Deepika Padukone recently unveiled her magnificent wax statue in London at the famous Madame Tussauds museum. She went live on her Instagram and gave her fans a sneak peek of what the statue looks like. The unveiling was attended by Ranveer Singh and both their parents. During the Instagram live, Ranveer playfully asked if he could take the statue home with him.

He also shared a photo of himself checking out the statue on Instagram with a hilarious caption that read, “DP 2.0! Original toh mere paas hai. #twomuchtohandle”

Deepika’s sister Anisha Padukone’s also had a cheeky comment to make at her expense. The younger Padukone posted a picture of Deepika with the statue and captioned it as, “As if one of her was not enough. Double trouble”.

A beaming Deepika Padukone dedicated the statue to her foundation Live Laugh Love that focuses on the importance of mental health. She said,

“As a little girl, I was a very curious kid, for me, purpose is something that is very important. However, big or small, whatever I am doing in my life, purpose and why we do what we do is very important to me. After I got a call from Madame Tussauds, I thought what is the purpose of this, why are we doing this, or what is it that my fans will remember me for, remember my figure for, what is it that I would like to leave behind, and the cause of mental health is very close to my heart, it is something that I am extremely passionate about. I said that’s it, I would like for my fans when they see my figure I hope it reminds them of someone who did something for the cause of mental illness, who worked towards creating awareness and destigmatizing mental illness. I hope that it gives people a sense of upliftment and a sense of hope. I hope that message comes through”

The actor had announced her Madame Tussauds wax status in 2018. “I think Madame Tussauds is iconic in so many ways, you know it actually feels great to be a part of that,” said Padukone while making the announcement on Facebook.
