One of Bollywood’s biggest award shows, the IIFA were held in Mumbai last night. The who’s who of the industry attended the much talked about even as they looked their absolute best in glamourous numbers. But that’s not all that went down. Keeping up to the tradition of all award shows, there were winners. The likes of Alia Bhatt and her beau Ranbir Kapoor, along with Vicky Kaushal, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sara Ali Khan and Ishaan Khatter won accolades for their performances in the past year’s releases. Likewise, Ranveer Singh also bagged the award for Best Actor (Male) for his role as Khilji in 2018’s Padmaavat.
However, that’s not all that happened when Ranveer went on stage to receive his award. While it’s no surprise that he would be gushing over his wife and Padmaavat co-star, Deepika Padukone, in his thank you, he also made an announcement. He revealed that he would be getting his own wax statue at London’s famous Madame Tussaud’s Museum. In a video clip that has been making rounds of the interview, Ranveer is saying, “My mother-in-law was like ‘Come on, now you have to work hard if you also want a statue of you in London.’ Mama, we’re going to London. I’ll see you.”
The actor then continued praising his Deepika and claimed that her statue is the best one at the museum. “I took an entire tour and hers is the best one. I am partial but it’s cool. But baby, you and Morgan Freeman had the best wax statues,” he addressed the crowd and his wife. “There’s going to be me and you, baby - husband and wife. Madame Tussauds, London.” Ranveer and Deepika have worked in numerous films together. They met on the sets of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela RamLeela and have been in love ever since. The two tied the knot in Lake Como, Italy last year and will be next seen together in Kabir Khan’s ’83 – which is based on the life of former Indian cricketer Kapil Dev.
