Madame Tussauds Wax Museum Delhi and its Indian Connection with Madame Tussauds :
Former Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi was the first Indian to have the first statue in Madame Tussauds. Amitabh Bachchan was the first Indian Bollywood star in Madame Tussauds London in 2000 since than Madame Tussauds has been taken big attention from India. Now so many celebrities Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Katrina Kaif and Sachin Tendulkar have their statues in Madame Tussauds. The latest movie of Shahrukh Khan ‘Fan’ was the first Indian movie to shoot inside Madame Tussauds.
These many sculptures of Bollywood stars play a vital role for Indian to attract to Madame Tussauds. A big footfall of the Indians to Worldwide Madame Tussauds Museum and result is here now finally India going to have its own Madame Tussauds Museum in New Delhi at Regal Cinema Connaught Place.

I went to Madame Tussauds in England when I was a child. It was a very strange experience! Do you expect it will be popular when it opens?
Hi Jessica, Madame Tussauds is quite popular in Indian people. i work as a travel consultant and so many people ask me to add Madame Tussauds Museum to itinerary.

Wax museums scare the bedazzles out of me!! Have you ever been to one?
Hi Joaquim, still i have not been to any Wax Museum, but i would surely visit this one in Delhi.
Hmmm, I usually avoid the touristy museums because they cost an arm and a leg, but maybe I’ll make an exception! I’m actually heading to India soon, so I may add it to my list!
This is great. I am sure it will attract a good crowd in Delhi!
