What is a best approach to hail your favourite stars in reality? Some propitious fans get to accommodate them personally, a tiny territory on a films’ sets and an even smaller series during media interactions. But what about a remaining majority? At slightest for a Delhi crowd, they have an advantage over their counterparts opposite a nation. They have a initial Madame Tussauds polish museum in a nation that non-stop a doors for Indians in Dec final year. Four months on, and a series of ‘celebrities’ is flourishing by a day. So what’s special about the India book of a polish museum sequence that has spin synonymous with “living with a stars” utterly literally opposite a globe? In short, because should a chairman come revisit a Delhi one, when a general locations flourish refinement and craftsmanship?
Personally, we had upheld by a new discriminating structure situated in a iconic Regal building in Connaught Place round utterly a few times. But, never did we feel an titillate to step inside and see a stars smiling and gazing during me. Let’s usually censure it on a standards set by a strange London museum or dozens of others including a Los Angeles (Hollywood) one.
Four months and over 50 statues down, it was time for a phenomenon of Shah Rukh Khan’s polish figure. But, distinct how he privately trafficked to London when his statue was commissioned there behind in 2007. Almost a decade down and looks like King Khan couldn’t make time for his possess polish statue in his possess country.
As we walked by a feathery runner laid on a dry side trail of a road, we did get a feeling we was about to declare something nice. Of course, being an fervent film buff, this time we was vehement for a opposite reason.
The entrance took me into a support true out of a Sooraj Barjatya film. Salman Khan in his signature leather jacket, a Being Human T-shirt and faded denims is roving a rickshaw. The usually disproportion being that Bollywood’s Bhai is during slightest 10 years younger – a ideal nostalgia for Sallu fanatics. Yes, we do wish to go on a absolved with him yet afterwards existence hits we tough and we realize it is usually a statue smiling behind during you.
Next up, Tom Cruise looks action-ready in a support true out of his adrenaline rushing stunts. To place a Mission Impossible star right after Salman was indeed a intelligent chain by a museum management, given his tellurian appeal.
As we try to come tighten to Tom (since we can't do that even if we accommodate him in reality!), my eyes locate a steer of a beautifully embellished adult lady wearing lehenga reminding me of Anarkali from Mughal-E-Azam. But, I’m still not sure! we travel towards her and see a name line-up behind hear reading ‘Madhubala’. Oh no! She is indeed Madhubala, usually that she doesn’t demeanour like her. One indicate down!
Madhubala had Raj Kapoor for company but in black and white. The monochrome set-up of a showman was desirous by Shree 420. And usually when we get teleported to a 1950s Bollywood, I’m brought behind by a scion of Kapoors – Ranbir. The eye-candy of a Kapoor clan, in his renouned “Badtameez Dil” pose, steals a heart away, usually like he did in a strain and a film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Dressed in a frail black suit, his statue was drizzling life. The waxed Ranbir Kapoor was a counterpart and we can attest for that after carrying met a genuine actor in person.
Giving an engaging association to them is Marlyn Monroe in confidant red. My eyes got stranded on her beauty withdrawal me meditative if a statue can be this mesmerising, how would it have been when she was alive. Gathering as many as we can in that one sight, we pierce forward in a alley to enter a gallery named ‘Stage Area’. On a left is a lucent Anil Kapoor in a shot from Academy Award-winning Slumdog Millionaire. He is sitting and a adjacent chair is for a visitors to come and get themselves clicked. Of course, they can even play KBC on a mechanism shade put adult usually like a genuine show.
On my right is TV’s stream controversy’s child Kapil Sharma in his “welcome to a Kapil Sharma Show” posture. Yes, he looks real, in fact too real. There is a cot subsequent to him. So anyone who wishes to be his guest can lay there and get their 5-minutes of fame.
