Back in 2011, Kareena Kapoor Khan joined an elite group of Bollywood stars when her wax statue was installed at the famous Madame Tussauds museum in London, UK.



When the statue was first unveiled, it was dressed in the actor’s costume from the popular number, Mauja Hi Mauja, from Jab We Met (2007). But now, the figurine is getting a makeover.



The statue will now be dressed in the sari that

Kareena

was seen wearing in the song Chammak Challo from RA.One (2011).

"Kareena was glad when she was informed of the costume change. She also felt that it had been a while since the statue was unveiled in her Jab We Met outfit. She was happy that the Chammak challo sari was chosen for the statue’s new look," says an insider.



Interestingly,

Kareena

had gone to London to celebrate her husband Saif Ali Khan’s birthday on August 16. She was present at the museum when her statue’s new avatar is unveiled.



When contacted, Kareena told us from London, "It’s always a pleasure to see the statue. We wanted to dress it up a bit so the red sari from Chammak Challo felt perfect."
