Cricket legend Kapil Dev unveils his wax figure at New Delhi’s Madame Tussauds

STORY: Indian cricket legend Kapil Dev unveiled his wax figure at New Delhi’s Madame Tussauds museum on Thursday (May 11).

Dev, 58, is considered as one of the greatest cricketers of India. The figure shows the all-rounder in his iconic bowling pose and is reminiscent of India’s historic win in the 1983 World Cup.

Beside Dev, the Delhi branch would also house wax figures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar among other national and international icons.

In January this year, Tussauds unveiled the waxwork of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.

Madame Tussauds was founded in the year 1835 by Marie Tussauds in London. From early works of Marie, Madame Tussauds created an international phenomenon that still remains a famous attraction for millions of visitors every year.

The Delhi branch above the city centre’s historic Regal Cinema is to open its door for the public in June this year.
