Highlights

  • One is a superhit soccer star, the other a flop actor. Go Goa Gone’s Kunal Khemu has probably never been so much on the minds of people as he is now – every time Brazil’s Neymar Jr appears on pitch.
  • 31-year-old Kunal is a dead ringer for 22-year-old Neymar, who helped Brazil score a 3-1 win over Croatia in the opening match of the FIFA World Cup last night.
  • As a child actor, Kunal appeared in hit films like Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke and Raja Hindustani. His recent grown-up roles have been less successful, though he did feature in money-spinner Golmaal 3. Neymar Jr is currently the seventh highest goal scorer for Brazil (with Ronaldinho and Jairzinho), behind football greats Pele, Zico, Ronaldo, Romario, Bebeto and Rivaldo.
  • Twitter agrees that Kunal and Neymar look like each other:
  • Did Kunal Khemu score two goals for brazil in #BrazilvsCroatia #Neymar

  • Kickass business idea: Give Kunal Khemu an undercut, dress him in the Brazil kit & make him your brand ambassador. Instant Neymar jugaad!
