Madhubala Immortalized at Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds, New Delhi unveiled the most stunning wax statue of evergreen actress in presence of her sister Mrs. Madhur Bhushan. The actress has been styled in her most admired character of ‘Anarkali’ from the 1960 classic Mughal-E-Azam.
“I’m honoured that Tussauds Delhi has remembered my sister and created such a life-like figure” said Madhubala’s sister Mrs. Madhur Bhushan as the unveiling in Delhi.
The figure, which has been built with the help of a number of artists, involved extensive research including meeting the family members and studying the photos and videos available of the actor.
Regarded as the “The Venus of Indian Cinema”, Madhubala received wide recognition for her performances in films like Mahal (1949), Amar (1954), Mr and Mrs ’55 (1955), Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958), Mughal-E-Azam (1960) and Barsaat Ki Raat (1960).
Madhubala died at the age of 36 due to congenital heart disease in 1969. Her portrayal of Anarkali in K Asif’s Mughal-E-Azam remains as her most iconic roles in Hindi cinema.
Wax figures of cricket icon Kapil Dev, singer Asha Bhosle and Shreya Ghoshal have already been unveiled by the museum, which is expected to open to public later this year.
