Madame Tussauds Delhi announced Thursday that Bollywood star Sunny Leone will soon be joining the ranks of celebrities and icons to get a wax statue at their Delhi exhibit.

The wax exhibit of famous Indian celebrities will be arranged in a yet-to-be-themed environment where fans can come and pose with their favourite heroes and heroines. 

Sunny Leone, Canadian-born, Indian-American actress and model has made it big in the Indian entertainment industry and has so far acted in several films. 

For making her wax figure, a team of experts flew in from London to meet with Sunny in Mumbai where they took over 200 specific measurements and images to create an authentic figure. 

Excited about being selected for the showcase, Sunny remarked: “I am thrilled and grateful to Madame Tussauds for creating my figure. Having my own wax figure is completely overwhelming. This is the first time I have undergone a sitting and I must thank the entire team for making it a unique and memorable experience. I am equally excited to see ’me’ at the attraction and can’t wait for the fans reaction it will be finally displayed later this year. Madame Tussauds is a ‘one-of-a-kind’ attraction and I am so thrilled to be chosen for this incredible honour."

Anshul Jain, General Manager, and Director, Merlin Entertainments India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Sunny Leone is undoubtedly one of the biggest sensational divas of Bollywood with a massive fan base, so her figure has been an evident choice for Madame Tussauds Delhi. Announcing her figure at the attraction is equally enthralling for us, and we are certain that this will give her fans millions of memories to carry home with lots of selfies”.

Madame Tussauds has attractions in London, Hollywood, Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna, Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore, Wuhan, Blackpool UK, Sydney, Nashville and Delhi, with experiences built around fame and celebrity.

They have been making wax figures for over 150 years with each prepared in a span of four months after a team of 20 dedicated artists sit to create perfection.
