The actress was selected to feature in the gallery of Hindi film actors based on the results of a public poll, which also included Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. This makes her the eighth Bollywood actor to feature in the Bollywood section of the famed London attraction.
The 31-year-old actress couldn’t contain her excitement as she talked about the special moment at the red carpet of Femina Women Awards.
“It was really exciting when I first heard the news. It is something which will be there forever.”
“I have grown up in London for a few years, so it brings back lot of nice memories. I would be launching it on March 27 in London at the main Madame Tussauds and I am really looking forward to it,” she added.
It is being speculated that Salman Khan, the actress’s former boyfriend, will be travelling to London to accompany Katrina on the occasion.
