No no, Hrithik, Shahrukh, and Salman aren’t going to be roomies in real life, but their wax counterparts are definitely going to be buddies! Hrithik Roshan is the latest Bollywood actor to be immortalized in wax at the Maddame Tussauds Wax Museum – in London, UK. The statue was unveiled yesterday (Thursday Jan 20th, 2011) at the Museum and Hrithik was almost moved to tears upon viewing the life-like sculpture which captures Hrithik’s Dhoom 2 avatar – 6-pack and all!
Said Hrithik at the unveiling, “Suddenly, I feel there are no failures. Looking at this waxwork that will perhaps be here for a 100 years after I have gone, I feel real hope. I know my children can always come back and see this. It should inspire them to work hard in whatever sphere they choose. Suddenly all the hard work, all the fears, fatigue, prayers everything seems to have an answer.”
Hrithik even shared his memory of his first trip to Madame Tussauds Museum, “I was nine years old, holidaying in London with my family when my grandfather and I went to Madame Tussauds. We had to stand in line for 45 minutes and while I was jumping up and down with impatience and excitement, my grandfather waited patiently. I even told him that we should go and come back the next day but my grandfather waited till we could enter Madame Tussauds. Today, I feel he’s like that excited child I was!”
Hrithik Roshan joins actors Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who have also been immortalized in wax at the Museum, along with cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. Check out the images below and let us know who is your favorite wax Bollywood star!
