Kareena Kapoor’s Madame Tussauds wax statue will be unveiled on October 27th in Blackpool, UK.
Due to this, Kareena Kapoor will be missing the Toronto Premier of her movie ‘RA.One’.
“Aamir is also coming to London to shoot a part of our film, Dhuaan, and I have to be there because it was a prior commitment. Shah Rukh (her RA.One co-star) also feels that my presence at the Dubai and London premieres is more than enough,” she said to HT.
The unveiling of the statue was previously scheduled in second week of October but had to be postponed due to the untimely death of Saif Ali Khan’s father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.
“They wanted it to take place sooner, but then Saif’s father passed away. So I wrote saying I wouldn’t be able to do it before Diwali. It has worked out perfectly because now, the unveiling comes around RA.One’s release, and I will be in London for its premiere (on October 25),” Kareena said.
Unfortunately, her beau Saif Ali Khan wont be appearing with her for the event as he is busy shooting for ‘Agent Vinod’.
My mother (Babita) and a close friend will be present. Karisma can’t accompany me because she is shooting (for Dangerous Ishq). She is busier than me nowadays. So, I have to take dates from her. My mother has always encouraged me to take on different things. So, this one is for her”, she said.
The unveiling of Kareena’s statue also kick stars Bollywood exhibition, featuring statues of Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan among others, to six countries including Hong Kong and Thailand.
