Abhishek Bachchan the next in Madam Tussaud's Wax Museum?

There was a news report in the papers about another wax figure being considered to stand alongside those of Bollywood stars Aishwarya, Amitabh and that of Shah Rukh Khan in the Madam Tussauds wax Museum. They have prepared a list of popular figures that they are considering for this objective and on this list features names like Lata Mangeshkar, Madhuri Dixit, Abhishek Bachchan and even Karan Johar!

The way of selection is again going to be through popular votes! And the speculations are high that the person that will be selected may be Abhishek, for the ‘silly’ reason that it would complete the Bachchan family!

Now, I find this to be completely and utterly disgusting! How can anyone even imagine taking Abhishek Bachchan’s name in the same category as the great playback singer Lata Mangeskar who is in a different league altogether! It is a great insult to her, I feel! And if they do want to complete the Bachchan family in the museum then why didn’t they consider Jaya Bachchan instead? Hasn’t she contributed more to Indian cinema and also to the country than the junior Bachchan, who still has a long, long, long way to go before we can say that he has contributed in any way to the Indian film industry or the country other than simply being the superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s son!!!??

I personally feel that Lata Mangeshkar would have been the right choice and that she should not and cannot be considered in the same league as the later stars like Madhuri, Karan and even Abhishek!

I only hope that the officials who are behind this move will consider all aspects very thoroughly before making their choice! And May the deserving person be chosen, to represent our country in the right manner and for the right reason!
