Zhalay Sarhadi: The Pakistani model who was asked to play body double of Priyanka Chopra

Zhalay says, “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.”

Pakistani model Zhalay Sarhadi revealed recently in an interview that she was approached to play the body double of Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra.

Priyanka Chopra is currently working on her American TV show, Quantico 2.

Joking about being compared to Priyanka, Sarhadi told the Express Tribune, “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.”

She also recalled an embarrassing moment, when an Indian actor, who 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.
