It’s not an uncommon fact that God gives us only a handful of Virat Kohlis or a Shah Rukh Khans. We guess that it’s safe to say that these two people are currently dominating their respective food chains and we guess that it is for this very reason, Kohli will find himself a spot which has already immortalised the Khans and the Bachchan’s of B-Town, which is the Madam Tussauds, Delhi.
Yes, you read that right! Kohli is going to have his very own wax statue and it is going to be placed alongside that of the soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo in the interactive sports section of the wax museum!
Speaking about the same, Virat Kohli shared, “It’s a great honour to be chosen as one of the figures at Madame Tussauds. All thanks to the Madame Tussauds team who were extremely patient during the sitting sessions and for giving me a lifetime memory“
Also, Anshul Jain, General Manager, and Director, Merlin Entertainments India Pvt. Ltd. Said: “We are thrilled to announce the Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli’s figure as the 23rd attraction. He holds the heart and respect of every Indian and a perfect choice to have him as our next Figure.. We are confident that Virat’s wax figure will be a major draw for his fans not only from India but from around the world as he is one of the great cricketers that the world has seen.”
Madame Tussauds expert artists flew in from London to meet Virat Kohli for the sitting, where they took over 200 specific measurements and images to create an authentic figure.
