New Delhi: Days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi grabbed news headlines after the news broke that his statue will make its debut at Madame Tussauds museum wax museum, now it's time for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. 

If reports are to be believed, the Delhi CM's statue will also be soon installed at the world famous wax museum. 

According a report in Ndtv.com, Kejriwal has agreed to be measured for the life-size statue next month.

Last week, describing Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a 'hugely important figure in world politics', the museum said that he had given the museum's team of artists and experts a sitting at his residence in New Delhi earlier this year.

The wax figures at each of the museum's locations around Europe and Asia will be dressed in Modi's 'signature kurta' in cream with a jacket and he will be featured in a traditional pose 'making a namaste gesture'.

"Prime Minister Modi is a hugely important figure in world politics, a position supported by his place in the top 10 of Time Magazine's Person of the Year List 2015," said museum spokesperson Kieran Lancini.

A new branch of Madame Tussauds is also set to open in New Delhi as part of the India-UK Year of Culture in 2017, announced during Prime Minister Modi's visit to the UK last November.
