Just two days after her birthday which was on March 12, comes this thrilling news for all her ardent fans that Madame Tussauds (Delhi) would be sculpting a life-size wax figure of music icon prolific playback and pop-singer Shreya Ghoshal.
“It’s a unique, overwhelming, and yet a humbling, birthday gift for me and I am ecstatic to be a part of history, at Madame Tussauds. It’s an honour as my wax-figure would be sharing space with legendary stars and illustrious celebrities from all walks of life when they open in June. To be immortalised forever is such a fabulous feeling,” said Shreya who has to her credit four National Awards and multiple Filmfare Awards.
What is incredible is that although her mother-tongue is Bengali, Shreya has won Filmfare Awards for diverse songs that she has sung in all the South Indian regional languages. “Music has no language, you emotionally connect with the melodious harmony and put your heart and soul, while singing the lyrics,” she smiled modestly.
Meanwhile, not many are aware that gifted singer Shreya, who hails from a non-filmy family, was awarded the highest honour in London by select members of the U.K. House of Commons and that she has also featured five times in the Forbes magazine list of Top 100 celebrities of India.
