Varun to get his first Madame Tussauds wax figure

HONG KONG, Oct 17: Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan's first ever wax figure will be the fourth from India to join Madame Tussauds’ Hong Kong with those of Mahatma Gandhi, Narendra Modi and Amitabh Bachchan currently on display. He will unveil it in the first quarter of 2018.

"Huge honor. Can't wait to come there and stare down my wax figure. Thank you," Dhawan tweeted on Monday.

Dhawan, who made his acting debut in the 2012 romantic comedy ‘Student of the Year’, has also starred in ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, ‘ABCD 2’, ‘Main Tera Hero’, ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and most recently in ‘Judwaa 2’. "It was a great experience to work with Madame Tussauds. I am so excited to get my wax figure in Hong Kong," the actor said in a statement on Madame Tussauds' official website. A group of skilled Madame Tussauds’ sculpting team specially travelled to Mumbai to meet Dhawan and conduct a detailed sitting process. 

More than 200 measurements were taken; the team also matched the hair and eye color of the actor. Dhawan also worked closely with the team and kept sharing his ideas on the pose of the figure.

Jenny You, General Manager of Madame Tussauds, Hong Kong, said, "Varun Dhawan is one of the most requested figures and we are delighted to be partnering with this Bollywood great actor. Hong Kong is a multicultural metropolis which makes us a unique brand.”

"Visitors can meet Hollywood, Asian and also Bollywood stars here at Madame Tussauds’ Hong Kong. The worldwide popularity of Bollywood films makes people in Hong Kong increasingly embrace Bollywood culture.”
