International television series ‘Game of Thrones’ has fans all across the globe but in India, it’s most famous character Tyrion Lannister has his own lookalike. As reported by TY earlier, Peter has a doppelganger who was spotted by director Imtiaz Ali in a small village. Now, India has again found another international sensation look alike, and this time it’s pop singer Rihanna’s lookalike Renne Kujur.
But, before we discover Renne Kujur, let’s recall how India’s Tyrion Lannister looks like, in this Instagram pictures share by Imtiaz:
No-one would expect an Indian to resemble an international sensation so much, but Renne Kujur is a rare case. She not only has a great modeling career, but is a great admirer of the pop star herself.
Renne Kujur hails from Chhattisgarh and lives in New Delhi due to her modeling. The 23-year-old model has been over-booked for various fashion shows, ever since she was discovered as Rihanna’s doppelgänger.
“I laughed off the Rihanna part. But soon, everyone was saying the same thing,” she once told Hindustan Times. A lookalike of the R&B singer, Chhattisgarh’s Renee Kujur is giving fair models a run for their money.
Renne didn’t make it easy. The aspiring model has dark skin. But, photographers and clients noticed her resemblance to the music and makeup mogul and started signing her.
She was once called by a makeup artist who said, “Sundar ladki ka make-up toh koi bhi kar sakta hai. In India, dark skinned girls aren’t up to beauty standards, but Renne shamed all critics.
In fact, 30-year-old Rihanna herself deleted her Instagram account after she came to know of Renne! Her social media handles like Instagram and Twitter were briefly disabled after they saw her imposer making waves!
The 30-year-old singer captioned a photo of the phony account, which currently has around 3,579 followers on Instagram:

Once her resemblance started kicking in, it came a blessing to her. She said, “Photographers would tell their clients that I resemble Rihanna. No one could deny that Rihanna was beautiful.”
The young model is now also getting noticed on all social-media photo-sharing apps as the ‘Desi Rihanna’. She goes by the name Bad Gal Renee on Instagram.
As part of her modeling assignments Renee features in an ad campaign for brand ABG (Another Bad Generation).
The 23-year-old who belongs to Bagicha, Chhattisgarh, has surely set a good career path. Take a look at some of her stunning pics:
