It’s not uncommon to find nowadays people who resemble superstars. Some style themselves to match celebrities, others just naturally look like a carbon-copy. It seems Miss World 2000 Priyanka Chopra has got a doppelganger.
Meet Pakistani model and actor Zhalay Sarhadi, who looks very similar to Miss World 2000 Priyanka Chopra. So much so that she was even approached to do a body double for Chopra.
Zhalay had said “I started working the same year that Indian channels got banned in Pakistan and Priyanka became Miss World. I remember, I was hosting a show back then and everyone thought it was Priyanka and not me,” said the supermodel. “It’s been this way ever since that time. I bet even Priyanka knows about me by now.”
Zhalay recalled how once an Indian actor she had been working with sent a picture of hers to his friends and agents as a joke. “The agent asked him, ‘Who is this? Priyanka ki cousin aisi tau nahin hai.’ Someone from India then approached me to do a body double for Priyanka, which really offended me,” she said. “I thought, ‘really?’.”
