"I literally thought you were Anil Kapoor."
An Anil Kapoor doppelgänger has gone viral and he is based in the United States.
American bodybuilder John Effer took to Instagram and shared a picture of himself with a moustache.
Without the moustache, he looks like a regular man but with the moustache, John resembles Anil Kapoor from the 1990s.
John acknowledged the resemblance and captioned the post:
“Time to level up NGL Anil Kapoor.”
Noticing the resemblance, one person said: “Almost Bollywood ready.”
John later posted a collage featuring the same selfie and a picture of Anil side-by-side. He wrote:
“I’m waiting on that Bollywood call TBH. Where is it at!!?? Anil Kapoor.
“Kids a great actor – my dad says so.”
Fans found the post amusing and took to the comments section.
One person said: “I literally thought you were Anil Kapoor.”
Another said: “You’ll be in Bollywood in no time.”
A third wrote: “The stash is so glorious.”
Pointing out John’s physique, others said he was the muscular version of the Bollywood actor, with some coming up with puns.
One said: “Didn’t know Anil was this jacked.”
Another wrote: “Swole-nil Kapoor.”
One person agreed: “Swole version of anil HAHAHAHAHAHAH.”
Shocked by the resemblance, a netizen said:
“Yo that’s uncanny, like a jacked Anil Kapoor.”
Referencing the actor’s 1988 film Ram Lakhan, one person told John:
“You need to say 1 2 ka 4, 4 2 ka 1 my name is Lakhan.”
One user wondered how did John know about the actor, asking:
“Your dad told you about him? Or you have any friends from the Indian subcontinent?
“You speak Hindi/Urdu as well.”
John Effer frequently posts pictures and videos of his gruelling workouts.
Meanwhile, Anil Kapoor was last seen on Koffee With Karan, sharing the famous sofa with Varun Dhawan.
During the show, host Karan Johar asked Anil what makes him feel younger.
The actor did not hesitate and confidently replied: “Sex, sex, sex.”
Anil also spoke about infidelity within marriage, telling Karan:
“I am a very sincere, and very honest man.”
On the work front, the actor will next be seen in Siddharth Anand’s Fighter, starring Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan.
Other upcoming projects include Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal and the sequel to No Entry.
Another project is the Hindi remake of the British spy series The Night Manager, which starred Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston.
The remake will star Aditya Roy Kapur and Sobhita Dhulipala.
