Anushka Sharma, the first Indian talking wax figure at Madame Tussauds


Anushka Sharma is going to be the first Indian talking statue at Madame Tussauds in Singapore. The ‘Pari’ actress flew to Singapore for the measurement of the statue. Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lewis Hamilton also have interactive wax figure.

Alex Ward, the General Manager, Madame Tussauds Singapore has stated, “We are thrilled to be working with Anushka Sharma. She will have the first talking wax figure at Madame Tussauds Singapore. We see many families but also young adults from India coming to our attraction, and this is a great opportunity for us to cater to that audience. Anushka has been frequently requested by our guests and we are sure that she will be an incredibly popular addition to our attraction!”

“Yes, it’s true that the wax museum is set to unveil an interactive statue of Anushka. Madame Tussauds is extremely selective when it comes to zeroing in on the personalities that gets a unique interactive feature. Thanks to the special figurine, she joins the list of illustrious global icons such as Oprah Winfrey, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lewis Hamilton who also have their interactive sets at the Singapore museum,” says an insider.

Unlike Oprah, Ronaldo and Hamilton, Anushka’s statue will have a special feature that will “have her talk”. “In fact, hers will be the first wax statue in Singapore museum with this feature. It’s a new interactive feature that Madame Tussauds is introducing with her figurine. It only proves her popularity across countries because only a handful of global power leaders and icons have such interactive features with their statues,” says the insider.

The actress’s statue will see her holding a phone. “Guests can take selfies with her statue and she will be heard saying warm greetings if one picks up the phone,” informs the insider.
