SRK all set to get waxed in London

Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan is soon going to join Aishwarya Rai and Amitabh Bachchan at the Madame Tussauds museum in London.

And the progress on getting him there is on in full swing. A few days back, an attraction team from Madam Tussauds visited King Khan's residence in Mumbai.

Once Shah Rukh was home with friend Bobby Khan, the man who brokered the wax work deal, the team started work on his measurements.

Jenni — the main sculptor who has worked on Beyonce Knowles, Aishwarya Rai, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, David Beckham, and Amitabh Bachchan's wax statues — was personally there to do the honours.

Among others present at the Khan residence was Marrie, the chief photographer, who captured everything on her still camera.

"He was made to stand on around platform. More than 200 pictures of his were clicked in different postures," says Bollywood producer Bobby Khan.

Though Shah Rukh is more than happy to be waxed, he still doesn't know where he is going to stand at Tussauds—will he stand next to Hollywood stars like Brad Pitt or his Bollywood companions Ashwarya Rai and Amitabh Bachchan?

As the team from Madam Tussauds continued to capture the essence of Khan, he reminisces what his mother told him years back: "When my mother visited London many years back, she told me that she would have loved to see my wax statue there."
