American singer-songwriter Julia Michaels took to Instagram to share a new picture of herself. Netizens were quick to do a double take. Was it Anushka Sharma in her new blonde look? Julia's uncanny resemblance to the Zero (2018) actor has left them puzzled.
A fan even tweeted to Julia about the similarity. The fan asked her if she had heard of the Bollywood star. Julia replied saying she is now aware of her, thanks to the comparisons. Julia, a Grammy-nominated artist, recently released a new single, Anxiety, with Selena Gomez.
She has been making Anushka's fan groups curious about their screen idol's doppelgänger. Netizens have been calling them twin sisters who got separated in a mela during childhood in true filmi style. Some even asked Anushka's cricketer husband Virat Kohli if she had changed her name after travelling to Australia and New Zealand. One of the fans commented, "Those @anushkasharma comments like bahubali baahubali baahubali bgm"
Recently, actors Anushka Sharma have been named as India’s Hottest Vegetarians, according to votes on the official website of People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India. Anushka has become the first two-time female winner of the title, having previously won in 2015.
The actress, who was also named PETA India’s Person of the Year in 2017, recently starred in an ad campaign for PETA India, proclaiming: “I Am Anushka Sharma, and I’m a Vegetarian.”
Her other efforts to help animals include announcing plans to open an animal shelter near Mumbai, launching the PAWsitive campaign to raise awareness that animals suffer when people set off loud firecrackers, and successfully helping to demand a ban on cruel horse-drawn carriage rides in Mumbai.
“Going vegetarian was one of the best decisions I ever made. I have more energy, I feel healthier, and I’m so happy that no animals had to suffer for my meals,” Anushka Sharma said in a statement.