The subsequent dual galleries are dedicated to sports with statues of David Beckham, Mary Kom, Sachin Tendulkar, Kapil Dev, Usain Bolt, Leonel Messi, Milkha Singh and Christiano Ronaldo, all ideally matched to keep a suggestion of any sports fan high. And yes, many of them did full probity to a genuine life counterparts. My favourite was Beckham!
I go deeper inside a room and see a festive Michael Jackson in his signature poise finish with thatch of hair. Next adult is a song territory with a choicest of singers and composers welcoming us. This was one territory we fell in adore with, for a extraordinary arrangement of statues. While on one side is Tabla conductor Zakir Husain seated and in motion, my favourite Asha Bhonsle, in a poetic white sequenced saree with a mic in one palm and her swinging bracelet in a other, is swelling her pleasing smile. Centre of a room is assigned by my childhood favourite Sonu Nigam. Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber are also unresolved with a Indian singers. The solitary differing indicate was Shreya Ghoshal who looked too magisterial to be real. No, Shreya can't be this in real. Her statue certainly needs some correction!
One building down by a chandelier-lit staircase and we enter nonetheless another outrageous room with stars of even bigger stature. Katrina Kaif welcomes me. Just that she doesn’t demeanour convicing, exclusive her prosaic swell and a informed looking ghagra-choli by Manish Malhotra. As Katrina fails to means my attention, we spin on a other side and see Kim Kardashian holding a selfie. Well, now whoever wants one with her has to go mount subsequent to her and place their camera right above hers to get a Perfect angle. Seeing her statue, we accepted because her curves are a speak of a town, always!
I skip a heartbeat, usually to realize that a subsequent one is usually a waxed Will Smith. Yes, he was so real. He is seated with a extended smile, mouth-watering everybody to come subsequent to him and get clicked. This was another favourite. And subsequent to him was Bollywood’s dancing appurtenance Hrithik Roshan. Flaunting his unclothed chest and chiselled body, his figure also promoted HRX, Hrithik’s signature sports wardrobe line. They could’ve finished a improved pursuit with Hrithik too, though.
Next adult is a matched Leonardo DiCaprio in his standard smile. He did take my heart away, and so did Scarlet Johansson in a splendid immature off-shoulder gown. Giving her tough foe is a Indian diva Madhuri Dixit Nene in immature again. Her saree is draped perfectly. And her smile, even in a statue can give excited nights.
Amitabh Bachchan stands a tallest, literally, with a shade personification IIFA montage in a backdrop. The usually indicate of row being Big B here is from during slightest a decade back. It’s time a museum takes his new measurement. After all, we are in adore even with his aged age wrinkles, right? While Kareena Kapoor’s statue was temporarily private for maintenance, Angelina Jolie was here creation adult for a deficiency of her museum neighbour. A black robe with a thigh-high slit, even Angelina’s figure was oozing sexiness. Did it demeanour real? Who cares, after all this lady is so flattering that even her statue can expel a spell!
Just when we was perplexing to review a best and not-so-best sculptures, we was called for a phenomenon of Shah Rukh’s polish statue. Wondering what would be his poise this time, a organisers private a large cloth and there we see a Badshah in a new avatar – a dhoti and a blue bandgala. He looked young, yet many people looked happy. After all, he is a aristocrat of hearts even today. Did we discuss even his statue couldn’t do divided with his signature open arms pose? Well, it was adequate for his giggling fans to come tighten to him, take home some clicks and a feeling of assembly SRK in chairman – accurately what Madame Tussauds museum aims during doing, giving divided a partial of these stars to their fans.
I came out of a museum with a altered view. They’ve finished a good job. Properly embellished adult with good props alongside any statue that people can use before removing snapped and spot-on lighting, a ambience was decent. It is really for those who can't means a outing to London or LA. At slightest they can buy a sheet to this museum that now costs around Rs 900. Next adult to spin a partial of a Delhi museum family are Sunny Leone and Virat Kohli. Visit a place yourself and do share your knowledge with us in a comments territory below.
