Our very own Miss Hawa Hawai aka Sridevi is back in the form of a wax statue. Madame Tussauds Singapore today unveiled the wax statue of the first female superstar of Bollywood and the statue has been given the look of Miss Hawa Hawai from the movie Mr. India.

Sridevi starred in 300 movies and was last seen on the big screen in 2018 release Zero in which she had a cameo. The actress had shot for her cameo before she passed away in February 2018.

The wax statue was unveiled by Boney Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, and Khushi Kapoor. Madame Tussauds Singapore posted on Instagram, “We are honored to have @sridevi.kapoor’s family, Mr Boney Kapoor and their daughters, @janhvikapoor and Khushi Kapoor together with their close friends and relatives at the unveiling of the iconic @sridevi.kapoor wax figure at the Ultimate Film Star Experience. The memorial wall will be displayed at the Ultimate Film Star Experience, so pen down your tribute messages when you are here! #MTSGSridevi #MTSG #MadameTussasudsSG #TheUltimateFilmStarExperience.”

Well, Sridevi’s fans aren’t much happy with the wax statue as they feel it doesn’t look like the late legendary actress. Here are some of the comments on the post, “sorry but you’ve spoiled the beauty”, “A big disappointment. The wax model does not at all look like Sridevi! ??”, “The eyes, the nose or the smile..nothing looks like Sridevi’s. This wax model can be of anyone but not of Sridevi in Mr India. You people have spoiled everything. Only the dress & the crown look like the ones she wore in the movie! You people have closed the doors in Madame Tassaudes for her forever! Somebody else would have made something better had you not made this one!”

We also quite agree with what Sridevi’s fans are saying as the wax statue isn’t a proper replica of the actress.
