Filmmaker Karan Johar will now have a wax statue of his at Madame Tussauds this year. As K Jo’s debut film as a director Kuch Kuch Hota Hai also completes 20 years in 2018, it’s just a reason for more celebration.
Karan Johar will be the first Indian filmmaker to have a wax statue at Madame Tussauds. We would have preferred a Satyajit Ray statue but hey, whatever rocks Tussauds’ boat! Karan has been one of the most influential filmmakers who’ve opened up the overseas market for Bollywood films in the 90s, so we guess there is merit there.
Honoured to be the first filmmaker from India at the prestigious @MadameTussauds …thank you to the entire team in London who worked tirelessly …will have further details about when and where soon!!! #MadameTussauds #iifamadametusaauds pic.twitter.com/pbLuVs3hER

Those who are still doing an eye roll, the procedures to create Karan’s wax statue are already underway and the figure is expected to be ready in 6 months. Basically, it’s too late to protest. See the pics below:
