Have you seen Akshay Kumar's doppelganger? The resemblance is uncanny
Akshay Kumar, who is currently rejoicing the success of Mission Mangal, is back in the headlines. This time, though, it isn't because of his movies, but for a viral picture on social media featuring his doppelganger. Recently, a photo of an elderly Kashmiri cricket fan named Majid Mir surfaced online, and Internet was quick to notice his uncanny resemblance with the superstar.
Majid follows Gavaskar's heydays trend, wears hat everyday
Apparently, the picture was first shared by a journalist attached with a leading news channel. The scribe stated that Majid is a huge fan of former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar, and religiously follows his trend (from heydays) of wearing a hat. However, soon after the picture went online, netizens went berserk, and commented that this will how the Kesari actor would look when he ages.

Netizens also believe that Majid will be a perfect choice for portraying Akshay in his biopic. "Looks like Akshay Kumar!!! Had to enlarge photo to see the difference," wrote another user.
