Kumbh chakkar: Lost and found after 12 years

By all appearances, it would seem actor Anushka Sharma has a Caucasian twin — the American singer and songwriter, Julia Michaels, and most of the world just found out. Three days ago, Julia posted a photograph of herself on social media profiles and had informed netizens do a double take.

One meme went: “Indian girls before going abroad; Indian girls after going abroad.”, “She looks so much like Anushka Sharma, even her picture has a Punjabi accent.”, “Anushka Sharma’s lookalike goes viral.
