A DAY after the BJP got a clear mandate, wax artist Chandershekar Parbhakar unveiled a wax statue of BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. Parbhakar had started making it about two months back and has spent more than Rs 30,000 on making it.
“I started making it once I was sure that Modi wave is going to create a history in the country,” he said, unveiling the statue on Saturday.
Already, he has made 50 wax statues. Apart from covering actors Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Shah Rukh Khan, he has also made statues of former prime minister Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and chief minister Parkash Singh Badal.
Parbhakar said he had spoken to the local BJP leaders regarding Modi’s statue. He expressed hope that Modi would come to know about his efforts sooner or later.
