On December 18, 2023, actor Ranveer Singh came face-to-face with his new figures, launching in the London and Singapore attractions of the Madame Tussauds Museum.
Recently, Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh met not one, but two, figures of himself at Madame Tussauds! The actor visited the world-famous attraction in London to welcome his two new figures. This is the first time the actor has been immortalised by Madame Tussauds. Guests will be able to meet his new figures at Madame Tussauds’ London and Singapore attractions.
The figure was originally announced in 2019 when the actor received the Madame Tussauds of the Future Award at the IIFAs – the International Indian Film Academy – where it was revealed that he would be joining the star-studded attraction. Singh was involved throughout the creative process and specifically chose the styling for his figures. The London figure pays homage to Ranveer’s culture and heritage with the neon sherwani designed by Manish Arora as part of his wedding celebrations. The outfit includes hundreds of individually sewn embellishments and flamboyant leopard head shoulder detail, tied together with a triple-layered diamond and pearl necklace, and eight large gemstone set rings. The Singapore figure dons a custom tuxedo featuring a velvet blazer with floral embellishments. Designed by Gaurav Gupta and worn by Singh to the Hello! Hall of Fame Awards, it was graciously donated for the figure to wear by the actor himself.
On seeing two of his first-ever figures from the attraction, Singh said, “As a child, my mother first told me about Madame Tussauds. Ever since a young age, I’ve had a fascination for this mythical, magical place called Madame Tussauds and it’s been incredible to see how the journey of life works… What an incredible moment it is for me to be here with my Mum, launching my own figure at Madame Tussauds London. It’s a hugely proud moment for me and for my family. It is a significant achievement to have your figure at Madame Tussauds because the attraction recognises excellence in each respective field, so to be in such an esteemed company feels really wonderful. I feel very happy, very humble, very grateful and very very proud.”
On welcoming the actor to its A-list lineup, a Madame Tussauds London spokesperson said, "Ranveer Singh is not merely an actor but a force of creative dynamism. With a line-up of blockbuster hits and an unwavering commitment to social causes, Ranveer Singh’s influence extends beyond just cinema. His impact is felt not only through the lens of entertainment but also through his dedication to creating a more compassionate and equitable world for all. It’s for this reason that his stardom transcends globally and the launch of two new figures sitting in opposite corners of the world are a testament to his undeniable achievements.”
Singh’s London figure is available for guests to meet in the attraction from Monday, 18 December 2023, as it joins Madame Tussauds London’s star-studded line-up alongside the likes of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Beyonce, Cristiano Ronaldo, Deepika Padukone and 150 other lifelike celebrity figures. His Singapore figure is available for guests to meet from Saturday, 23 December 2023 within the IIFA Awards Experience zone at Madame Tussauds Singapore. He will star alongside other well-known celebrity figures such as Virat Kohli, Karan Johar, Michael Jackson, Priyanka Chopra and many more.
