As a tribute to Bollywood icon Sridevi, Madame Tussauds Singapore announces the launch of her exclusive wax figure, crafted in memory of the legendary actress to coincide with what would have been her 56th birthday today.
Sridevi is one of the most influential actresses of Indian cinema, inspiring numerous actresses and amassing hordes of fans worldwide. Regarded as the first female superstar of Indian cinema, she redefined the importance of female leads in India’s largely male-dominated film industry. Sridevi won countless accolades during her lifetime, including the prestigious National Film Award, the Nandi Award, as well as the Padma Shri. She established herself in Bollywood in a career that spanned five decades.
Sridevi’s wax figure is the only one of its kind in the world and exclusive addition to Madame Tussauds Singapore. Created posthumously, a team of 20 skilled artists worked closely with Sridevi’s family over the course of five months to replicate her pose, expressions, make-up and iconic outfit.
The figure will be officially launched in early September by Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor, Indian film producer, and his two daughters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor.
Placed at a Mr India set in the Ultimate Film Star Experience (UFSE) zone, the figure will be accompanied by a special memorial wall where Sridevi’s fans can leave their tribute messages. There will also be lucky fans from Madame Tussauds Singapore’s social media pages selected to join the event and witness the unveiling of the star’s wax figure along with the family. Further details will be announced on their official Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.
The unique experience utilises cutting-edge technology like Kinect and AR to give visitors the chance to step into the limelight:
