Sachin's wax model at Madame Tussauds

April 13, 2009

Sachin Tendulkar's waxed model -- that will be up for public view from April 24 at London's Madame Tussauds -- was unveiled at a suburban hotel in Mumbai on Monday.

It is the first instance in 1754 occasions that a celebrity's wax model has been unveiled outside London.

It took the efforts of 20 people, four months and a budget of 150,000 pounds to realise the model.

The museum's officials took about 200 measurements and references from various photographs to achieve perfection. Even Tendulkar attended a sitting in Mumbai for the same.

Come April 24 - the Master Blaster's birthday - and the model will be up in the Sports Zone at Madame Tussauds, alongside the likes of David Beckham and Shane Warne.
