Aishwarya Rai@NYC's Madame Tussauds
Bollywood superstar and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai has become the first Indian celebrity to have her wax model displayed at Madame Tussauds Museum in historic Time Square in New York.

Within minutes of unveiling of her life-like model dressed in intricately patterned red Sari, her fans in New York began flocking the museum to admire the waxwork.
The unveiling of the model, borrowed by the New York Madame Tussauds from its parent museum in London, coincided with the India's 60th Independence Day celebrations on Wednesday and will be on display for six weeks before being sent back.

A group of dancers, dressed in lahengas gave a scintillating performance during the 15 minute unveiling ceremony. The dances portrayed several of her popular songs.
