Salman Khan to be immortalized in New York

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will join fellow stars like Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan in the “Bollywood Zone” of wax figures at Madame Tussauds museum in New York Aug 2.

Salman Khan, who burst onto the scene with his award-performance in “Maine Pyar Kiya in 1989”, is one of Bollywood’s most bankable actors.

His latest film, “Bodyguard”, has become the second highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time. In 2004, People magazine named Khan the seventh best-looking man in the world.

“Salman Khan is one of Bollywood’s most enduring and recognizable stars,” said Bret Pidgeon, general manager of Madame Tussauds New York. “Bollywood exploded on the American pop culture scene several years ago and has become one of our most exciting entertainment categories.”

Madame Tussauds New York’s Bollywood Zone is a brightly-coloured, fully-interactive area that includes a replica of the Taj Mahal, videos of authentic Indian dancers and a photo area where visitors can pose with Bollywood stars, all designed to re-create the experience of being on a Bollywood film.

Over the coming years, Madame Tussauds plans to expand the area to include figures of other prominent Bollywood stars.

Khan’s figure, on loan for three months from Madame Tussauds London, was launched in January 2008, after Khan beat nine other Indian mega-stars – including Madhuri Dixit, Hrithik Roshan, Lata Mangeshkar and Abhishek Bachchan – in an August 2007 public poll to choose the “Next Bollywood Star” that would get a wax likeness.

Khan personally chose and donated the black top and denim jeans for his wax figure.

  • @tejas: u r a nonsense. srk is g*y & sanki guy. Salman rockz. Salman is the most enduring & recognized star. Salman rockz. Salman is the biggest superstar of Bollywood. With so much negativity around the media & with lots of ups & down SALMAN has always been there. It shows his star power. Coz public Loves Salman. Nobody can harm Salman. Coz he is GOD’s own child. Love u sallu. U rock. U rock. U always thrash ur critics. GOD bless you

  • This is just a show off.Madame Tussauds bollywood zone will always remain incomplete bcoz the man with the MIDAS touch, the perfectionist, one of the biggest star of bollywood n the undisputed best actor of bollywood “AAMIR KHAN” has refused to make his wax statue bcoz he don’t like show offs.

  • @sachin11,
    midas touch sirf sallu aur srk ko hain, aamir ke film acche script k bajase chalti hain, ek ordinary film ko aamir kabhi nahi hit kara sakti.

  • Wax statues,fake awards dont make super stars its the kriszma and skills.Time will show who is better.Within a year or two whole scnerio will be kristal clear.Next two movies of all top stars will be tie breaker.

  • salman hritik se nahi jeet sakta hritik second par and salman fourth par hai hritik ke samne bow your head baby salman
