SRK’s wax statue to be dressed as Fan’s Gaurav
SRK’s wax statue at the famed Madame Tussauds museum in London will be re-dressed as Gaurav, his character in Fan.
The wax pattern will resemble Gaurav in terms of his clothes and look. Not only will the design look like Gaurav, it will actually step out, for the very first time, enthralling fans at the iconic London Eye.
Interestingly, the tourist attraction has also been featured in one of the pictures from the movie.
Speaking around the novelty factor in the motion picture made by Yash Raj Films (YRF), Shah Rukh had earlier said, ‘If you’re looking for novelty, then you should observe out for Fan. It’s a different sort of film, supposed to be a niche... It’s not meant to be a blockbuster releasing ahead of Christmas’.
Speaking about their association, Madame Tussauds London’s General Manager, Edward Fuller, commented, We have a long and solid relationship with the Indian film industry and our Bollywood figures.
He said ‘especially Shah Rukh Khan’s likeness, are hugely popular with guests. We’re delighted the attraction is featured in ‘Fan’ and excited to be celebrating the release of the film by re-dressing Shah Rukh’s figure and taking it to the London Eye for his fans to see and grab a selfie with!’
As forever, here’s another Shah Rukh style unique promotion for his movie.
Madame Tussauds collaborated with the makers of the James Bond franchise during the release of spectra last year. Wax figures of Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig and George Lazenby dressed in Bond-style suits were put up at the museum in 2015.
