"The hair is thicker, no eye bags, no double chin, arms are bigger and the nose is sharper". Those were the exact words of Salman Khan when he came face to face with his wax replica at the world famous Madame Tussauds Museum in London. Well, who else could have understood his look-alike better than the actor himself?
He further added, “I always wanted some competition and now I have it" setting the crowd into laughter, like he always does. Sallu bhai is well known for his taunting comments, wacky answers and shocking replies to his critics, fans and media. So when asked why his family didn't travel with him, he tactfully replied, “The whole family back home is really excited but since London was so cold, they wouldn't travel."
Salman came to the venue in a white Bentley. Accompanying him was his younger sister Arpita, Bobby Khan and producer Sajid Nadiadwala. Khan himself wore a long brown leather over-coat with his famous torn jeans (he was the one who started the trend of torn jeans in the Hindi Film Industry) and white glittery t-shirt. In short, he was looking dapper in this outfit with his light brown hair and clean-shaven look.
Salman circled his wax figure by looking at it from top to bottom, when suddenly one of the journalists asked him whether his wax replica was the exact depiction of him in every department. The reply that came from Salman shocked everyone. “I still haven't looked properly. I mean inside his jeans." He was just himself today – ‘bindaas’. Salman Khan revealed that apart from his lucky bracelet and favorite Harley Davidson jacket, there wasn't anything else he donated to the wax figure.
However, that wasn't enough for the 42 year old film Bollywood actor. He said, “Even though I came in slightly later than Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Shah Rukh Khan, I still think they all are following me. After today, I don't think there is any Bollywood actor who is worthy enough to be standing next to me in Madame Tussauds." Don't worry guys! Our Sallu bhai was just kidding; after all, we are well versed with his sense of humor. He then added, “I think on a more serious note, Aamir Khan should have been the first one to be standing in Madame Tussauds."
One thing is for certain, January 15, 2008 will be best remembered as Salman Khan's day. Unfortunately, the weather was so bad that he could not even take off his T-shirt. Jokes apart, this will indeed be a proud day for all the Bollywood fans across the globe and the Indian Film Industry.
