Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s doppelgänger has been arrested in Lucknow after he shot a video in a public place. Khan’s lookalike, Azam Ansari, was taken into custody by the police late on May 8 night, according to a report on NDTV. 

On May 8, Ansari was making an Instagram Reel at the historic clock tower, and a huge crowd had gathered to see the social media star. This led to traffic build-up and eventually a massive jam. The police then rushed to the location and arrested the star after several commutators complained. He was arrested by the Thakurganj police for smoking in a public place as well.
