It seems like Rihanna isn’t the Only Girl in the World to look like herself.
Model Renee Kujur from Chhattisgarh, India, is now in the internet’s spotlight for bearing incredibly similar facial features with the Grammy award-winning singer.
The Hindustan Times reported that the model was first turned away and “ridiculed” by many recruiters in the country, where fairer-skinned talents are more revered. “Photographers would tell makeup artists to make [darker models] three to four tones lighter and heavily photoshop [their] pictures,” Kujur said.
Kujur’s friend later remarked how she was the spitting image of Rihanna, though the model brushed her words off. “But soon, everyone was saying the same thing,” and Kujur began clinching more partnerships as photographers informed future clients about the resemblance.
Since the newspaper published its feature on the model, she’s been receiving worldwide attention—and she’s no longer denying how alike she looks with the Barbadian beauty icon. Kujur has changed her Instagram handle to ‘badgalrene’, a play on Rihanna’s username and moniker, ‘badgalriri’.
Check out some uncanny photos of the up-and-comer. You have got to love the way her facial features lie in similarities with those of Rihanna’s.
Our good wishes to Ms. Renee Kujur.— TribalStuff (@TribalStuff) July 4, 2018
