Anushka Sharma becomes the first Indian to get an interactive figurine at Madame Tussauds Singapore.
Anushka Sharma is riding high on success after she produced three films in three different genres: NH10, Phillauri and Pari. Not only she has established herself as a mainstream Bollywood actress but also has opened the gates of new avenues for different genre of films by foraying into film production. It was this year itself that Anushka got featured in Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia 2018 list. There’s another good news coming her way as the actress is getting a unique interactive figurine at the coveted Madame Tussauds museum in Singapore.
“Yes, it’s true that the wax museum is set to unveil an interactive statue of Anushka. Madame Tussauds is extremely selective when it comes to zeroing in on the personalities that gets a unique interactive feature. Thanks to the special figurine, she joins the list of illustrious global icons such as Oprah Winfrey, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lewis Hamilton who also have their interactive sets at the Singapore museum,” says an insider.
What sets Anushka Sharma’s wax statue apart from Oprah Winfrey and Hamilton’s is the feature that will have her talk.
“In fact, hers will be the first wax statue in Singapore museum with this feature. It’s a new interactive feature that Madame Tussauds is introducing with her figurine. It only proves her popularity across countries because only a handful of global power leaders and icons have such interactive features with their statues,” said the insider.
Shedding light on Anushka’s wax figurine, the sources told that her statue will be seen holding a phone.
“Guests can take selfies with her statue and she will be heard saying warm greetings if one picks up the phone,” the source adds.
Talking about this latest addition to Madame Tussauds Singapore, Alex Ward, General Manager of the museum said, “She will have the first talking wax figure. Not just families, we also see many young adults from India coming to our attraction, and this is a great opportunity for us to cater to that audience. Anushka has been frequently requested by our guests and we are sure that she will be an incredibly popular addition to our attraction.”
On the work front, Anushka Sharma will be next seen in Sharat Kataria’s Sui Dhaaga opposite Varun Dhawan. She also has an important role in Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film Zero which is slated for December release.
