‘It’s a legacy that I will leave behind. And not only my fans today but for generations to come will take a look at this and will say ‘Oh, this is one of the actresses’ and so it’s an honour, definitely and like they say imitation is the best form of flattery so it’s all very flattering that I have a statue here, a wax figure.’
The star of films such as Tezaab, Ram Lakhan, Sajan, Hum Aapke Hain Koun!, Dil To Pagal Hai and Devdas, Madhuri is the sixth Bollywood celebrity to have a wax work model made of her and only the second female star following Mrs Rai-Bachchan.
