Ash wax model to grace NY Tussauds


A wax model of actress Aishwarya Rai, the global face of Indian film industry, will open to public view at Madame Tussauds wax museum in Time Square here on August 15, when India celebrates 60th year of independence.

“The unveiling ceremony will feature a 15-minute performance by Bollywood dance group from the city,” Rosemary Preta, director of marketing of the museum, said. The museum has scheduled the ceremony on India ‘s Independence Day, which was also demanded by her fans here, Preta said.

“Rai, a former Miss World, is internationally known now.”

Rai’s model will be placed in the Opening Night Party section of the museum. The museum has borrowed the model for six weeks from the parent Madame Tussauds in London.
