During a live session, Deepika spoke about her wax figure. She said, “It’s an amazing feeling, to be honest. It’s fun and exciting. And in a way, I think I feel a lot of gratitude as well when you give back to your fans.”
For Deepika, unveiling her wax statue was like going back in time. “It’s a nostalgic moment in a way because the first and last time I ever went there was as a little girl with my family. Just yesterday when we were having lunch together, my mother said that she came here 35 years ago and she never imagined that she will have a daughter who will someday make it to the Madame Tussauds. We are here together as a family and it feels surreal.” stated the actor glowing with pride.
