Actor Mahesh Babu aka Mahesh Ghattamaneni is joining a host of other stars in getting a wax replica of himself made by Madame Tussauds. The news has sent his fans into a tizzy, the same way his movies do. Now, after it was revealed that it would be unveiled soon, his fans are not only eagerly waiting to get a glimpse of it, but also planning how to celebrate it.
Telegu movie fans are known to be excited about every little thing that their favourite movie star is up to, and they would go to any length to show it. So it is no wonder that the unveiling will also be done under heavy security, keeping in mind the huge crowd that is sure to show up.
Mahesh had himself announced in April last year about the statue, taking to his Instagram page to share a picture and captioning it, “Super happy to be a part of the prestigious Madame Tussauds 🙂 🙂 Thanks to the team of artists for their attention to detail. Incredible!”

The statue is, as per reports, going to be unveiled on March 25, and a source on the actor’s team was quoted as saying, “A huge crowd is obviously expected and since it is a public venue, accessibility will be a bit easy. All measures are being taken to ensure there’s no trouble.”
News reports further revealed that the statue will first be shown at Mahesh Babu’s AMB Cinemas at Gachibowli in Hyderabad, where he will unveil it himself. The actor’s presence there will also mean that a bigger crowd will be present.
After the unveiling, the statue will remain there for sometime before it is taken to Madame Tussauds in Singapore where it will be exhibited at the India International Film Festival (IIFA) Awards Experience. This is the first time that a statue is being unveiled outside of the Singapore museum.
