Merlin Entertainments, a main guest attraction operator on Wednesday said it will open a branch of the world-acclaimed wax historical Museum Madame Tussauds here in mid-2017.
Madame Tussauds is set to debut in India in June, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan and American pop star Lady Gaga ‘s statues as some of the star attractions.
Madame Tussauds is renowned for similar wax figures of famous people.
“We are charmed to declare that our 22nd Madame Tussauds attraction will open in Delhi. Ever Since we presented Amitabh Bachchan as the first Bollywood figure in Madame Tussauds London in 2000, we have seen how Madame Tussauds appeals to the Indian consumer…having a lasting fascination in the heart of the nation’s capital seemed well and good for the evolution of the Madame Tussauds story,” Merlin Entertainments Chief New Openings Officer John Jakobsen said.
The historical center will be launched the mid-next year from now in the Regal Cinema at Connaught Place and will be spread more than two stories.
UK-based Merlin Enterprises runs 116 attractions in 24 nations and the organization will be foraying in the Indian market with the launch of Madame Tussauds Delhi.
“The feel and design of the museum will be connected to Delhi,” said Anshul Jain, general manager of Merlin Entertainment in India.
