Hrithik Roshan unveils his daring new wax figure
Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan today came face-to-face with his wax figure, delighting fans when the award winning actor was revealed Dhoom style.
The star worked closely with the us to ensure the pose, which was kept tightly under wraps until today, was spot on. In homage to one of his most famous roles, he is portrayed in a short sleeved shirt left wide open to reveal his toned and taut body to full effect.
On meeting his double for the first time Hrithik Roshan commented: “I can’t believe I’m here in Madame Tussauds unveiling a wax figure of myself. It’s incredible just how detailed the figure is – they’ve really captured my look. I’m truly honoured to be included and hope my fans will like seeing the figure”.
The star of hit films including Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai, Dhoom:2, Krrish and Jodha Akbar… is the youngest male actor from India to be honoured by Madame Tussauds.
Roshan was completely involved in the creation of the figure - attending two sittings in Mumbai and London where our sculptors captured a catalogue of reference photographs and hundreds of precise measurements. Hirthik also donated the red shirt and dark blue jeans his figure is wearing.
The figure took four months to make at a cost of £150,000 and joins fellow Indian film stars Amitabh Bachan, Aishwarya Rai, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan in our special Bollywood area. To co-incide with the launch of Hrithik’s new figure the area has been given an update with an all new interactive touch screen where you can watch their favourite dance routine from five Bollywood icons.
Liz Edwards, our PR Manager commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Hrithik (and his family) here today and to be including his figure in our Bollywood area. It is one of our most popular areas in the entire attraction and we know it’s going to be even more so with Hrithik now featured in the line up. The pose is so striking it is sure to wow fans and get ladies hearts a flutter. In fact it has got to be one of the most daring figures we have ever created”.
You can get up close and personal with Hrithik from 20th January 2011.
