Bollywood superstar came face-to-face with her wax figure for the first time at Madame Tussauds London yesterday evening, 27th March 2015.
The Jab Tak Hai Jaan actress unveiled her dancing pose wax figure and met her die-hard UK fans at the launch, which was also attended by her siblings who reside in London.
2015 is the 15th anniversary of Bollywood at Madame Tussauds London and to celebrate, the world famous attraction has created a glamorous new setting for its Indian film stars, which was officially opened yesterday when Katrina Kaif revealed her brand new wax figure.
The stunning star becomes the seventh Bollywood actor to be honoured with a figure at Madame Tussauds London – her inclusion has a special significance as she was voted for by fans, just as Amitabh Bachcahn was in 2000.
Kaif’s wax figure wears a sequined white, silver and pink, two piece outfit by celebrity designer Manish Malhotra.
“It’s an amazing honour to be asked to be featured alongside icons of the Indian film industry,” the actress commented. “I have really enjoyed working with the team and am delighted with the end result. I can’t believe how detailed and accurate it is. It is just like looking in a mirror in 3D,” said the 31-year-old actress.
Speaking to press at the launch, Katrina revealed that she never had the chance to visit Madame Tussauds during the few years that she lived in London. She also expressed her desire to have her wax figure placed next to Hollywood hearth-throb Johnny Depp’s wax figure.
