Late legendary actor Sridevi’s wax statue was unveiled by her family at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum on September 4th whilst going live on Instagram and Facebook for her die-hard fans across the world. The idea was conceived by the museum.
The statue is modelled on the attire she sports in the 90s hit song ‘Hawa Hawai’ from Mr. India which was produced by her husband Boney Kapoor. Her daughters Khushi and Janhvi were present at the museum to unveil the wax statue.
We are honored to have Sridevi’s family, Mr @boneykapoor and their daughters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor together with their close friends and relatives at the unveiling of Sridevi’s wax figure at the Ultimate Film Star Experience. #MTSGSridevi #MTSG #MadameTussasudsSG pic.twitter.com/J4G9jOMk0R

“My family and I continue to be overwhelmed by the respect and love that has come my wife Sridevi’s way more so after she passed away. But an honour such as this makes it abundantly evident that she lives on through her work. She was my wife and I love her beyond imagination but I also very much respected her art, the passion, and dedication with which she committed herself to her work. I hope that her figure at the Madame Tussauds will serve as a reminder of the legacy she leaves behind,” Boney Kapoor said at the event.
Sridevi was recently posthumously honoured with the TITAN Reginald F Lewis Film Icon Award at the Cannes Film Festival, 2019.
She passed away at the age of 54 in February 2018 due to drowning, in Dubai.
