A wax museum in Ludhiana is making news on the Internet.

While India excitedly saw its first Madame Tussauds wax museum open in New Delhi last December, eerie wax statues from Prabhakar’s Wax Museum in Punjab have now left Twitter users gasping for air.

On Sunday, news agency ANI reported about 52 wax statues installed at the Ludhiana museum and shared some photos.

The photos showed wax statues of Barack Obama, Mother Teresa, Sachin Tendulkar, APJ Abdul Kalam, Salman Khan among others.

Here's a side-by-side comparison of the person and their wax statues.

Michael Jackson or Mangal Pandey?

This guy knows it.

The museum named as Prabhakar's Wax Museum was set up in 2005 at Chandra Shekhar Prabhakar's home in Model Town.

In 2000, Prabhakar visited Madame Tussauds and decided to open his own wax museum.

The reason why his wax statues don't match the standards of the world famous London counterpart?

"At Madame Tussauds wax museum, they have access to celebrities and they make their statues from measurements taken from real faces and figures. But I make these statues from single dimension pictures, which is a challenging job. The museum is my contribution within my limited resources," said Prabhakar to TOI.
