Actor Varun Dhawan will have his first wax statute in Madame Tussauds in Hong Kong. Dhawan will be the fourth personality from India to enter the wax museum after Mahatma Gandhi, Narendra Modi and Amitabh Bachchan, who are currently on display. Dhawan will unveil his likeness in the first quarter of 2018.

"Huge honour. Can't wait to come there and stare down my wax figure. Thank you," Dhawan tweeted on Monday.

Dhawan, who made his acting debut in the 2012 romantic comedy Student Of The Year, has also starred in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2013), Main Tera Hero (2014), ABCD 2 (2015), Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017) and, most recently, in Judwaa 2 (2017).

"It was a great experience to work with Madame Tussauds. I am so excited to get my wax figure in Hong Kong," the actor said in a statement on Madame Tussauds's official website.

A group of skilled Madame Tussauds sculptors had travelled to Mumbai to meet Dhawan and conduct a detailed sitting. More than 200 measurements were taken, and the team also matched the hair and eye colour of the actor. Dhawan worked closely with the team and kept sharing his ideas on the pose of his likeness.

Jenny You, general manager of Madame Tussauds, Hong Kong, said: "Varun Dhawan is one of the most requested figures and we are delighted to be partnering with this Bollywood great actor. Hong Kong is a multicultural metropolis which makes us a unique brand. Visitors can meet both Hollywood, Asian and also Bollywood stars here at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. The worldwide popularity of Bollywood films makes people in Hong Kong increasingly embrace Bollywood culture."
