The Internet is always hyped up about celebrity doppelgangers.
Singer Taylor Swift has one. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern recently met her lookalike. Bulbbul actress Tripti Dimri has a doppelganger in Bangladesh. Indian Team captain Virat Kohli's twin Cavit Çetin Güner starred in hit Turkish TV series Diriliş: Ertuğrul. Akeisha Varnado Land, a social media influencer from Missouri is popular for her uncanny resemblance to the former Dutchess of Sussex Meghan Markle.
You get the gist.
And now, desis are convinced that Imtiaz Ali's popular 2007 rom-com Jab We Met starred Kareena Kapoor and Irish actor Cillian Murphy and not Shahid Kapoor as Aditya in the lead.
Murphy, who has given noteworthy performances in gangster series Peaky Blinders and The Dark Knight trilogy made his Bollywood debut with Jab We Met, netizens say with "proof".
Don't believe us?
Here you go:
And just when I have resumed my Peaky Blinders watch, internet has gone wild about this cross connection between Cillian Murphy from Batman with Adittiya from Jab we met! Y'all are kinda destroying his Tommy Shelby image in my mind! https://t.co/bhqpFLEB5J— I aspire not to be a Teflon Slacker ϟ (@kutumoni04) July 23, 2020
Why has everyone suddenly realised the Cillian Murphy looks like Shahid Kapoor's character in Jab we met— চন্দন (@nogodbutarceus) July 22, 2020
Now waiting for Cillian Murphy to either watch Imitiaz Ali's movie or take notice of photoshopped memes and confirm that it was indeed him as Aditya Kashyap all along. Or wait for the memers to go all Geet and say, "Bhai sahab, aap convince ho gaye hai ya main aur bolun?"
