Kareena, star of over 40 films, whose last three films feature in the top five Bollywood box office blockbusters of all time, is an icon in the world of Bollywood and over 1,000 fans came to meet her at the launch in Blackpool today.
On seeing her wax figure, Kareena said, “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 Indian cinema. 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.”
A special Bollywood room has been created within Madame Tussauds Blackpool just for this special exhibition, which will be at the attraction until January, before moving to Bangkok. Other Bollywood figures on show include: Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan and an all new figure of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Kareena’s figure, which took four months to create at a cost of £150,000, will take pride of place at the new Blackpool attraction.
