11 Lookalikes in Indian Indie AKA Same-guy Syndrome

Jan 04, 05:41pm

We ploughed the depths of the internet to find/envision/discover these uncanny resemblances in the Indian independent music circuit and beyond. Some of these people may or may not have been separated at birth. 

 

 

1. AKSHAY RAHEJA (THEM CLONES) & RANBIR KAPOOR

After the startling success of Rockstar, Ranbir Kapoor quit Bollywood and joined Them Clones full-time.

 

2. ARSH SHARMA (THE CIRCUS, FUZZCULTURE) & CEDRIC BIXLER-ZAVALA (THE MARS VOLTA)

The similarities don’t just end with their looks. Cedric Bixlar-Zavala is a talented composer and musician. Arsh Sharma is a talented composer and musician. It is rumoured that Cedric thinks he’s actually Robert Plant. It is rumoured that Arsh thinks he’s actually Dave Mustaine. 

 

3. ABHISHEK BHATIA (THE CIRCUS) & CHAD KROEGER (NICKELBACK)

Abhishek Bhatia is in The Circus. Chad Kroeger should be in a circus.

 

4. AKSHAY RAJPUROHIT (SCRIBE, PANGEA) & KUNAL KAPOOR

When Akshay Rajpurohit isn’t busy destroying the stage with Pangea or Scribe, he can be found at pubs in Lokhandwala where he signs autographs for fans and pretends he’s Kunal Kapoor.

 

5. CHINTAN KALRA (EX-PARIKRAMA) & FRANK ZAPPA

Pretty appropriate, don’t you think? 

 

6. SAHIL MAKHIJA (DR, RD, WORKSHOP) & PRITAM

Sahil Makhija goes by the moniker ‘DemonSTEALER’. As for Pritam – well, some punch lines are best left undelivered. 

 

7. VIRAJ MOHAN (SUNDOGPROJECT, AVR) & NAUMAN SAIT (MTV ROADIES)

After the last SundogProject gig, we spotted Viraj Mohan leaving on a motorbike, mouthing profanities and plotting conspiracies against his friends and bandmates in broken English. 

 

8. IMAAD SHAH (MADBOY/MINK) & OMAR RODRIGUEZ LOPEZ (THE MARS VOLTA)

These two look more alike than Salman Khan and Salman Khan in Judwaa. Even more than Aamir Khan and Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3. Uncanny.

 

9. KESHAV DHAR (SKYHARBOR) & BUSTER BLUTH (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT)

We would pay good money to see Keshav Dhar scream ‘I’M A MONSTER’ or, indeed, have a hideously inappropriate relationship with Liza Minnelli. 

 

10. ANANT DONN BHAT (DONN BHAT + PASSENGER REVELATOR) & BRUCE LEE

Has there ever been a better moment to say ‘Brotha’ from anotha’ motha’?

 

11. NISCHAY PAREKH & THE OCEAN ORCHESTRA & LIC LOLLIES
