Salman Khan‘s wax statue will join the collection of wax figures at Madame Tussauds New York on Thursday, August 2. The celebrated actor will join such famed Bollywood stars as, Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, in the attraction’s Bollywood Zone.
"Salman Khan is one of Bollywood’s most enduring and recognizable stars," said Bret Pidgeon, General Manager of Madame Tussauds New York. "Bollywood exploded on the American pop culture scene several years ago and has become one of our most exciting entertainment categories."
Salman‘s wax figure is joining Madame Tussauds New York‘s Bollywood Zone, which was created after numerous visitor requests. The brightly-colored, fully-interactive area includes a replica of the Taj Mahal, videos of authentic Indian dancers and a photo area where visitors can pose with Bollywood stars – all designed to re-create the experience of being on a Bollywood film. Over the coming years, Madame Tussauds plans to expand the area to include figures of other prominent Bollywood stars.
