Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi joins world leaders at Madame Tussauds ….reports Asian Lite News
New wax figures of Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, today took up residence at Madame Tussauds in Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok, after the statesman met the wax figure destined for the London attraction at a private viewing earlier this week.
Mr Modi has been involved in the creation of his figure from the beginning of the process and was pleased with the final results when he came face to face with himself in Delhi on Monday.
Mr Modi commented: “What can I say? As far as art is concerned, the Madame Tussauds team is exceptional at what they do. What Lord Brahma does normally is what the artists there are doing. Today, I had an opportunity as the prime servant of my people to meet my wax figure.”
The London figure is now travelling back from India and will join other world leaders at the world famous Baker Street location on 28 April. As well as contemporary politicians President Obama, David Cameron, Angela Merkel and Francoise Holland he will stand along side political giants of the past like Mahatma Ghandi and Winston Churchill.
“We will be delighted to welcome Mr Modi to the world stage at Madame Tussauds London,” commented General Manager, Edward Fuller. “It’s wonderful that he had the opportunity to see his figure in India earlier this week before the public get the chance to meet him here. His social media following shows just what immense interest there is in him and I’m sure that interest will be apparent here too as guests get the chance to stand shoulder to shoulder with one of the most influential men in the world. And maybe even grab a selfie.”
Mr Modi’s figure is dressed in his signature Kurta in cream with jacket and he is featured in a traditional pose making a namaste gesture. Each figure took a team of talented artists four months and cost £150,000 to create.
