Legendary artist Asha Bhosle is good to go to join celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Lady Gaga, Sachin Tendulkar and Kapil Dev at India’ first upcoming Madame Tussauds wax museum in New Delhi, reports. The figure will be shown in the Bollywood music zone along with other leading singers. “Thank you to Madame Tussauds and my fans for considering me for this incredible honour. Having a wax figure is a totally ecstatic feeling and it’s another experience for me. This is the first time when I have undergone a sitting and I should say thanks to them for making it a unique and exciting experience,” Ms Bhosle, 83, said in an announcement, reports.
A news agency reports that a team of experts from Madame Tussauds met Asha Bhosle a year ago for the particular measurements and pictures. “I am eager to see and meet my last figure when the attraction opens. Madame Tussauds is a ‘one-of-a-kind’ attraction and is a rage over the world and I am looking forward to the launch and opening in Delhi,” the vocalist said.
The Madame Tussauds wax museum in Delhi is located at the Regal Cinema building in Connaught Place. The museum is probably going to open in a few months.
Asha Bhosle is one of the leading singers of Bollywood for more than six decades. She is the sister of playback vocalist Lata Mangeshkar. She has given playback for some of the hit melodies like Parde Mein Rehne Do, Piya Tu Ab To Aaja, Dum Maro Dum and Yeh Mera Dil. She was given the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2000 and the Padma Vibhushan in 2008. She made her debut as a performer in the 2013 film Mai.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Hrithik Roshan already have their wax statues in Madame Tussauds, London and different areas.
