They already share a surname, albeit with different spellings, but Shahid Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur will now don similar hairdos for their respective upcoming projects — Haider and Daawat-e-Ishq.

An industry insider reveals, "Both the boys look freakishly similar these days. While there has been a lot of talk around Shahid’s latest look and haircut in Haider, Aditya, too, was spotted sporting a similar hairdo recently. It is part of the actor’s look in Daawat-e-Ishq."

Incidentally, the similarity isn’t only restricted to the looks. The young actors also have the same name in their respective films. The insider says, "Shahid will be seen playing Haider, and that is also what Aditya’s character is called."

However, that is where the similarities end. While Shahid’s film is a typical Vishal Bhardwaj project, Aditya’s is on the lighter side.

However, both films will release around the same time.

While Haider is being shot in Kashmir, Daawat-e-Ishq is set in Lucknow and Hyderabad.
