Story highlights

The wax figure will be on display in Hyderabad for a day before it is flown to Madame Tussauds, Singapore for installation. 

Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu is the latest actor to have found a place at Madame Tussauds. The actor's wax figure will be on display at the Singapore museum. 

The statue was unveiled by the actor himself at AMB Cinemas in Hyderabad on Monday.

AMB Cinemas, a 7-screen superplex, is a joint venture between Mahesh and Asian Group, a leading film distribution company. The actor's wife, Namrata Shirodkar and his children were also present during the unveiling. 

Mahesh is the second Telugu actor after Prabhas to be immortalized in the form of a wax statue. What is unique to the event is the fact that the statue will be displayed for a day at AMB Cinemas so that his fans can catch a glimpse of it and later will be flown to Singapore where it will be installed at Madame Tussauds museum.

A select group of fans, who were screened through sketching and other contests, will get an opportunity to take selfies with Mahesh`s wax statue.

On the career front, Mahesh is busy wrapping up the shoot of upcoming Telugu film 'Maharshi', which is being directed by Vamshi Paidipally.

Last seen on-screen playing a Chief Minister in 'Bharat Ane Nenu', Mahesh will soon begin work on his next project with director Anil Ravipudi.
