The Internet has made the world a smaller place as people leading normal lives have now become celebrities overnight. After Priya Prakash Varrier became famous for her wink in 2018, Pakistan’s Rozi Khan has got a lot of attention because he looks like Peter Dinklage. The Pakistani has been compared to the actor, who plays the character Tyrion Lannister in the hit television series Game Of Thrones.
Rozi is reportedly a 25-year-old waiter who works at a small Kashmiri restaurant in Rawalpindi, owned by Malik Aslam Parvez. Interestingly, Rozi became popular after users shared a picture of him on social media and compared him to Peter, one of Game of Thrones’ most loved characters. However, Rozi says he hasn’t ever heard of the television series but now that he has got so much fame, he would definitely want to meet Peter Dinklage. In an interview, the Pakistani at 4 feet 5 inches, said that he loves the attention as people stop him in the streets to click pictures with him. In fact, he says when people ask about the resemblance, he tells them that Peter is his brother.
According to restaurant owner Malik, Rozi is a hard worker and is busy serving mutton curries among other dishes on busy days and is quite a favourite among many customers too. Rozi is not the only doppelganger of Peter Dinklage, as another man by the name of Tariq Mir was spotted by Bollywood filmmaker Imtiaz Ali in Kashmir and he even tweeted about it. The fame comes at a time when the hit HBO series is set to telecast its last season on television, in what is anticipated to be one of its most defining seasons which has been built up over eight years. The first episode of Game of Thrones Season 8 will air on April 14, as the fight for the Iron Throne intensifies with Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, played by Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke at the forefront.
