The photo featured Hrithik Roshan and Mansoor in identical black shirts and trousers as they filmed for Vikram Vedha. Fans said Mansoor looked just like a xerox copy of Sushant, only with messy long hair and a beard. A fan commented, "Oh my God, replica of SSR (Sushant Singh Rajput)." Another one wrote, "Stuntman resembles SSR." Another fan commented, "The fact that he looks like SSR, also his name is Mansoor, Sushant's character's name from Kedarnath (2018)!" One more commented, "Ek pal ko laga Sushant hai Hritik ke sath (for a moment I felt it was Sushant with Hrithik)."
The photo was originally posted by Mansoor on Instagram last month as he wished Hrithik on his birthday. In his caption, he had written, "Happy Birthday bhai Hrithik Roshan. You are a super star with pure heart, so grounded and so humble, so caring, so loving person. You always appreciate and respect others talent!! Also a super friendly human…" A person had commented on his post at the time, "Yeh toh Sushant hai bhai (brother, this is Sushant)."
