A set of two images showing a team of Madame Tussauds museum taking dimensions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's face for the latter's wax statue has resurfaced with misleading claims. The caption with the image takes a jibe at PM Modi for leading a lavish lifestyle in contrast to his often-made statement, "I am a beggar." (Original text in Hindi: हम तो फ़क़ीर आदमी हैं).
The photos are from 2016, when when a team from the Madame Tussauds wax museum had visited Modi’s residence to collect measurements and other details for a wax replica they were building in their museum. The woman in the first image is seen holding up an eyeball while a study of Modi’s facial features was being done for the statue.
