On Thursday, the museum of Madame Tussauds in the New York City revealed Priyanka Chopra’s first ever wax statue post marriage, in the name of “Priyanka Chopra Jonas”.
She shared the pictures on her Instagram as the actress unveiled that her wax statue will also be launched in other cities across the world including London, Sydney, and Asia, later this year.
Seeing her wax figure, she said, “Me when I saw my new wax figure at Madame Tussauds in NYC @nycwax (Coming to other locations soon!!) 4 figures. UK, Australia, Asia coming up! Thank you to Madame Tussaud’s team.” The actress was much overwhelmed as she saw her statue.
At the museum of Madame Tussauds in the New York City, in the wax figure, the Quantico actress is dressed in a red outfit, which is ditto what she wore at the 2016 Emmy Awards.

According to the reports, with this latest wax statue, Priyanka becomes the first global icon to have four Madame Tussaud statues modeled on her image. The only other celebrity to come close to this honor is late Whitney Houston with three Madame Tussaud statues.
