Roshan said, “I can’t believe I’m here in Madame Tussauds unveiling a wax figure of myself. It’s incredible just how detailed the figure is – they’ve really captured my look. I’m truly honoured to be included and hope my fans will like seeing the figure.”
The screen icon worked closely with the world famous attraction to ensure the pose, which was kept tightly under wraps until the day of its unveiling, was spot on, in homage to one of his most famous roles. He is portrayed in a short sleeved shirt left wide open to reveal his toned and taut body to full effect. Hrithik was completely involved in the creation of the figure – attending two sittings in Mumbai and London where sculptors captured a catalogue of reference photographs and hundreds of precise measurements. Hrithik also donated the red shirt and dark blue jeans his figure is wearing.
Hrithik Roshan is the youngest male actor from India to be honoured by Madame Tussauds. The figure took four months to make at a cost of £150,000 and joins fellow Indian film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan in the attraction’s special Bollywood area.
