Suchitra Sen's wax statue to come up in Kolkata

January 18, 2014

Thanks to a personal request made by the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Ms. Mamata Banerjee, the Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (HIDCO) has decided to soon start the groundwork for setting up the city's first wax museum in Rajarhat New Town.

Modelled on Madame Tussaud's London wax museum, the one coming up at Rajarhat will have a dozen of life-size statues. And it has almost been decided that Suchitra Sen will find a prominent place in the exclusive gallery.

Suchitra Sen's popularity among the people of West Bengal remains unmatched decades after she graced the silver screen. The songs she lip-synced are still a rage and she is still the reference point for upcoming actresses.

Sen was a trendsetter in many respects -- one of them being she had posed scantily-clothed for modelling and another being her entry into films five years after her marriage--something unimaginable in those days.

After Suchitra Sen's demise on Friday, the government had announced its decision to rename Ballygunge Phari as Suchitra Sen Square and also proposed to rename Ballygunge Circular Road after her.

The wax museum will be completed by the end of this year and will have both famous personalities from all fields. The authorities will be inviting sculptors and artists for coming up with life-size statues of luminaries.
