Lookalike Ajab Gul Tom Cruise Doppleganger


This Pashtun Actor Looks So Much Like Tom Cruise I Could Almost Swear They Are Twins

We like to think that we’re special. One of a kind. But that’s not necessarily the case. At least when it comes to our appearance.

With around 8 billion people currently living on our planet, it’s quite safe to say that we all have a double (or doppelganger) out there somewhere. We’ve seen this happen many times before and it looks like there’s been a glitch in the Matrix, and genes are getting copy-pasted left and right.

For example, remember the time this Afghan lookalike of Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) was discovered?

And this Afghan talent show singer who found fame as Justin Trudeau’s double?

You know maybe I’ve fallen too deep into the obsession of stalking movie stars lately. But, I legit came to think he is Tom Cruise’s doppelganger.

For a moment, I thought maybe I need to get my eyesight checked or maybe this self-isolation is making me go crazy but I really think that these two handsome hunks look like twins who got separated at birth.

Well, I don’t know about y’all but I’m definitely convinced that they’re each other’s doppelganger. Please tell me, I’m not the only one who thinks he is his long-lost twin.
