Unlike the tall claims being made, Bebo's wax statue won't be unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London but in a small English town. Even her look hasn't been finalised

For months on end, we were told that a wax statue of Kareena Kapoor was being prepared for the famous Madame Tussauds in London.

She was going to be immortalised in her Chameli avatar, and her statue would be unveiled on August 15, fortuitously just a day before beau Saif Ali Khan's 41st birthday. As it turns out, not everything is what it seems.

According to sources, the 'Chameli' look has not been finalised and her wax statue won't be displayed in the famous museum, but a new branch somewhere in Blackpool, a small town in north west England.

"Initially, the Kareena camp leaked reports that her wax statue was to be unveiled on August 15.

Now that the date is upon us, they are saying the event has been postponed to October and that the statue might be unveiled in Blackpool, " said a source, adding that no 'Chameli' look was ever finalised.

So far, six Indians have found place at Madame Tussauds, a museum of wax statues.

These include Sachin Tendulkar, Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and early this year, Hrithik Roshan.

A person close to Kapoor requesting anonymity, claimed that while the statue will be unveiled in Blackpool, it will later be transported to the famous museum in London.

"Bebo's statue will be unveiled at a new Madame Tussauds in Blackpool and later transported to London. The idea is to start off a new Madame Tussauds in Blackpool with Bebo's statue, " he said.

On Kapoor's look for the statue, he agreed that none has been finalised.

"Designer Manish Malhotra was given the job of deciding Bebo's look at Madame Tussauds and he gave three options -- her characters in Karan Johar's Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Imtiaz Ali's Jab We Met and Sudhir Mishra's Chameli. But the final look is yet to be decided."

Another friend of Kapoor's appeared angry at the insinuations that she has been generating the stories. "Bebo is not a nobody who needs to plant stories, trying to prove how she is in demand, " she said.
