Shah Rukh Khan can't help but be in the news. The latest buzz is that he is headed for The Land of The Rising Sun!
No, he isn't quitting town on account of his team's another dismal performance in the recently concluded IPL.
Instead his waxwork will be making its way from the London Madame Tussaud's to the one in Hong Kong.
SRK's statue in London will be loaned to the Hong Kong wax museum for a period of three months. Japan sees a lot of
Indian tourists this time of the year. The number has gone up in the last two years.
The keepers of the Hong
Kong branch thought it would be good idea to have a Bollywood celebrity at the museum. A source told us that Bret
Pidgeon, the General Manager was delighted to have Khan join the attraction.
So the star will join the likes of
Jackie Chan, Harrison Ford and Johnny Depp in for three months. His waxwork will be on display at the World
Premiere section in the museum until July 21.
Shah Rukh's wax statue was installed at the London Madam Tussauds on 3rd April 2007. The man also has a place in
the US counterpart of the museum.
He is the first Bollywood star to be inducted into Hollywood museum
which boasts of wax figures of celebrities like Audrey Hepburn, Clark Gable, Nicole Kidman, Johnny Depp, Alfred
Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Beyonce and soccer star David Beckham. And now his London figurine will travel to Hong
Kong as well.
Incidentally, the Hong Kong Tussaud's had displayed the wax figure of iconic actor Amitabh
Bachchan last year. Is this another case of SRK following where Big B leads?
