Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar will be immortalised with a wax figure to be installed at Madame Tussauds in London.
He will be Bollywood’s first filmmaker to get a wax figure at the museum. The wax statue will be launched later this year.
Karan tweeted a photograph of himself, holding a briefcase in one hand and a wax imprint of his palm on the other hand. A copy of his biography “An Unsuitable Boy” is also seen kept in front of him.
He captioned the pic as, “Honoured to be the first filmmaker from India at the prestigious Madame Tussauds. Thank you to the entire team in London who worked tirelessly… Will have further details about when and where soon! Madame Tussauds.”

Karan Johar had reportedly met the creative directors from the museum in London last week. The process will take approximately six months to complete, after which it will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds.
Madame Tussauds London already has wax figures of Indian personalities like Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and others.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Karan has a slew of films in his kitty, including “Student Of The Year 2” and “Kalank”, which features a star ensemble including Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha and Alia Bhatt.
