Celebrated singer Asha Bhosle, whose wax figure for the maiden Madame Tussauds museum in India was launched here on Tuesday, says being immortalised with a life-like figure capturing all aspects of her real self, has made her feel immensely proud. "I have won many awards... I have got honours from the government and even hold a Guinness World Record. I have got it all. But the way I am, they (Madame Tussauds' artistes) have made me (the figure) like that only, and watching that is making me very happy and proud.

The legendary singer looked radiant and elegant in an off-white sari, complete with sparkling solitaires in the ears, a pearl string on her neck, a bindi and white flowers adorning her hair.

At the unveiling, Asha stood besides her wax figure, which is sculpted in a symbolic singing pose with a mic and has been crafted from over 150 measurements and photographs. She posed just like the figure -- looking like a mirror image.

Asked what are her expectations and ambitions in life after working hard for so many years, Asha said: "I don't keep any such ambitions. God gives a lot... I am in the 85th year of my life, 84 have finished... In my mind, there was this desire (about the wax figure) and that has got fulfilled.
