Bollywood superstar Kareena Kapoor joins other legends at Madame Tussauds Sydney
From August 5th to October 28th only, visitors to Madame Tussauds Sydney have the chance to get up close and personal with five of Bollywood’s biggest stars in an interactive experience set to have everyone practicing their best Bollywood dance moves.
To celebrate the arrival of the Bollywood legends, local dance companies Nupur Dance Group and Road2Bollywood Academy charmingly danced around the figures to create the atmosphere of a real life Bollywood movie set. Also present was the Consul General of India, Arun K. Goel, who was nothing less than astounded by the lifelike figures.
With the identity of the last figure to feature in the exhibit kept tightly under wraps, many fans will
be relieved to learn that Bollywood screen siren Kareena Kapoor will also be a part of the Bollywood extravaganza. Born into a family of actors, Kapoor rose to fame in 2000 and went on to cement her name as Bollywood royalty. Further to this, Kapoor played a part in 3 Idiots (2009) which is the highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time, taking in US$45.18million in India alone.
Other screen legends to feature in the exhibit include one of Bollywood’s leading ladies and Miss World 1994, Aishwarya Rai, actor, producer and presenter Amitabh Bachchan, highly celebrated Bollywood actor, producer and television host Shahrukh Khan and child actor turned successful Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan.
Hywel Mathias, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Sydney is delighted to welcome the Bollywood World Tour to Sydney and remarked, “This exhibit will add even more colour and interactivity to our attraction, and I have no doubt the amazingly lifelike wax figures will be extremely popular with our guests, particularly the local Indian community. The Bollywood industry
is one that is growing exponentially and we are certainly very proud to be able to offer our guests a taste of it right here in Sydney”.
The Bollywood World Tour will join the unique line-up of celebrities already featured at Madame Tussauds Sydney including Captain Cook, Sir Donald Bradman, Albert Einstein, Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp and Lady Gaga.
