Anushka Sharma comes face-to-face with her new wax statue at Madame Tussauds

What's up with that smile, though?

By ELLE team  November 21st, 2018

Having your likeness replicated in wax is a big deal for any Bollywood celebrity. But what if the statue goes horribly, horribly wrong? Remember poor Ranveer Singh, whose wax statue looks more like Barbie’s Ken than himself? Or Katrina Kaif, whose statue (at best) resembles a generic Caucasian model from a Bollywood movie? Thankfully for Anushka Sharma, who just got her statue at Madame Tussauds in Singapore, the future doesn’t look so bleak. (Read: your Instagram selfies with her wax statue will not be trolled.)

Anushka unveiled the statue at Madame Tussauds in Singapore, and obviously couldn’t resist posing with her gorgeous (but wax) self.

Nothing less than couture for the wax statue, of course. Anushka’s statue is dressed in a stunning one-shoulder shimmering gown from designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock.

What’s more, you can let Anushka’s statue take the selfie, thanks to its interactive feature.

The only aspect that looks kinda off is her smile… unlike these celebrity wax statues that will give you nightmares. 

Celebrity wax statues that went horribly wrong:


Aren't there any kind of laws that prevent the creation of blasphemous works of art?

Ellen DeGeneres

We apologise in advance for the image of the world's most liked talk show host that cannot be unseen. 

Jennifer Garner

If the clearly marked sign at the Hollywood Waxworks in Los Angeles didn't declare this to be Jennifer Garner, we'd never have made the connection on our own. 

Aishwarya Rai

The stern expression on her face or the awkward mid-dance pose, take your pick.

Chris Hemsworth

The blonde hair that hangs limply down a face that's missing the chiselled features of Chris Hemsworth is just the tip of everything that is wrong with this figure. 

Selena Gomez

The Kill 'Em With Kindness singer's wax figure would be appropriate for the Bride of Chuckysequel.

Oprah Winfrey

The problem with this figure is not that it doesn't resemble Oprah. The problem lies with the fact that it makes her look like a terrifying other dimension version of herself.

Kim Kardashian

You may argue that Kween K looks like a wax statue in real life. Which is what makes this wax statue fail even more surprising.

Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu

This deserves a special place in wax figure hell for the horrifying recreation of Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu in the classic Charlie's Angels pose.

Shah Rukh Khan

Even if you're not a huge Shah Rukh Khan fan, you have to admit that the wax figure is a grave injustice to the star.

Katrina Kaif

Katrina Kaif's wax figure isn't as bad as some of the others on this list. But it fails to capture the Baar Baar Dekho actress' distinct features and ends up looking like a generic Caucasian model from a Bollywood dance-off video.

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara might look super excited about her wax twin but we will never look at the Modern Family star the same way again. 

Ranveer Singh

Ranveer Singh skipped the unveiling ceremony of his first ever wax statue at Musée Grévin in Paris, and do you blame him for wanting to put at least a continent between himself and this Annabelle-esque wax replica? While the 32-year-old worked off the ghosts with a late night ride with Deepika Padukone in his new Aston Martin, the internet understandably went up in arms on his behalf.
