Deepika Padukone joined the row of the stars whose wax statue have been placed in prestigious Madame Tussauds wax statue museum. She made an announcement via an FB Live. And now, the talented actor and her Padmaavat co-star Shahid Kapoor revealed that his wax statue to is going to be placed at Madame Tussauds.
The actor recently was asked about his family’s reaction, he said: “I didn’t inform anyone in my family except Mira (Rajput). When I posted the picture, everyone was like, ‘You didn’t tell us about it ’ (laughs). The team didn’t want me to talk about it for some time, so I was waiting for them to give me a go ahead. It happened around two months ago. Now that my mom knows, she is really happy.”
While Mira’s reaction on Shahid’s wax statue is revealed by Shahid, “She was extremely happy and wanted to know more about the process. So, when they were taking my measurements, I was on FaceTime with her. They had 50 shades of eyeballs and hair. They laid them out to check which one was closest to mine. Mira was curious to know, so I was showing her how they put 150 dots on my face, made me stand still and took pictures with 2D as well as 3D cameras. She was quite fascinated.”
Mira was the one who finalized the actor’s wax statue look: “They sent options for the pose that I could go for. Mira took the final call on that.”
The actor on asking to choose who he wants his wax statue to be placed next to? said: “If I’m placed next to somebody, it will definitely be someone who’s way more accomplished than me. So I’d just ask them to give me a corner of my own (smiles). Honestly, I’d like to be featured with people who are from my generation because I think that would be appropriate. Varun is the closest, so maybe they should put us together somewhere. I think our statues should be high-fiving each other (laughs).”
