Recently, BollyCurry brought you news of Kareena Kapoor being all set to join the high ranks of celebrities at the prestigious Madame Tussauds museum in London. Curiously, it now seems that Kareena won't exactly be seen amongst the world selects.

For the record, ever since it came to light that Madame Tussauds was looking for a Bollywood heroine to succeed Aishwarya Rai's statue at the famous wax museum, an expected tussle among rival Bollywood divas was triggered, where Kareena eventually emerged victorious. However, after getting impression that visitors will see her waxed figure in her much-acclaimed Chameli avatar, it was rather disturbingly revealed to the actress, that she was in fact to be placed in a small town branch called Blackpool, 200 miles from London.

Meanwhile, avoiding controversy and in their defense, Madame Tussauds has clarified that all the statues of the Bollywood stars will be going on a tour across the world, including some locations in the US, as part of a new exhibition.

So far the museum holds wax figures of Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Aishwariya Rai and Hrithik Roshan.

We wonder what Bebo has to say of this - if anything!

    Over rated!! Just becoz she hangs out with all 3 Khans doesn't make her important! One should work hard to gain the popularity..I would select Karishma anyday over her!! Atleast she has talent and she is way more beautiful then her.
    & I also Agrees with Kai_Hiwatari why is it so imp to get international recognization?? One should be proud of what and where we are from! Just oggling over international fame ain't good sign...

    She has given ten times as more FLOPS than HITS so defo a very over-rated actress. Its all about the Kapoor name tag. Lol if the way to decide whose getting waxed is through online polls then Iam highly disappointed with these Tussauds ppl. Ha! Iam not even gonna waste my time whining about who deserves it n who doesnt if a statistically representative Indian population isnt even voting for this stuff. No wonder I thought they were clueless about Bollywood. At this rate I wouldnt be surprised if the next person to get waxed is Deepika or Sonam Unhappy As mush as I like them, Iam not gonna harp on n waste my breath about whose more deserving cos nobody seems to care about what most of us think... Uff so not worth it yaar! Stupid Tussauds ppl.

    Just because Aishwarya is Amitabh's bahu , that doesn't mean that she gets more importance. She's not such a great actress that she gets a wax statue. And Kareena, she deserves to have a wax statue. I wouldn't say Aishwarya is a rubbish actress, she's okay okay. But from my point of view, they are certainly not the best. Well, that's just my opinion. I don't want to start any fights. :)

    kareena is a fine actress... in her first film also she was superb and very natural... chameli, jab we met, omkara, kurbaan, were some of her fine work. she can deliver much more than what she has been offered so far.. i love konkana, vidya balan , rani , kajol as they might be better actors than her but she is doing fine too ...

    Many of us know that the selection process is hugely subjective. Having said that, I firmly believe that kareena is HIGHLY OVERRATED as an actress. It is of course my personal opinion. But, the hype and hooplah about her talent keeps amazing me. There are many more talented actresses in bwood. I would anyday rate konkana as a much better actor.
    And finally, those who believe in numbers, we can't even come up with 5 of her movies that are box office super hits.

    nothing can be cleared without the museum authorities statement...so i don't believe any rumors like this..and guys y everyone is offending her...its not her fault...she didn't told or paid to museum authorities to put up her statue over there...its her fans effort...i agree with the fact that there are many much more deserving candidates than her but its bebo's fans love and determination that made this possible...

    @Ms.S.K.- i am so glad to read ur comment. of course, Raj kapoor, Satyajit Ray, Dilip Kumar-they all deserve to be there much before aishwarya, shahrukh, hrithik and salman! but those people are legends. they don't need madame tussauds to recognise them. and u r absolutely right. the youngsters vote in such polls, no doubt then dilip kumar lost to hrithik roshan. usually these polls are conducted on the internet, and more than 75% of the adult Indian population use the net only for their work and not to vote in polls.otherwise, there is absolutely no doubt that madhuri, sridevi- all r much more popular than kareena.
