Inspired by the Madame Tussauds wax museum, its owner Prabhakar opened Prabhakar’s Wax Museum in 2005 at Chandra Shekhar Prabhakar’s home in Model Town. When asked about why his museum’s wax statues don’t match the standards of the world famous London counterpart, Prabhakar said, ” At Madame Tussauds wax museum, they have access to celebrities and they make their statues from measurements taken from real facts and figures. But I make these statues from single dimension pictures, which is a challenging job. The museum is my contribution to my limited resources.”
