Virat Kohli Invites Fans at Wax Statue Unveiling; Warner Pulls His Leg

New Delhi: They might be intense rivals on the field, but India skipper Virat Kohli and Australia opener David Warner share a cordial equation off it. And with Kohli inviting fans to come and click selfies with his wax statue at Madame Tussauds in the Capital on Wednesday, Warner cheekily responded and asked if he could rather get a real picture with the run-machine.

Taking to Instagram, Kohli wrote: “Come 6th of June, let’s play statue! 😉 Excited to be at #MadameTussauds 😃

Kohli's wax figure will be the latest addition at the Madame Tussauds Delhi as he is set to join other sports icons there. Kohli's wax figure will join other sporting heroes including Sachin Tendulkar, Kapil Dev and Lionel Messi.

Kohli's journey has been phenomenal, from his first-class debut in 2006 to captaining the Indian cricket team, winning the Under-19 World Cup on route. With his unbeatable performances, Kohli has won several accolades including the Arjuna award, ICC World Cricketer of the year and three BCCI international cricketer of the year awards. He has also been honoured with the Padma Shri by the Government of India.

Kohli met with Madame Tussauds' team for the sitting process, where a group of talented world renowned artists flown in from London took over 200 measurements to create an authentic figure. Talking about his inclusion in Madame Tussauds Delhi, an excited Kohli said: "It's a great honour to be chosen as one of the figures at Madame Tussauds. All thanks to the Madame Tussauds team who were extremely patient during the sitting sessions and for giving me a lifetime memory."

Madame Tussauds Delhi is an attraction that portrays the fascinating world of Bollywood and Hollywood, renowned sportspersons, historical and political personalities under one roof, through planned themes and interactive areas.
