PM Modi gets a wax statue at Madam Tussauds, Twitter cannot cope with it

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 14 February 2017, 5:57 IST

Come April and Madame Tussauds will get a new camera-friendly resident, a wax statue of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The only other Indian Prime Ministers to be thus 'waxed' are Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Well, looks like the baton has finally passed on to the BJP. On his part, Modi said he was 'comforted' to know that this decision by Team Tussauds had been due to 'public opinion and public sentiment'.

With the inclusion of Bollywood celebrities post 2000 - Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Madhuri Dixit, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif - Tussauds is hardly a stranger to Indian faces.

PM Modi's statue will be displayed in Tussauds London, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore museums, so no matter which part of the world the globe-trotting PM might be in, you can always take a selfie.

But honour or not, once Tussauds released a video of the PM's measurements being taken by their team of artists, Twitter just couldn't stop waxing eloquent over it. Take a look, you'll understand why.
