Kiara Advani, like many other actors, has a lookalike. A dentist on social media, Aishwarya Singh, who recreates her looks from her movies and has gone viral on social media. While flattered, Advani says she does not like the word “doppelgänger” being used for her.

Kiara said that she left a comment on Aishwarya's post when she saw the video. “So Aishwarya, I had actually seen her recreate a Dimple (Dimple Cheema, Kiara’s character from Shershaah) look and put it up on Instagram. And I think I was tagged in it, which is why I went and saw the post and even commented on it. She did a really great job with the way she recreated the look. And then this morning, like everyone else I got the forward,” she said.

“But you know I don’t really like the word doppelgänger. I know what she’s doing is flattering, but what’s interesting to me is that she’s a doctor in real life. She’s her own personality and it’s very sweet that she likes to recreate my looks. I’ve been told in the past that I look like someone and that’s great, but at the end of the day, you have to be the person who you really are,” she added.

Meanwhile, Aishwarya had recently spoken about her resemblance to Kiara in an interview. She said, “It feels wonderful when people start recognizing you from a viral video, when people appreciate your looks, especially when you are compared with such a beauty.”

She added, “Meeting Kiara would be a dream come true! She is an amazing actor and a diva. Who wouldn’t wish to meet her in person!”
