Late actress Sridevi’s wax statue was unveiled at Singapore’s Madame Tussauds by Bollywood filmmaker-husband Boney Kapoor. Daughters, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor, accompanied him.
The event pictures and videos went viral within hours, after the statue was shown to the world. The family looked awestruck after seeing Sridevi's statue.
In a video we can see the loving husband Boney getting emotional, almost on the brink of choking up. However, daughter Janhvi Kapoor was there to calm him and she held his hand as he posed beside the wax statue of his late wife and actress.
Sharing a video of how Sridevi's wax statue was designed and brought to life, Boney had earlier written on Twitter, "Sridevi lives forever in not just our hearts but also in the hearts of millions of her fans. Eagerly waiting to watch the unveiling of her figure at Madam Tussauds, Singapore on September 4, 2019. #SrideviLivesForever."

As a tribute to her, Madame Tussauds at Singapore had also collected messages from her fans from across the world and displayed them on the tribute wall at the launch.
