Well… Not the Real Narendra Modi, but his doppelganger!

MP Ramachandran, a resident of Kerala, has been in the news since the Mumbai-based comedy group All India Bakchod (AIB) used his photograph alongside a morphed picture of Modi with dog’s ears and a snout.
Following the controversy that it triggered, Ramachandran, has grown tired of his resemblance with the prime minister and the fact that his pictures are being misused. He has often been stopped at railway stations and bus stops by people who wish to take selfies with him.
While he readily obliged in the beginning, the AIB controversy has made him decide against it. Ramachandran is planning on shaving his beard this week, hoping to stop making heads turn because of his uncanny resemblance to the Prime Minister.
The photograph of him peering into his mobile while waiting for a train to Bengaluru was taken at the railway station of his hometown Payyanur. The photograph went viral on social media and it was then picked up by the AIB. The meme was posted using the hashtag #Wanderlust.
The cyber cell of the Mumbai police on Friday registered an FIR against AIB for morphing Modi’s picture. This isn’t the first time that AIB has gotten itself into legal trouble.
However, cyber police while investigating the defamation and obscenity case against AIB said they are seeking Twitter’s help to retrieve the group’s now-deleted photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
But seriously, so much for being a replica of our PM!
