Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan today came face-to-face with his wax figure at Madame Tussuads London. The star worked closely with the world famous attraction to ensure the pose, which was kept tightly under wraps until today, was spot on.
Fans were delighted when the award winning actor was revealed “Dhoom” style.
In homage to one of his most famous roles, he is portrayed in a short sleeved shirt left wide open to reveal his toned and taut body to full effect.
Hrithik who was accompanied by parents, father Rakesh Roshan, mother Pinky, grandfather J Om Prakash, wife Sussanne and their two sons, dedicated the honour to his family.
“I am thrilled that my entire family is with me sharing this wonderful moment. More than the wax figure it’s a matter of emotions and pride that my family is there to see all this today. It is made up of what I have received from my parents, grandparents, sister and wife. They have made me what I am. I dedicate this to my family,” he said.
The Bollywood star also spoke about the first time he visited Madame Tussauds as a child.
“I was nine years old, holidaying in London with my family when my grandfather and I went to Madame Tussauds. We had to stand in line for 45 minutes and while I was jumping up and down with impatience and excitement, my grandfather waited patiently.
“I even told him that we should go and come back the next day but my grandfather waited till we could enter Madame Tussauds. Today I feel he’s like that excited child I was,” said the actor. On meeting his double for the first time Hrithik Roshan commented: ���I can�۪t believe I�۪m here in Madame Tussauds unveiling a wax figure of myself. It�۪s incredible just how detailed the figure is”.
