I’ve been looking for you and the remaining 5 of our dopplegangers all my life.”
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Julia had said, “I started seeing things about us online, and then decided to tweet her to say ‘Hi’. She was so incredibly nice.”
Anushka and Virat shared the same announcement pictures, raking in a total of 15 million likes on Instagram. “And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021,” they had captioned the post.
