After the announcement that Madame Tussauds would open a museum in New Delhi this year, art critics, fans tourists and Indians, especially Delhiites are waiting anxiously for the doors to open to witness the art finesse.

Aamir Khan Rejected the Offer
Out of the three Khans who rule the Bollywood industry, two have got immortalised in Madame Tussauds wax museum London. Another Khan – Aamir aka the perfectionist could have completed the Khan trio at the museum, but known for doing things differently, Aamir declined the offer saying that he was not interested in getting immortalised rather he wants people to see him through his films and nothing else. We guess Madame Tussauds Delhi will also not have Aamir Khan’s wax statue.
