Shah Rukh Khan's lookalike Ibrahim Qadri recently opened up about his 'uncanny resemblance' with the superstar. He recalled getting mobbed and police rescuing him. Ibrahim was all praises for SRK. In an interview with Humans of Bombay, Ibrahim shared that he never paid too much attention to his look but it was his friends and family who used to tell him 'You look like Shah Rukh Khan'.
Ibrahim went on to add, "I couldn't help the attention I got & frankly when puberty hit, I started looking exactly like SRK! And that's when the madness began, after my friends & I watched Raees, everyone started mobbing me for selfies thinking the real SRK had made an appearance for the film's premiere!"
Recalling another incident, Ibrahim added, "Then there was another incident when I went to watch KKR take on Gujarat Lions in the Stadium; everyone took out their cameras & waved at me. People clapped & spoke SRK's famous movie lines at me. I saw how much love people have for SRK, & for the 1st time, I felt like a Badshah, it was special! But I got swamped & someone held onto me so tight that my t-shirt tore! It got so bad that I had to call the police to be safely taken out of the stadium. And after rescuing me, the cops asked, 'SRK sir, ek selfie?'" ALSO READ:DID YOU KNOW Shah Rukh Khan's New Mannat Name Plate Costs A WHOPPING Rs 25 Lakhs?

He also shared that he often gets invited to shows and weddings as the 'special guest' and he enjoys dancing with crows on the song Chaiyya Chaiyya.
Ibrahim's dream is to meet SRK one day. He added, "I'd be speechless if that happened but when I'd get over being starstruck I'd tell him, 'For always making me laugh, cry, dance, sing and have fun... I thank you. Dil Se!"
On the other hand, SRK has interesting projects in the pipeline. He will be seen in Pathaan and Dunki.
