Boney Kapoor had earlier tweeted, “Sridevi lives forever in not just our hearts but also in the hearts of millions of her fans.

Sridevi’s wax figure is the only one of its kind in the world, and an exclusive addition to Madame Tussauds Singapore’s collection. Created posthumously, a team of 20 skilled artists worked closely with the family over the course of five months to replicate her pose, expressions, make-up and iconic outfit, read it’s an official letter.

“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.
