Madame Tussauds hosted a Bollywood Bash at Times Square in New York City to unveil the wax figure of Indian film's legendary star Amitabh Bachchan and a new Bollywood Zone.

'We are thrilled to welcome Amitabh Bachchan to his new home in Madame Tussauds,' said Janine DiGioacchino, General Manager of Madame Tussauds New York. 'Bachchan is a Bollywood film legend and we could think of no better figure to open the new Bollywood Zone, which is an exciting addition to our Times Square attraction.'

CHECK OUT : Big B has done it again

Five Bollywood Axion dancers, dressed in colorful Lehenga skirts, performed and taught 20 middle school students a traditional Indian dance at the 'Bollywood bash' and performed in honor of Bachchan's new wax likeness. Bachchan's figure is dressed in a traditional black Sherwani suit with a gold and black scarf draped around his neck. It is the first figure to be part of Madame Tussauds New York's all-new Bollywood Zone. The brightly-coloured, fully-interactive area includes the 'Taj Mahal', videos of authentic Indian dancers all designed to re-create the experience of being on a Bollywood film set with Bachchan. Over the coming years, Madame Tussauds plans to expand the area to include figures of other prominent Bollywood stars.
