GOT fans go gaga over Peter Dinklage's Pakistan doppelganger (Photo: Twitter)
Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones is in Pakistan only if, it wasn’t a doppelganger. After Justin Trudeau’s long-lost twin in Afghanistan to Anushka Sharma finding her doppelganger in singer Julian Michaels, actor Peter Dinklage from Game of Thrones has also found his long-lost twin in Pakistan.
The Tyrion Lannister of Pakistan has been identified as Rozi Khan, 25, who works as a waiter in Pakistan’s Mansehra. He is also said to have never heard of the famous fictional HBO show until recently. Ever since his uncanny resemblance to Dinklage took Twittersphere by storm, netzines have gone gaga over the famous star look-alike. Reports also add that Khan is frequently intercepted by tourists frequently for a photograph, given his uncanny resemblance to Dinklage.
Basking in his internet fame, Khan told AFP in an interview: "I don't mind. A lot of my pictures have been taken, that's why I have become very famous everywhere."
He adds, "Wherever I go, someone says to me: 'Sir, who is this man with you on Facebook', I say that he is my friend. 'He looks like you'. I tell them he is my brother. It's not a bad thing."
To make all things on-point, Khan and Dinklage are also reported to be of the same height – 4 ft 5 inch.
Check out some of the tweets that were shared by Twitterati who couldn’t stop themselves over the striking resemblance between Khan and Dinklage:
