Madhuri's wax statue at Madame Tussauds to come up in March

Mumbai, Feb 5: The wait is finally over as the wax statue of Bollywood's dancing queen Madhuri Dixit will be unveiled at London's Madame Tussauds in March this year.

As the 'Dhak Dhak' girl prepares for a comeback in movies, she will be joining the gallery of wax replicas of Bollywood stars at Madame Tussauds in London on March 7.

"Madame Tussaud's unveiling on March 7th, 2012. C u then! (sic)," an ecstatic Madhuri wrote on twitter.

The announcement about her wax statue was made early January this year.

The 44-year-old is the latest actor in Bollywood to join the bandwagon of stars like Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan to have a wax statue at Madame Tussauds.

It will cost 150,000 pounds to create the statue and will take a team of sculptors and hair, makeup and wardrobe experts to create the wax statue.

Madhuri dominated the industry for about two decades with several hits like 'Tezaab', 'Saajan', 'Khalnayak', 'Ram Lakhan', 'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun', 'Dil To Pagal Hai', 'Devdas' and others.

After marrying doctor Shriram Nene, Madhuri had moved to Denver, US for almost a decade. However, she shifted base to Mumbai last year along with her husband and two sons.
