Peter Dinklage lookalike finds fame in Pakistan

Pakistan Peter Dinklage Lookalike

Is Peter Dinklage, the popular American actor who plays Tyrion Lannister in the HBO fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” working at a small restaurant in Pakistan’s garrison city of Rawalpindi?

No, of course, is the answer.

But people ask this question because Rozi Khan, a 26-year-old waiter who serves flatbread and mutton, bears a striking resemblance to the “Thrones” antihero.  Dinklage has played the witty and wily nobleman since the drama series began in 2011.

Khan not only has a facial resemblance to Dinklage, he claims to be the same height – 1.33 meters (4 ft. 5 inches).

Dinklage’s Pakistani doppelganger Khan had not watched “Game of Thrones” until the son of his restaurant’s owner, Malik Aslam, told him he looked like a famous actor.

Khan’s popularity soared when Aslam shared his photo on Facebook and people started taking selfies with the waiter and sharing them on social media.

Khan is a waiter at a local Kashmiri restaurant called “Dilbar,” located in Rawalpindi.

Aslam’s brother Malik Siraj, who is also one of the owners,  described Khan as a hard worker and honest.  

Born in Mansehra, Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, Khan says he would love to meet Dinklage, and work with him on a drama.

The waiter has already starred in a commercial for a food delivery service in Pakistan.
