Shahid Kapoor has added one more feat in his list of achievements. After Bollywood celebrities like Karan Johar, Kajol, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit, Hrithik Roshan and others, the 'Kabir Singh' actor recently unveiled his wax statue at Madame Tussauds in Singapore.
Shahid later took to his Instagram page to share a picture where he is seen posing with his wax figurine. Check it out right away here.
Shahid Kapoor shared this picture on his Instagram page and captioned it as, "Twinning". As soon as the actor posted this picture, several congratulatory messages started pouring in on his social media handle.
Shahid Feels Special, Blessed & Privileged
Shahid was earlier quoted as saying by Hindustan Times, "You do feel special, blessed and privileged that you'll be a part of an elite group of people, who are achievers. Also, I'm curious and excited to see what the statue looks like, and I'm sure that moment will be a bit weird and surreal."
He further added, "When I saw a picture of Mahesh Babu with his statue, I couldn't figure out the real person (laughs). I am happy that they thought I was deserving of a wax statue. I am thrilled to be there and be a part of that experience. I'm sure it will be nice."
The Actor Wants His Statue To Represent His Body Of Work
"For starters, it's going be there for a while, probably for longer than I live. Honestly, I feel it should represent my body of work. I don't want to be featured in the Madame Tussauds for reasons like, ‘he looks good in a suit and his pictures turn out to be good.' Those aren't my priorities in life.
It's nice to look good. If they felt that I have done some substantial work, which should be recognised, that's a great compliment. It's very encouraging and I am very thankful."
Here's Why His Kids Misha & Zain Didn't Accompany Him To Unveil The Wax Statue
Speaking about his family's reaction about him getting waxed, Shahid said, "Everyone including my wife, in-laws, as well as my parents. They all had a big smile on their face when they learnt about it. They were like, ‘oh, it's great'. All of them had a genuine reaction of happiness and surprise."
"As for Misha and Zain, we don't plan to take them for the unveiling of the statue. Otherwise they may think, ‘wow, what just happened?' as it could be a traumatic experience for them to see two dads (laughs). So, only Mira will join me," the actor earlier revealed.
