The ever so resplendent beauty, the epitome of grace, yesteryear’s actress, Madhubala, has bewitched one and all across the globe in not just in her own lifetime, but her legacy continues to live. Not just on silver screen, a life-size wax figure has been unveiled at Madame Tussauds, Delhi.
Her character has been inspired from her divine portrayal of ‘Anarkali’ from the film ‘Mughal-e-Azam’.
The unveiling of the wax figure was done with much fan-fare.
Madhur Brij, younger sister of the late Bollywood actress, who was also the part of the launch shared her feelings, “We are overwhelmed to know that Madhubala’s figure would be part of the Madame Tussauds Delhi. This figure would allow her admirers to cherish the golden era of cinema and once again see her beauty. We are extremely thankful to the Madame Tussauds team for creating such a beautiful depiction of Madhubala.”
