Salman Khan’s Bollywood film ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ broke box office records on its holiday opening, marking the actor’s unstoppable run in Bollywood cinema. The film, co-starring Katrina Kaif is a sequel to the 2012 film ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and signifies the return of the much-loved on-screen couple. The film has garnered tremendous traction, so much so that it has reached Hollywood, with this particular mishap with a famous actor that’s honestly SO hilarious.
Pakistani-American actor Kumail Nanjiani took to Twitter with a screengrab of the film, where we see Salman Khan’s character in an intense conversation with an extra
Kumail said how people were ‘congratulating [him] on the success of Bollywood film ‘Tiger Zinda Hai,” in reference to the character opposite Salman Khan.
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.

In case you don’t know what Kumail looks like, here you go
Uncanny resemblance, haina? Kumail grew up in Karachi and moved to Amreeka to pursue acting – his latest film ‘The Big Sick’ is based on his real-life romance with wife Emily V. Gordon, whom he married (much to the dismay of his parents). Before his first feature film, Kumail rose to fame as a regular on the show ‘Silicon Valley.’
Funnily enough, Kumail got a little confused himself the more he saw the picture, and funnily brought down his ‘90%’ certain to an ‘85%’
Here’s another look at the original fella…
We kinda see it
Fans couldn’t stop lolling at how similar both actors looked
God he looked just like you I had to Google who the actor was?

With some seeing a potential collaboration
If things keep going well for you, he can be your future body double. If they don’t, you can be his.

You’re better looking. And friends with cooler people.
