“As an Indian actor, it is an incredibly special moment to be surrounded by the best of Indian cinema icons at Madame Tussauds Singapore, in this unique Ultimate Film Star Experience. Unveiling my very own wax figure here is definitely a lifetime achievement – it is truly a dream come true. ” said Shahid.

“With all the positive comments and support received for this new Experience, we will continue to work with more and more cinema legends, as well as adding exclusive celebrity content into the zone throughout the year.”
