Wax statue of Dadasaheb Phalke to be unveiled


The year 2012 is a special year for the Indian film industry as it marks the completion of 100 years of Indian cinema. To mark this special occasion on May 3, a special wax statue of the father of Indian cinema Dadasaheb Phalke is to be unveiled at the Celebrity Wax Museum in Lonavala.

Dadasaheb Phalke was among the pioneers of the Indian film industry who made his debut with India's first full-length silent movie Raja Harishchandra in 1913. In a career spanning almost 25 years, Phalke made as many as 95 films.

Acknowledging his immense contribution to the growth and development of the Indian film industry, the Government instituted the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1969.

The wax statue seems to be a perfect tribute to one of the greatest visionaries in Indian cinema- Dadasaheb Phalke.
