Salman's wax statue will join the collection of wax figures at Madame Tussauds New York on Thursday, August 2. The celebrated actor will join such famed Bollywood stars as, Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, in the attraction's "Bollywood Zone."

Salman who made his Bollywood debut with the 1989 film Maine Pyaar Kiya has come a long way since with blockbuster hits under his belt. Currently busy with his latest film Ek Tha Tiger, Salman enjoys a massive fan following in India and overseas as well.

"Salman Khan is one of Bollywood's most enduring and recognizable stars," said Bret Pidgeon, General Manager of Madame Tussauds New York. "Bollywood exploded on the American pop culture scene several years ago and has become one of our most exciting entertainment categories."

Salman's wax figure is joining Madame Tussauds New York's Bollywood Zone, which was created after numerous visitor requests. The brightly-colored, fully-interactive area includes a replica of the Taj Mahal, videos of authentic Indian dancers and a photo area where visitors can pose with Bollywood stars - all designed to re-create the experience of being on a Bollywood film. Over the coming years, Madame Tussauds plans to expand the area to include figures of other prominent Bollywood stars.

The figure - on loan for 3 months from Madame Tussauds London - was launched in January, 2008, after Khan beat nine other Indian mega-stars - including Madhuri Dixit, Hrithik Roshan, Lata Mangeshkar and Abhishek Bachchan - to choose the "Next Bollywood Star" that would get a wax likeness. More than 10,000 people voted in the August, 2007, public poll. Khan personally chose and donated the black top and denim jeans for his wax figure.
