People say he was a lookalike of Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor.I say he was a big hope, strength & salvation of his ailing father and his mother & that of whole Kashmir. Magfirah!”
Junaid had such stark resemblance to the actor that even Ranbir’s dad, late actor Rishi Kapoor was stunned to see him. He had shared a picture of Junaid next to Ranbir’s and had written, “OMG. My own son has a double!!! Promise cannot make out. A good double.”
