They say we have seven doppelgangers in this world, turns out there are two in the Bollywood industry, only decades apart and that too Rishi Kapoor and Alia Bhatt!

Surprisingly, a Twitterati posted a picture of the 63-year-old actor from back in the days of Bobby and captioned it "Alia Bhatt in 1970".

It didn't take long for memes to surface on Twitter showing the uncanny resemblance between the two stars.

When Rishi Kapoor came across the post, he took the joke wholeheartedly and admitted to the fact while quipping: "Hilarious. I am Alia Bhatt in the 1970s lol."

Both actors share screen space in Karan Johar's Student of the Year but surprisingly no one ever noticed the similarity between their looks.

Even Alia couldn't help but burst into laughter.
