Twitteratti not happy with Madhubala's wax statue at Madame Tussauds Delhi
The sculpture that was made in her iconic “Anarkali” pose from the movie Mughal-e-Azam evoked mixed reactions from Twitter
It seems that Madame Tussauds Delhi’s recent unveiling of a wax statue of period Bollywood actress Madhubala has not been well received by Indian Twitteratti.Most of the Twitter users are claiming that the statue, that took UK-based artists six months to make, has no resemblance to the golden era Bollywood actress at all.

However, Madhubala’s younger sibling Madhur Brij Bhushan, present at the occasion, seemed very impressed with the statue.
The sculpture that was made in the actress’s iconic “Anarkali” pose from the movie Mughal-e-Azam was reportedly chosen by the former actress’s family.
Madhubala is the first of the Bollywood actors from what is considered the golden era of Indian film industry to grace the museum in the capital that will be thrown open to the public later this year.
Artists in the UK took six months to create the wax statue of the iconic actress. The statue is sculpted based completely on research as there was no actual reference except clothes and black & white photographs from which the statue was made.
The wax statue is set to feature in the Bollywood section of the museum.Besides Madhubala the museum will also feature Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Asha Bhosle and Shreya Ghoshal.
