Madhuri Dixit unveils her wax statue



Bollywood Diva Madhuri Dixit Nene's wax statue was unveiled at the Madame Tussauds in London on Monday, 7th March 2012.



She has become the sixth Bollywood celebrity to have her statue waxed at the historic museum. The 44-year-old dancing diva is the latest Indian film star to join the top line up at the Madame Tussauds wax museum which also houses statues of Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan.

Aishwarya Rai was the first Indian actress to enter the museum back in 2004. Now, she is the second actress, who is getting this honour. Madhuri was also involved in the creation of her figure, attending a sitting in Mumbai where sculptors captured a catalogue of reference photographs and hundreds of precise measurements to create the staggering likeness. She had even donated the exquisite saree which her wax statue is wearing. The figure took four months to build at a cost of USD 150,000.
