Mumbai, Apr 14: Sachin Tendulkar's wax statue that is set to be displayed in Madame Tussaud's on his birthday, April 24 was unveiled in Mumbai on Monday, Apr 13.
Tendulkar's wax-figure was unveiled in Mumbai on Monday in his presence, besides his wife Anjali, son Arjun and daughter Sara.
Tendulkar will be featured in a typical celebratory 'on the pitch' pose after scoring a century, dressed in cricket whites.
"I am very proud to be the first Indian player at Madame Tussauds. I am very happy that this will be launched at the wax museum on my birthday. I think that my contribution to my country till now has been appreciated and this is a reflection of my contribution," said the Master Blaster.
Tendulkar will be the first Indian sports personality to be unveiled at Tussauds, although the museum features wax statues of many Bollywood actors and Indian politicians. He will be placed next to other cricketing giants such as retired West Indies batsman Brian Lara and Australian spinner Shane Warne.
