“I love knowing that the artists are now working on every tiny detail and I’m so excited to see the finished result in Singapore!” said Kajol in a press statement.
More than 200 measurements were taken by the group of skilled Madame Tussauds sculpting team that travelled especially to Mumbai to meet with the actress and conduct a detailed sitting process. To ensure a truly authentic representation of Kajol, the team even matched her hair and eye colour.
