At Madame Tussauds, a boy band, Bollywood and even the Dalai Lama
It's not only celebrities who go on world tours; sometimes their wax doubles do too, thanks to Madame Tussauds. British pop band One Direction made its debut in New York City, and Bollywood actors, which arrived in Hollywood last week after touring Australia and Hong Kong, took to the red carpet at the Hollywood Tussauds. JFK went to Berlin, the Dalai Lama to Australia, and -- mamma mia! -- the original Abba popped up in Amsterdam. Here's a peek at what's new with the worlds of wax.
