Madame Tussauds is famous for lifelike wax figures of celebrities.

"We are delighted to be announcing that our 22nd Madame Tussauds attraction will be opening in Delhi. Ever since we introduced Amitabh Bachchan as the first Bollywood figure in Madame Tussauds London in 2000, we have seen how Madame Tussauds appeals to the Indian consumer...having a permanent attraction in the heart of the country's capital made perfect sense for the evolution of the Madame Tussauds story," Merlin Entertainments Chief New Openings Officer John Jakobsen said.

The museum will be launched mid-next year in the Regal Cinema at Connaught Place and will be spread over two floors.

UK-based Merlin Enterprises runs 116 attractions in 24 countries and the company will be foraying in the Indian market with the launch of Madame Tussauds Delhi.
