Pakistani model Zhalay Sarhadi, in a recent interview joked about being compared to Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra 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.
