Blackpool Meets Bollywood
Kareena Kapoor Wax figure set to be unveiled in Blackpool
KAREENA Kapoor is touring Blackpool!
No, not the actress – but her Madame Tussauds wax figure which will be unveiled in the city next month as part of a new touring exhibition of Bollywood superstars.
Kareena will join fellow Bollywood wax stars Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Blackpool before the tour takes them to attractions throughout the world including London, Hong Kong, Bangkok and sites in Europe and the US.
"It is an honour and a privilege for me to have my wax figure at Madame Tussauds Blackpool and even more so to launch a global Bollywood exhibition,” Kareena says.
“This is a moment of pride for Indian cinema."
The touring Bollywood exhibition is a first within Madame Tussauds, designed to allow fans across the globe the chance to enjoy the fantastic wax figures and meet their favourite celebrities.
A special Bollywood room is being created within Madame Tussauds Blackpool just for this special exhibition.
There is a week-long series of festivities planned in October to welcome the new wax figures to the town and create a fantastic Bollywood experience for all visitors to the resort.
Matthew Titherington, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Blackpool, said: “We know that the UK will be very excited to see Kareena’s new wax figure. It is the first time she has been immortalised in wax and the first time these figures will be grouped together. It is the perfect place to launch our Bollywood World tour with the dedicated Bollywood room and look forward to welcoming her fans to the attraction when the figure goes on display in October.”
