Photos of Baahubali star Prabhas’ Madame Tussauds wax statue are going viral on social media.
With Baahubali: The Conclusion breaking every box office record in sight since its opening on April 28, the star has beaten established South Indian actors like Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan to become the first actor from southern cinema to be featured at Madame Tussauds. His figure will be displayed at the museum’s Bangkok venue.
The statues feature him as his famous character Amarendra Baahubali from director SS Rajamouli’s two-part films.
“I am really happy to have been selected by Madame Tussauds’ and I think this was only possible because of fans. I am grateful for their unconditional love and support. I am also thankful to my guru, SS Rajamouli, for the opportunity to work on this fantastic project Baahubali,” he said in a statement.
According to a TOI report, the actor met with artists who took more than 350 photographs in reference. These photos, along with pictures of the statue, are now doing the rounds on social media.
