“Superb… Kangana JUNIOR.”
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has claimed she has a doppelganger who is just nine years old.
The child is a huge fan of Ranaut’s and loves to recreate some of the actress’ iconic looks.
Nine-year-old Suman Puri shares the looks on her Instagram account, which her mother manages for her. On social media, she goes by Choti Kangna.
As well as dressing up like her, Puri also bears a strong natural resemblance to Kangana Ranaut.
She has the same curly hairstyle, and does an almost-perfect imitation of her.
Suman Puri met Kangana Ranaut for the first time in May 2021 at Amritsar’s Golden Temple.
However, she began recreating the actress’ looks before then.
On her Instagram account, which has over 4,000 followers, Suman Puri shares side-by-side images and videos of her and Kangana Ranaut.
She imitates some of the actress’ most memorable social media posts or scenes from her films, such as Queen and Manikarnika.
Her most recent post came on Saturday, July 10, 2021. The caption read:
“Finally a trending video on demand.”
Comments poured in for the young girl on her ability to recreate Kangana Ranaut’s look so authentically.
One Instagram user said: “Wow so amazing – keep posting daily we enjoy.”
Another wrote: “Superb Choti.”
A third said: “Superb… Kangana JUNIOR.”
Now, Suman Puri has caught the attention of Kangana Ranaut herself.
Taking to her Instagram story, Ranaut recently shared a picture of one of Puri’s imitations of her.
The look is a traditional ensemble, with a blue kurta and yellow dupatta.
Sharing a picture of Puri on her Instagram story, she asked:
“Hey Choti, do you even study or this is what you do all day?”
The nine-year-old was quick to reply that she is a class topper.
Here are a few of Suman Puri’s recreations of some of Kangana Ranaut’s iconic looks:
