Anushka becomes first Indian to get interactive wax statue


Anushka Sharma’s wax figure will soon click selfies and greet visitors at the Madame Tussauds museum in Singapore. The Pari actress would be honoured with an interactive wax statue and she is the first Indian to get such a figurine. Other than Anushka Sharma, international icons such as Oprah Winfrey, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lewis Hamilton also have wax figures with different interactive features.
“Anushka’s statue will talk. In fact, she will be the first wax statue in the Singapore museum with this feature. It is a massive interactivity feature that Madame Tussauds is adding to her wax statue. Only a handful of global power leaders/icons have other forms of interactivity attached to their statues and this move by the museum is a huge salutation to Anushka’s global fan following,” a museum spokesperson said in a press statement.
The statement added, “Anushka’s statue will be holding a phone. The phone works and guests can take selfies with Anushka and her statue will be heard saying warm greetings. With a selfie moment and a speaking Anushka, the statue promises a very special experience for her fans and admirers.”
Alex Ward, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Singapore, said, “We are thrilled to be working with Anushka Sharma. She will have the first talking wax figure at Madame Tussauds Singapore. We see many families but also 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.”
Anushka Sharma’s statue would share the limelight with Ranbir Kapoor and Kajol’s wax figures at Madame Tussauds in Singapore.
