Amitabh Bachchan Has Arrived At Madame Tussauds Sydney

From October to December only, visitors to Madame Tussauds Sydney have the chance to get up close and personal with the indisputable ‘King’ of Indian Cinema in an opulent Bollywood set draped with gold and Indian textiles.

Located within the A-List celebrity zone, stars including Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie will be joining Amitabh and attending the Bollywood party which is set to have everyone practicing their best Bollywood dance moves.

Dressed in a stylish long black velvet coat adorned by large gold buttons and complimented by white pants and black polished shoes, Amitabh’s wax figure is presented in a standing position, with his hands gently clasped together. The figure features a perfectly manicured white goatee and brown hair with silver flecks, while his eyes look thoughtfully into the distance.

A famed actor, producer and presenter, Amitabh Bachchan made his name from Bollywood movies in the ‘70s like Anand (1971), Zanjeer (1973) and Deewar (1975). He has, to his credit, three National Film Awards and twelve Filmfare awards.

Bachchan had at least one hit movie every year for fifteen consecutive years from 1972 to 1986. Bachchan has lent his voice to or starred in over 100 Indian movies. In 2007, he starred in his first English-language movie titled The Last Lear. It was premiered at Toronto International Film Festival and is now regarded as one of his best performances of all time.

In addition to this, Amitabh was, for the first time in the history of Madame Tussauds, nominated to be portrayed by fans in a world-wide internet poll. Amitabh undertook a sitting and is portrayed from the year 2000.

Quinn Clarke, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Sydney is delighted to welcome Amitabh Bachchan to Sydney and remarked, “With his lifetime of professional achievements, it is nothing but an honour for Madame Tussauds Sydney to serve as the temporary home for the wax figure of Amitabh Bachchan”.

Clarke continued, “Amitabh adds even more colour and interactivity to our attraction, and the amazingly lifelike wax figure has already been extremely popular with our guests, particularly the local Indian community. The Bollywood industry is one that is growing exponentially and we are certainly very proud to be able to offer our guests a taste of it right here in Sydney”.

Madame Tussauds Sydney is located on Sydney’s renowned Darling Harbour and is the place to get on stage with the stars, rub shoulders with the most powerful politicians and challenge your favourite sports heroes. Amitabh will join the unique line-up of celebrities already featured at Madame Tussauds Sydney including Captain Cook, Sir Donald Bradman, Albert Einstein, Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp and Lady Gaga.
