CHENNAI: Customers to the Joyalukkas jewellery showroom in the city can now get a chance to pose with a wax statue of actor Madhavan. The statue, designed by Sunil Kandallor, has strikingly similar features of the actor, including the height and weight.

Unveiling the statue on Tuesday, Mr. Madhavan said a similar statue would be unveiled in two weeks at the Bangalore showroom of Joyalukkas. Addressing media persons, Joy Alukkas, managing director of the jewellery chain, said the promotional initiative was an attempt to enhance customer's shopping experience and provide them best quality service at all times.

Briefing on the expansion plans, he said the next showroom would be opened in Vijayawada on January 9. “This would be followed by opening of showrooms in New Delhi and Tiruchi in April next year,” he said. Observing that 90 per cent of the customers of Joyalukkas are from Tamil Nadu, he said the showroom in Chennai was one-of-its-kind, featuring designs and creations from top-slot designers across the world. The showroom also houses a unique diamond cave, which would allow visitors to get an idea of what goes behind the making of sparkling diamonds and the amount of workmanship involved in creating exquisite pieces.

Bollywood actor Adha Sharma participated in the unveiling of the wax statue.
