A sculptor from West Bengal has made a Tussauds-like wax statue of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, whose death in June left thousands of his fans in shock and triggered multiple investigations. Life-size statue was unveiled to pay ode to the versatile actor. Many pictures of a wax statue of Sushant has gone viral on social media.
This Madame Tussauds style statue has been made by a sculptor named Sukanto Roy, who lives in Asansol in West Bengal. Susanta has created statues of many famous personalities including Amitabh Bachchan and Virat Kohli. He has also immortalised politicians like Jyoti Basu and others.
The statue of Rajput, which looks exactly like him, features the actor in a denim jacket standing with his arm leaning on a chair. The museum is open to all and any fan of the actor can visit it to click photos.
According to an ANI report, Sukanto Roy, the sculptor, said he admired Sushant and has made the statue in memory of the actor. He said, “I liked him (Rajput) a lot. It is unfortunate that he passed away. In his memory, I have made this statue for my museum.” He added, “However, if Sushant’s family requests for his statue, I will make a new one.”

A few weeks ago, fans of Sushant Singh Rajput started a petition to have his wax statue installed at the famous Madame Tussauds wax museum. In a recent online petition launched on Change.org, his fans Basundhara Ghosh and Sophie Reham have been demanding a wax statue of the actor.
Not only wax statues, but the fans have also demanded justice for Rajput and a CBI probe into his death despite Maharashtra Police ruling it a suicide.
