Khan's wax statue moves to Hong Kong

Shah Rukh Khan's wax statue has been moved to the Madame Tussauds museum in Hong Kong.

The wax likeness of the actor, 44, normally resides in London's Madame Tussauds but is being lent to the Hong Kong branch for three months.

The figure of the Bollywood star will be displayed alongside the likes of Jackie Chan, Harrison Ford and Johnny Depp in the World Premier section.

"Madame Tussauds Hong Kong has been receiving many more tourists from India in the last two years. While these guests enjoy meeting our unique collection of 100 international celebrities and world leaders, we are delighted to have Khan join our attraction," Bret Pidgeon, general manager of Madam Tussauds Hong Kong and Shanghai, told Mid Day.

Khan's likeness was installed in London in April 2007 and will return to the UK at the end of July 2010.

Pidgeon said that the Hong Kong museum had borrowed the Khan waxwork because its display of Amitabh Bachchan's statue had proved very popular.

"Following the success of displaying Amitabh Bachchan's wax figure at the attraction last year, we anticipate that Khan will be as popular with the Indian community in Hong Kong and guests visiting from abroad," he added.
