Jaipur Wax museum has recently unveiled the wax statue of none other than Superstar Rajnikanth. Located at Nahargarh Fort, Jaipur Wax Museum is the only international-level wax museum in India. With the addition of the new wax figure, the value of the total number of statutes has reached 36.
The statue weighs 55 kgs and stands tall at 5.9 inches. It has been created in 3 months’ time by the joint work of Wang Ping and Susanta Ray. The look of the statue is inspired from his film Paadyappa that was released in 1999. It has been placed right next to that of Amitabh Bachchan.
The founder of the museum Anoop Srivastav said that the decision was made after several requests from tourists, especially from Tamil Nadu, who wished to see the statue of Rajnikanth at the museum. Reportedly, the wax figures of stars like Shahrukh and Salman will also be installed.
Earlier, the statue of Hockey Player Sandeep Singh was unveiled at the Jaipur wax museum. He was also chosen for the honor on the basis of suggestions and feedback from visitors. Besides, he has had an inspiring life story that is admired by all. He was accidentally hit by a bullet after which doctors gave up on him.
Other than the personalities mentioned above, there are many more icons whose wax figures have been installed at the museum like Bhagat Singh, Mahatma Gandhi, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, Kalpana Chawla, and Rabindranath Tagore.
