Sachin Tendulkars wax-statue unveiled in Mumbai

Indians have long believed no one holds a candle to Sachin Tendulkar and now the master batsman is having his image cast in wax at Madame Tussauds in London.

Mumbai, Apr 14 : Indians have long believed no one holds a candle to Sachin Tendulkar and now the master batsman is having his image cast in wax at Madame Tussauds in London.

Tendulkar's image will go up at the famous waxwork museum on April 24 on his birthday, next to other cricketing greats such as retired West Indies batsman Brian Lara and Australian spinner Shane Warne.

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.

He had a sitting with a team that travelled to Mumbai to capture a catalogue of reference photographs and over 200 precise measurements.

Tendulkar, while posing with his mirror image, said that the wax figure lacked flesh and blood.

Tendulkar also expressed pleasure of being the first Indian sports player to be immortalised in wax.

"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."

Liz Edwards, official spokesperson of Madame Tussauds, said that Tendulkar was missed by many of their visitors.

"We wanted to put Tendulkar in the attraction now because he is iconic sports star. It's a huge honour to be immortalised in wax. Sachin's reaction since we asked him to come to the attraction and be part for it the whole process was so exciting that we knew it's going to be really special," said Edwards.

The highest test and one-day run-getter's figure will also rub shoulders with sporting headliners such as David Beckham and Tiger Woods in the museum's interactive sports zone.

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.

There will be a cricketing challenge around the introduction of the figure, where guests can test their skills against the 'master blaster'.
