Thiruvananthapuram: After London’s Madame Tussauds, Dubai will have a wax museum to be set up by an Indian sculptor displaying wax figures of eminent personalities from various walks of life.
Sunil Kandaloor, who created the first wax museum in India at the ‘Baywatch´ theme park in Kanyakumari, will open his new venture “Celebrity International” in the Gulf nation.
“The wax figures will be shipped to Dubai within two days and exhibited first at the Indian pavilion at the Dubai Shopping festival from 24January,” Kandaloor told PTI here after popular actor Sreenivasan unveiled his own statue at a function in the press club.
Sreenivasan’s statue will be part of the exhibition in Dubai. Twelve wax statues have already been sculpted by Kandaloor for the museum, to be set up in Dubai.
Two or three places have been identified in Dubai for the museum, which will initially require 2,000 sq ft space, he said.
