The 'Bang Bang' actress was chosen after a contest in which fans were asked to vote for the next Bollywood actress for the statue. The fans chose Katrina over competitors Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.



Madame Tussauds recently posted on its website, “Now, almost fifteen years and seven wax figures later, the fans have once again decided on who they want to see here - after a very close contest. Katrina Kaif will be the next Bollywood start to join our line up. We are delighted she has agreed to work with us to create her wax likeness and look forward to revealing the figure to the public in Spring 2015”.



The website also revealed few pictures of Katrina during her look session with the artists and sculptors from Madame Tussauds. It also added a video in which Katrina has thanked her fans for choosing her for the Madame Tussauds wax statue.



The museum's Twitter account said “Katrina Kaif announced as the next bollywood wax figure at Madame Tussauds London”, adding that hundreds of exact measurements are taken to ensure an accurate likeness.

Excited Katrina said, “"It's an amazing honour to be asked and to be featured alongside icons of the Indian film industry."

She will be joining her ‘Bang Bang’ co-star Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai, Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. The wax figure will be unveiled in 2015.
