Team India’s skipper Virat Kohli’s wax statue was unveiled at the Madame Tussauds museum in New Delhi on Wednesday. But just after the day statue had to be taken away because of damage.
When the statue was unveiled Kohli appreciated the efforts of the organisers and said: “I sincerely appreciate the efforts and incredible work undergone in making my figure. Thanks to Madame Tussauds for choosing me for this lifetime experience. I am grateful to my fans for their love and support.”
“This experience is going to be stored in the fond memories of my life…now waiting to see the fan reactions,” Kohli said in a statement issued by Madame Tussauds.
However, on Thursday the statue was damaged and had to be taken away for the repair. An official at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Delhi has now confirmed to NDTV that it had been repaired and was now ready for visitors. “Yes, it was damaged. But now the statue has been rectified,” the official told NDTV.com.
“Kohli’s statue ear was damaged due to some reason. We have fixed it immediately and fans are most welcome to visit the museum to take the photos with the India captain’s statue,” the official said.
Madame Tussauds Delhi is a place that portrays the statues of Bollywood, Hollywood, sportspersons, historical and political personalities under one roof.
