Khan had actually never heard of the popular television series before and only became familiar with it after a lot of random people started asking for selfies with him, according to AFP.

In the hit HBO show, Dinklage plays the beloved character Tyrion Lannister.

“I don’t mind. A lot of my pictures have been taken, that’s why I have become very famous everywhere,” Khan was quoted as saying. “In all of Rawalpindi, wherever I go my pictures are there.”

Not only do they look uncannily similar, but the pair also share the same height of around 135 centimeters (4 feet 5 inches).

“I want to meet him. I love him very much, he is my friend,” Khan added. “I like him very much because he is my height so I like him a lot.”

Khan’s restaurant serves traditional Desi food such as daal, biryani, qeema, taka tak, mutton karahi, mutton tikka and all kinds of kebabs and vegetables.

Thanks to Khan’s growing popularity, the restaurant where he works is attracting more and more customers who just want to have their picture taken with him.

 

“I felt like I had met with Lannister in real life!” one customer said.

Dinklage fans who are unable to visit his doppelganger in Pakistan will just have to wait for him to reprise his role as the “Hand of the Queen to Daenerys” when the final season of “Game of Thrones” begins airing on April 14 on HBO.
