a day after the release of her much-anticipated movie Ra.One, actress Kareena Kapoor has unveiled her wax statue at the Madame Tussauds museum in Blackpool Britain. The Bollywood star also launched a global Bollywood exhibition on Thursday, 27th October, 2011.
Kareena Kapoor says that her wax figure is a big honour for her. Talking to the IANS, the Ra.One star says, "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 the Indian cinema."
Bebo's wax statue has been created with a whopping amount of 150,000 pounds and it has taken four months to create the wax statue. Talking about the statue, Kareena Kapoor gushes, "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."
However, the Madame Tussauds museum already has the wax figures of Bollywood stars like Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai and Kareena's sculpture is the latest addition to it. On the occasion, Kareena 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.
