Finding someone who looks exactly like you in another country is nearly impossible. However, one woman, Bianca Mihai found her doppelganger through a photographer friend who saw how similar they looked.
The 18-year-old, who hails from Buzau in Romania, was stunned to see her Palestinian-Syrian lookalike, Lana Al Beik.
According to The Sun, the singer's photographer friend, Alexandra Danciu, showed her and her family photos of Lana.
Bianca's family was stunned by the resemblance and her grandmother could not even tell them apart.
"My parents showed the pictures to my grandmother who said 'wow, where did you take those images? Very beautiful Bianca, how stunning you are’."
Lana in turn stumbled across photos of Bianca on social media through a loved one. The 25-year-old said her mother saw a video of Bianca singing and asked her about it.
Lana was quoted saying:
"One day my mum was on Instagram when she asked me about a video. I said, 'Mum, I don't sing. That's not me there'."
She added her mother was stunned to find out that it was not Lana in the video.
"She thought I was on stage singing, but it was Bianca," she said.
Bianca posted a snap of herself with Lana and the two look like they could be twins.
