Restaurant worker is a dead ringer for Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage

Rozi Khan, a waiter in Pakistan, has gone viral due to his striking resemblance to actor Peter Dinklage, who plays anti-hero Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones.

Strangely enough, 25-year-old Khan had never even heard of the 49-year-old actor — or the hugely popular television show — until his looks began gaining more and more attention in his home country.

"I don't mind," Khan told AFP News Agency. "A lot of my pictures have been taken, that's why I have become very famous everywhere."

Pretty soon, photos of Khan made their way to social media, which led to customers swarming the Dilbar Hotel in Rawalpindi, a city in the Punjab province of Pakistan, in order to be served by the waiter. Khan is even the exact same height as his famous dwarf twin, at 4 foot 5 inches.

Restaurant owner Malik Aslam Pervez, who describes Khan as a hard worker, does not seem to mind his employee's newfound fame.

"When he takes a day off or gets sick, people look for him and ask, 'Where did he go?'" he told AFP. "They get upset. They love him. There is always a crowd here but it has boomed because of him."

Although he didn't even know he existed months ago, Khan now says he would love to meet his doppelgänger.

"I love him very much, he is my friend ... he is my height so I like him a lot," said Khan.
