Pak actress Zhalay Sarhadi was asked to be Priyanka’s body double


Pakistani model-actress Zhalay Sarhadi resembles Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra a lot, so she claimed in a recent interview. Zhalay joked about how she has often been compared to the ‘Quantico’ actress and how she was once asked to be her body double.

“I started working the same year that Indian channels got banned in Pakistan and Priyanka became Miss World. I remember, I was hosting a show back then and everyone thought it was Priyanka and not me. It’s been this way ever since that time. I bet even Priyanka knows about me by now,” the Express Tribune quoted Zhalay as saying.

Zhalay also recalled an embarrassing moment when an Indian actor, whom she was working with, sent her pictures to his friends and agents, and then someone from India approached her to be a body double for Priyanka.

She said, “The agent asked him, ‘Who is this? Priyanka ki cousin aisi tau nahin hai’. Someone from India then approached me to do a body double for Priyanka, which really offended me. I thought, ‘really?’.”

Zhalay was speaking to the daily ahead of the release of her romantic-comedy ‘Chalay Thay Saath’.
