Janhvi & Khushi To Unveil Sridevi’s Wax Figure At Madame Tussauds

It was on the late icon’s birthday on August 13 that Madame Tussauds Singapore announced the launch of Sridevi’s wax figure, as a tribute.

According to the museum, a team of 20 skilled artists worked closely with Sridevi’s family over the course of five months to replicate her pose, expressions, make-up and outfit from her hit song Hawa Hawai.

“It was a privilege to recreate such a legendary star in close collaboration with her family,” said Lizzie Parkinson, Costumier from Merlin Magic Making team in the UK.

She added, “What made this project particularly challenging and interesting was the recreation of her outfit. Her crown, cuffs, earrings and dress brooch were 3D-printed, and went through numerous tests to achieve the level of detail needed. It was a joy to see everyone’s work come together and we look forward to unveiling the figure soon.”

Sridevi’s wax figure will be unveiled early in September by her daughters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor.
