    Justin Trudeau may have found himself in a classic Bollywood-style situation after viewers of an Afghan talent show noticed that a contestant looked like the Canadian prime minister’s long-lost twin brother.

    Abdul Salam Maftoon, an aspiring folk singer from Afghanistan’s Badakhshan province, who boasts thick curly hair and strong eyebrows, was dubbed “Salam Trudeau” or the “Afghan Trudeau” thanks to a striking resemblance to Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    Pictures and videos of the Afghan Star contestant’s performance on the show have been making rounds on social media, with netizens being extremely excited at the discovery:

    Yet, it remains unclear if the two have any other similarities to share: for instance, dressing up as Clark Kent, aka Superman for Halloween, or having a thing for flashy socks and shirtless hiking.
