Ranbir Kapoor’s lookalike and Kashmiri model Junaid Shah dies of cardiac arrest

Junaid Shah, who shot to fame for his uncanny resemblance to Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor, passed away due to a cardiac arrest on Thursday night.

The Valley-based boy turned a social media star in 2014 as he resembled Ranbir—which later helped him bag modelling assignments in Mumbai.

The news of his demise was shared by his relatives and friends on social media. They revealed that Shah took his last breath at his Elahi Bagh residence in Srinagar.

Shah’s popularity had risen after late Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor mentioned him on the microblogging website.

“OMG. My own son has a double!!! Promise cannot make out. A good double,” Kapoor had tweeted.
