On Sridevi's birth anniversary on Tuesday, Madame Tussauds Singapore dropped the best news for fans of the legendary actress. Sridevi will be honoured with her first ever wax figurine at Madame Tussauds Singapore, which will be unveiled in September this year. In a tweet on Tuesday, the coveted museum tweeted to announce that Sridevi's wax figurine will be an "exclusive addition": "As a tribute to the Bollywood icon, we are pleased to announce that we will be launching her wax figure in early September this year! Her figure is one of its kind in the world, and it's an exclusive addition to Madame Tussauds Singapore!" In addition to the wax double, there will also be a special memorial wall for fans: "There will be a special memorial wall where you can leave your tribute messages, and many more!"
While we'll have to wait till September for the big reveal, Madame Tussauds Singapore shared glimpses of Sridevi's figurine on Twitter. It appears to be styled on Sridevi's Hawa Hawai avatar from Mr India. Here, take a look:
