SYDNEY [AUSTRALIA]: It's time for 'Lights, Camera, Bollywood' at Madame Tussauds Sydney, thanks to former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The wax museum unveiled the actress' statue on Wednesday.

She is one of the most popular and influential celebrities in India and we know she'll be a big hit with Bollywood fans," said, Mark Connolly, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Sydney.

Rai Bachchan, who was last seen at Cannes Film Festival in May, will be standing next to her co-star Shah Rukh Khan.

"The Lights, Camera, Bollywood experience opened in April and is one of the most energetic and loved experiences by our guests. It truly depicts the vibrant life backstage on a Bollywood movie production set and we love seeing the fun that our visitors have when they learn how to master a Bollywood dance routine or star in an iconic film scene, including DDLJ! With the new addition of Rai Bachchan featuring alongside Shah Rukh Khan, we're confident there will be a lot more selfies snapped in the Bollywood zone," said Connolly.

She is only in Sydney until January 2020 so be sure to catch her before she jets back off to Madame Tussauds New York!" he further informed.
