Tollywood star Prabhas will have wax figure immortalized at Madame Tussauds in Bangkok. Prabhas is the first south Indian actor to have his statue at the prestigious museum. After PM Narendra Modi's wax statue that was installed in April 2016, Prabhas would be the third Indian personality who will stand tall at the museum.
Baahubali director SS Rajamouli took to Twitter to break the news. “Very happy to announce that Madame Tussauds is making a wax statue of our PRABHAS… First South Indian to be honoured thus,” he tweeted.
36 year old Prabhas wax statue will be unveiled next year in March. “The statue will be unveiled at Bangkok in March 2017 and subsequently will be toured all over the world,” Rajamouli added.
Prabhas underwent a sitting in Hyderabad with Madame Tussauds artists, where 350 photos and measurements were taken of the star to enable a truly flawless re-creation of his likeness. He will be depicted as his character Amarendra Baahubali and will be seen in his battle armor at Madame Tussauds Bangkok. Prabhas who turned into a national star after the release of the film carries a huge fan base and popularity amongst the audiences
