While your doppelganger might still be wandering around somewhere across the world, the internet has managed to find not one but many of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s look-alikes time after time.

One such look-alike was spotted waiting for a train at a railway station recently and, of course, the photo went viral on social media sites in no time.

Comedy group All India Bakchod (AIB) was among the many Twitteratis who jumped onto the bandwagon to spread some humour. They posted the doppleganger’s photo alongside an actual photo of Modi’s face with the Snapchat dog filter.

However, not all Twitter users were impressed, and the AIB came under fire from Modi supporters for “insulting” the prime minister and hurting “nationalist” sentiments.

Within hours, the group deleted the post fearing more backlash. However, the saga did not end there.

Soon enough, some Twitter users started trolling the AIB - this time for being “scared” of the BJP and deleting the tweet.

This did not go down well with AIB co-founders Tanmay Bhat and Rohan Joshi who hit back at the trolls in equal measure.

In the end Tanmay Bhatt had had enough with the roasting.
