This time, Bib B's wax figure has found its place at newly opened 'Bollywood Zone' in Madame Tussauds Wax Museum at Time Square, New York.

The unveiling of the sculpture was done amidst 'Bollywood Bash' in which a troupe of Bollywood Axion dancers performed on the popular number 'Jai Ho'.

The 'Bollywood Zone' has been launched with the intention to enable visitors to have a feel of a Bollywood film set with the renowned star of Hindi film industry.

Janine DiGioacchino, general manager of Madame Tussauds, New York, said, "We are thrilled to welcome Amitabh Bachchan to his new home in Madame Tussauds."

"Bachchan is a Bollywood film legend and we could think of no better figure to open the new Bollywood Zone with, which is an exciting addition to our Times Square attraction," Janine added.

Wearing a traditional black sherwani suit with a gold and black scarf draped around his neck, Big B's statue becomes the first effigy to be part of Madame Tussauds New York's Bollywood zone.

This segment was formed after the requests of numerous visitors.

At present, Big B is in China, that's why he was not able to be a part of the launch ceremony.

Moreover, the brightly-coloured, fully-interactive Bollywood Zone will features a replica of the Taj Mahal, videos of authentic Indian dancers and a photo area where visitors can pose as Bollywood stars.
