It’s quite a known fact theses days Bollywood is gaining a lot of popularity around the world, so I guess it’s only fitting we add a touch of it here in “World Famous” Niagara Falls.
Bollywood is the informal term popularly used for the Hindi-language film industry based in Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay), Maharashtra,India. Bollywood is the largest film producer in India and one of the largest centres of film production in the world. There has been a growing presence of Indian English in dialogue and songs as well.
Movieland Wax Museum on Clifton Hill is recognizing Bollywood with the addition of their newest character Shahrukh Khan. SRK is the Indian film actor AKA “The King of Bollywood”, and has acted in over 70 Hindi films. His contributions to the film industry have garnered him numerous achievements including fourteen Filmfare Awards from thirty nominations. His eight Filmfare Best Actor Award wins make him the most awarded actor of all time in that category, and Newsweek has named him one of the 50 most powerful people in the world.
My recent tour through the museum was definitely filled with some good laughs and so interesting trying to pick out the characters before reading the signs. I love the “house of horrors”, and I am not going to lie I jumped a few times and I won’t tell you where or why you will just have to figure that out for yourself. No worries though you don’t have to bring the little ones through the scary parts. The last time I went through with my two little girls (5 and 4) they had a door you could venture through to avoid any bedtime issues with the kiddies. It’s a very easy museum to maneuver through and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves as we toured through reminiscing about all the old T.V shows and movies we used to watch.
Now that you know a little more about Khan, and the Movieland Wax Museum lets see what else you will find…
If you are on Clifton Hill and feel like taking a walk through entertainment history you will love the Movieland Wax Museum, and at the end you will wind up in the Fun Factory where they have tons of cool souvenirs and you can make wax hands too!
