Baahubali actor Prabhas to get a wax statue at Madame Tussauds
Tollywood star Prabhas becomes the first Telugu actor to join an exclusive global club, as his wax statue will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds, Bangkok. His wax statue will be in character as Amrendra from Bahubali.

The news was confirmed by Baahubali director SS Rajamouli on the micro blogging site Twitter. He said, "Very happy to announce that Madame Tussauds is making a wax statue of our Prabhas. First South Indian to be honored thus." 

He also said that the statue will be unveiled at Bangkok in March 2017 and subsequently will be toured all over the world.

After Mahatma Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's wax statues, Prabhas will be third Indian celebrity to get this privilege.   

Noppadon Prapimpunt, Head of Bangkok Cluster for Merlin Entertainments (Thailand), and General Manager of Madame Tussauds Bangkok said that this addition is being done in the museum, because after Baahubali: The Beginning in 2015, Prabhas became one of the most searched actors on Google and the museum received many requests from his fans from around the world for creation of his figure. "Prabhas is definitely in the spotlight," said Prapimpunt.

As per the reports, Prabhas had a meeting with Madame Tussauds' artists at Hyderabad where 350 photos and measurements were taken of the star to make a flawless statue.

Prabhas while talking about this development said, "I am really happy to have been selected by Madame Tussauds' and I think this was only possible because of fans. I am grateful for their unconditional love and support. I am also thankful to my guru, SS Rajamouli, for the opportunity to work on this fantastic project Baahubali," reported TOI.
