Here’s a classic
example of how sometimes cases of mistaken identities can make for hilarious
scenarios. Bollywood actor Imran Khan received a rather interesting message
lately. Except, it was addressed to the recently elected Prime Minister of
Pakistan – Imran Khan.
The actor was obviously amused by the note and took to Instagram to post along with the caption, “I guess I can no longer ignore the call to action. Gonna start drafting some policy outlines this week, I'll keep you guys updated.”
The message read,
“Successful leader takes right decision at right time. He recognizes friends
and selects faithful team members. Now it is ten years long governance and I
want to join your team on very first day.”
This is not the first time that Imran Khan has been mistaken for the namesake cricketer-turned politician. In 2011, he was called to be interviewed by a journalist who actually wanted to talk to the cricketer.
Here’s an excerpt from the interview (according to NDTV):
Imran Khan Poses For A Photo Shoot
Reporter: For a fast bowler, you have quite a small build and frame. How did you manage to be successful in your sporting career despite being so puny?
Imran: You yanks have a very weird sense of humour. Er... my cute looks and puny frame help bowl maidens over, you see. Hopefully, I will continue to maintain a good strike rate going forward also.”
In addition to being mistaken for the politician, Imran has also been mistaken for Irrfan Khan. Check this post out:
We wonder what
would Pakistan PM, Imran Khan would have to say about the goof-up.
