What is Madame Tussauds?

Madame Tussauds is a museum chain for life-size wax replicas of Historic icons and celebrities in themed galleries. It used to be known as “Madame Tussaud’s”; the apostrophe is no longer used.

Who was Madame Tussaud?

The lady known throughout Britain as Madame Tussaud was born Anna Marie Gresholtz (December 1761 – 16 April 1850) in Strasbourg, a city located between Germany and France. In the early 1830s, she founded the famous London wax museum that bears her name.

Madame Tussauds Delhi has a wax figure of late actress Madhubala as Anarkali. Madhubala is best known for having played Anarkali in the 1960 classic hit Mughal-E-Azam.

The wax figure was created by several artists who researched, interviewed relatives, studied her videos and took over six months to create this masterpiece.


The Ranbir Kapoor wax figure was my absolute favorite followed closely by the one of Anil Kapoor, Mary Kom, and Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam.


Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, and Madhuri Dixit also figure amongst others. Personally, I didn’t much like their wax figurines.
