Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor has joined other celebrities at the IIFA Awards Experience at Madame Tussauds Singapore. Ranbir's wax figure showcases his character Kabir "Bunny" Thapar from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - one of the highest-grossing Indian movies made.
To celebrate the arrival of Ranbir's figure, Dance Embassy gave a Bollywood dance workshop within the IIFA Awards Experience. Lavania Hajji from Dance Embassy created a dance workout on Badtameez Dill.
"I really liked the setting, especially the star-studded audience around us. Besides Ranbir, other Bollywood legends such as Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Aishwarya Rai and Amitabh Bachchan were there. It was quite intimidating. Besides the workout, we also danced in front of the AR dance screen whereby you will appear on stage surrounded by Bollywood dancers. It was so much fun," said Meenal Badiani, one of the dancers.
Ranbir's wax figure will be featured at Madame Tussauds Singapore for a limited period. It will then travel to other Madame Tussauds across the region.
Craig Connor, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Singapore, said: "It is great to have the figure of Ranbir Kapoor in Singapore, he will attract the younger crowd. Madame Tussauds will continue to invest in the ultimate Bollywood experience by adding newcomers and old-time favourites to the collection in the near future".
The IIFA Awards Experience in Singapore is an interactive experience, where guests can re-live the glamour of the Bollywood awards ceremony. They can walk the green carpet, give a speech at the acceptance stage, be on the cover of the IIFA magazine and dance in front of an augmented reality dance screen.
