As a tribute to iconic Bollywood star Sridevi, Madame Tussauds Singapore on Wednesday unveiled a wax figure in presence of her husband Boney Kapoor and daughters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor. Boney Kapoor had earlier tweeted, “Sridevi lives forever in not just our hearts but also in the hearts of millions of her fans.
The wax figure is modelled on Sridevi’s iconic number Hawa Hawai from Kapoor’s production venture Mr India. The family posed alongside Sridevi’s statue post the inauguration. Janhvi Kapoor wore a red gown at the unveiling ceremony, and Khushi was seen in an off-shoulder silver bodice gown. While Janhvi went for red lips and nude make-up, Khushi tied her hair in a sleek ponytail.

“It was a privilege to recreate such a legendary star in close collaboration with her family,” said Lizzie Parkinson, Costumier from Merlin Magic Making team in the UK. “What made this project particularly challenging and interesting was the recreation of her outfit. Her crown, cuffs, earrings and dress brooch were 3D-printed and went through numerous tests to achieve the level of detail needed. It was a joy to see everyone’s work come together and we look forward to unveiling the figure soon,” she added.
