Up until some time ago, 26-year-old Rozi Khan worked as a waiter at a local restaurant in Pakistan. But recently, he acted in an advertisement for a Pakistani online store.
All because he bears a striking resemblance to Hollywood actor Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones - which is undoubtedly one of the most famous fantasy dramas ever produced.
As the show moves towards its end, with only three episodes left in the conclusion of the 8-seasons-long series, an online store took the opportunity to cash in on Rozi Khan's instant fame.

The hilarious ad features a frustrated Rozi trying to avoid the 'extra attention' he's receiving ever since social media branded him as Peter Dinklage's doppelganger.
Twitterati was quick to laud the quirky ad, and even Rozi's budding acting skills.

Now let's see if this remains a one-time acting stint or the start of a very different journey for Rozi Khan.
