Dubai | A Saudi national, a look-alike of Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, has been invited to visit India and meet the man himself.
Hassan Al-Asiri hailing from Jazan in the Kingdom will be leaving for Kerala later this month after the end of holy month of Ramzan, according to a Saudi Gazette report.
Someone posted Al-Asiri’s pictures on social media a month ago and the photo went viral due to his facial similarities to Chandy. Soon, Al-Asiri was spotted by a few Keralites who showed him the picture of Chandy.
An amused Al-Asiri expressed his desire to meet Chandy. A close aide of Chandy is reported to have said that the chief minister was also amused when he saw Al-Asiri’s photos.
The chief minister would be only glad to meet Al-Asiri if he wishes to come here to meet him (Chandy), the paper quoted the aide as saying. Another Chandy look-alike was also spotted in Canada recently.
