Singer Shreya Ghoshal will soon be immortalised in the form of a wax statue at Madame Tussauds Museum in Delhi and will be the first Indian singer to capture a space among other celebrities.
The 33-year-old singer is the latest addition to the iconic group which has life-like figures of megastar Amitabh Bachchan and American pop diva Lady Gaga.
“I am thrilled to be a part of history here at Madame Tussauds, and it is an honour to be featured among such talented stars, artists, historians and renowned celebrities. To be immortalised forever is a fabulous feeling. With its brilliant concept, Madame Tussauds has always been famous for bringing joy all across the world,” Shreya said in a statement.
The installation seeks to celebrate her 15-year-long illustrious career, since her debut in 2002 with songs like "Silsila Ye Chahat Ka" and "Bairi Piya" from the film "Devdas".
The exhibit is expected to open at Regal cinema, in the heart of Delhi this year.
"We are pleased to unveil Shreya's figure in the Delhi attraction. She is one of the most loved singers of today's generation. We are excited to see our visitors sing along with her. She was one of the most requested figures for us to include in the attraction, and we are delighted to be able to honour those fans with this wax figure," said Anshul Jain, General Manager and Director, Merlin Entertainments India Pvt Ltd,
Apart from her wax statue in the Delhi wing of the international museum, the house will also have wax statues of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan.
