Career graph says a lot about a person’s life and if your work is getting appreciated then you know that things are at the right place. But what if people appreciate things that you aren’t involved in and congratulate you for the same? Something similar happened with this Hollywood actor who was recently praised on social media for his ‘Big’ Bollywood debut.
Kumail Nanjiani who is a popular figure in the West and has some remarkable movies in his kitty, was in for shock when Twitterati started praising him for his debut in Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’.
Bunch of people have been congratulating me on the success of Bollywood film Tiger Zinda Hai. I was confused.
Then I saw this picture.
This is not me.
I don’t think.

Though the tweets were quite flattering, Nanjiani couldn’t hold back his confusion.
After doing some research we have brought out the truth for you all. The guy in the movie was Anant Vidhaat Sharma whom you must have seen in the movie ‘Sultan’ playing the role of Salman Khan’s buddy.

It was just a play of doppelgangers but who can stop Netizen from cracking some jokes as this kind of goof-up excites them.

If things keep going well for you, he can be your future body double. If they don’t, you can be his.
