PM Modi’s statue will be installed in each location of the museum around Europe and Asia. The museum has called him “hugely important figure in world politics”.
PM Modi said to the museum “Madame Tussauds has crafted figures of very distinguished dignitaries from around the world — how could I regard myself worthy of being alongside them? But when I was informed that your decision had emanated from public opinion and public sentiment, I was comforted’.
“Prime Minister Modi is a hugely important figure in world politics, a position supported by his place in the top 10 of Time Magazine’s Person of the Year List 2015,” said Kieran Lancini, a museum spokesperson.
The artist of Madame Tussauds takes around four months to create one statue, which costs around 150,000 pounds.
