Aishwarya Rai’s wax statue at Madame Tussauds in Sydney, joins Shah Rukh Khan
Bollywood diva and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will now have the “Lights, Camera, Bollywood” experience at Madame Tussauds in Sydney as she joined the family on Wednesday. “We’re excited to announce that Aishwarya Rai has joined the Madame Tussauds family and will be here for a limited time only. She is one of the most popular and influential celebrities in India and we know she’ll be a big hit with Bollywood fans,” said Mark Connolly, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Sydney.
Aishwarya, who was last seen at the Cannes Film Festival, will give company to Shah Rukh Khan at the museum. “The Lights, Camera, Bollywood experience opened in April and is one of the most energetic and loved experiences by our guests. It truly depicts the vibrant life backstage on a Bollywood movie production set and we love seeing the fun that our visitors have when they learn how to master a Bollywood dance routine or star in an iconic film scene, including DDLJ. With the new addition of Aishwarya Rai featuring alongside Shah Rukh Khan, we’re confident there will be a lot more selfies snapped in the Bollywood zone,” said Connolly.
“The pose of the figure is based on her red carpet look at the Robin Hood film premiere at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival in May 2010 and we think it looks spot on! She is only in Sydney until January 2020,” he further informed.
Aishwarya Rai was the first Bollywood actress to have a prestigious Madame Tussauds figure created in London back in 2004. She now has multiple wax figures at the museums across the world.
