The actor said in a Facebook live video from the British capital. “It’s fun, exciting and in a way I feel a lot of gratitude because you know when you give your fans a little more than just the movies, then it’s really, really special. I hope they enjoy it as much as we enjoy creating it,” Deepika said in the announcement video.

She said that the only time she’d visited the museum was in London, with her parents when she was a child. To get the call to have her own statue exhibited made her “Very, very excited.”

Deepika is currently in London getting her measurements taken for the process. Asked whom she’d like her statue to be placed next to, she said, “I think near fun people so that we can have our own little party there. But I think just to be part of this legacy of people who have achieved so much in life is exciting enough.” Deepika’s statue will be placed in the A-list category.
