Ten-Second Takeaway

Angelina Jolie, Obama and Gangnam-style star Psy are in Mumbai, and here for a while to stay at this new wax museum that has opened up in the unlikiest of places, Ghatkopar.

Wax Me Lyrical

Needless to say, it was quite an entertaining walk.  First thing that greeted us were flashing cameras with bouncing lights on the walls. Our first bolt from the blue came when we saw a security guard falling asleep on a chair, and we scoffed. A moment later, he didn’t move at all, and we wondered if he was okay. Further prodding and investigations proved that he was not hurt, he was just made of wax.

Here is some of what we saw.

We Loved

We also liked the simple touches, such as the toy gun provided for you to pose with James Bond, light bulb hat at the Albert Einstein booth, giving you fun things to do at each corner.

There were some other great surprises that would leave you shocked whether it is a real person or not, but we shall leave those for you to uncover. The only thing we missed was the presence of Bollywood celebrities.

So, We’re Saying…

On a scale of Madame Tussauds to Lonavala Wax Museum [Tussauds being the highest}, the Red Carpet Wax Museum proudly gets a score of 6.

Price: INR 250 a ticket {for now}, later INR 450 for adults
