The world famous wax museum at London, Madame Tussauds, has announced that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will join the ranks of prominent global leaders at Madame Tussauds in London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok, next month by next month.
“Prime Minister Modi is a hugely important figure in world politics, a position supported by his place in the top 10 of Time Magazines Person of the Year List 2015,” museum spokesperson Kieran Lancini said.
“Madame Tussauds has crafted figures of very distinguished dignitaries from around the world – how could I regard myself worthy of being alongside them? But when I was informed that your decision had emanated from public opinion and public sentiment, I was comforted,” said Modi.
Modi’s wax figures will be dressed in his signature kurta with a jacket, and will be featured making a traditional namaste gesture.
“Guests will be able to stand shoulder to shoulder and measure up to one of the most powerful men in the world and even grab a selfie when the figures arrive in their locations,” the museum said.
The wax statue is expected to be unveiled in London and all other centres of the museum around late April. However, there is no confirmation if Modi would personally unveil his wax statue.
