SRK immortalized in wax in Hollywood
Madame Tussauds Hollywood, the biggest new attraction to southern California, has added another stellar personality to its stable of Hollywood films, television and music stars immortalized in wax.
The $55 million attraction, located on Hollywood Blvd, next door to the historic Grauman’s Chinese theatre, induced the wax figure of Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan into its storied collection on Thurs, Jan28, for a limited engagement that ends April 30. The unveiling was accompanied by an appearance of America’s premier Indian dance company and recent America’s Got Talent contender, Ishaara.
The international news magazine Newsweek named Khan one of the 50 most powerful people in the world.
The 44 year Khan is the first Bollywood star to be inducted here and the historic addition of this figure symbolizes a coming together of the world’s two great film centers, Hollywood and Bollywood.
Khan is often called the “The King of Bollywood” and he has starred in over 70 movies. His latest film titled “My Name Is Khan’ is set for a domestic release on Feb 12.
Along with his prolific appearances in the India films at the country’s busiest actor, Khan is also a producer and a television host.
He recently hosted India’s version of ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” and Khan is also one of the owner of one of India’s premier cricket teams, Kolkata Knight Riders.
Authentic life like figures, interactive experiences, themed areas and the best in quality and immersive guest interaction are just the beginning of Madame Tussauds Hollywood – the ultimate celebrity experience!
