The famous wax museum, Madame Tussauds, in New York unveiled Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s wax statue on August 2.
The actor’s wax figure has joined with the Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s statue at the Madame Tussauds museum on Thursday. In 2008, Salman’s statue was placed at London’s Madame Tussauds, making him the fourth Indian actor to have wax statue there.
Salman Khan, who has acted in more than 80 films, achieved stardom in 1989 with his award-performance in Maine Pyar Kiya. People Magazine in 2004 has named him the seventh best-looking man in the world.
“Salman Khan is one of Bollywood’s most enduring and recognizable stars,” said Bret Pidgeon, general manager of Madame Tussauds New York. “Bollywood exploded on the American pop culture scene several years ago and has become one of our most exciting entertainment categories.”
Salman Khan’s wax figure was installed after requests from numerous visitors. His statue was taken on loan for three months from Madame Tussauds London.
