In Pics: Kapil Dev Unveils His Wax Statue at Madame Tussauds Delhi

Kapil Dev unveiled his first wax statue for the upcoming Madame Tussauds in Delhi on Thursday. The incredibly detailed figure will be displayed with wax statues of other personalities like Sachin Tendulkar at the 23rd Madame Tussauds museum when it’s launched later in 2017.

The Indian cricket legend’s statue, which has been crafted from over 300 measurements and photographs, has been sculpted in Kapil Dev’s iconic bowling pose from the 1983 World Cup.

I’m honoured to get my wax figure among such icons of the nation at Madame Tussauds Delhi. Receiving this at the age of 58 is a huge credit that furthermore motivates me as an individual to evolve more.
