The founder of the world famous Hollywood Wax Museum SPOONY SINGH has died. He was 83.
Singh passed away at his Malibu, California home on Wednesday (18OCT06) after suffering congestive heart failure.
The India-born star moved to Canada with his family aged three before relocating to Hollywood in 1964. Frustrated at his lack of celebrity sightings, he opened the museum a year later (65) which boasts nearly 200 figures of Hollywood stars.
He once explained, "I thought, let's bring the stars back to Hollywood Boulevard. Let's allow people to get close and look into the eyes of their favourite entertainers.
"Believe me, I didn't know if it would even work."
He is survived by his wife of 63 years, CHANCHIL, six children and 11 grandchildren.
