Netizens have found yet another doppelgänger for a Bollywood celebrity and this time it’s for Katrina Kaif. Alina Rai, who describes herself as an ‘actor’ has been gaining popularity over time due to her stark resemblance to Katrina. However, Rai denies feeling the same. She says nobody in her close circles had ever said that to her before and it is merely an Internet trend to look for celebrity lookalikes.
During a chat in 2019, she told a journalist, I personally don’t see this. I believe that sometimes when it’s someone from the film industry, people when they see actors or models they aren’t familiar with, they see exactness or association with someone familiar and so they rid them of their originality or the independence of who they are… but with time I hope I can create my own mark and people will recognise me as myself and as Alina Rai and not a copy or anything like that because I actually don’t really resemble her so much. Neither my family sees it not my close friends see it. Maybe it’s something people see from a distance”.
However, her 200,000 followers on Instagram disagree. Most of her posts on the social media website are flooded with comments about her resemblance to Katrina Kaif. Some have even tagged Katrina to ask her views about the same.
When asked about her thoughts on Katrina Kaif, Alina had said, “She said, “I mean I think she is amazing…she has established herself as a star in Bollywood. However, to be compared to someone is… I don’t really see it as a compliment or as an insult. I feel you should really make your own mark and your own shine.”
On the work front, Katrina is currently shooting for Tiger 3 with Salman Khan. She will then move on to working on projects like Jee Le Zara with Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt, and Phone Booth.
