Filmmaker Karan Johar was surrounded by the love of his family and friends as he unveiled his wax figure here on Thursday.
Sharing the photographs of his waxed doppelganger on Instagram, Karan wrote: "Waxed at Singapore Madame Tussauds." The 46-year-old director was accompanied by his mother Hiroo Johar on the occasion.
"What fun with my mom and my family...and my surprise from friends who are too shy to be named," he added. The official Twitter handle of his production house, Dharma Productions, too shared photos of the filmmaker with the figure, claiming he has become the first Indian filmmaker to "make his mark at Madame Tussauds".
Karan's wax figure is inspired by the filmmaker's signature seflie pose, and is dressed in a printed blazer.
