In the clip, we see the late actor’s statue being given finishing touches. It also seems that the figure will be modelled on her hugely popular look in the song Hawa Hawai from Mr India.
Recently, Janhvi Kapoor was clicked leaving for Singapore.
A team of 20 artists worked with Sridevi’s family over five months to replicate her expressions, make-up and the iconic outfit. “It was a privilege to recreate a legendary star in close collaboration with her family,” said Lizzie Parkinson, costumier from Merlin Magic Making team in the UK.
“Recreating Sridevi’s outfit was particularly challenging. Her crown, cuffs, earrings and dress brooch were 3D-printed, and went through numerous tests to achieve the level of detail needed”, Lizzie added.
Placed at a Mr. India set in the Ultimate Film Star Experience (UFSE) zone, the figure will be accompanied by a special memorial wall where Sridevi’s fans can leave their tributes. Lucky fans selected from Madame Tussauds Singapore’s social media pages will be able to witness the unveiling of the star’s wax figure along with the family.
