Let us hope Tariq Mir gets the work he desires. Tariq Mir, a native of Anantnag district of Jammu and Kashmir, looks ridiculously like the American actor. Did you know India had its own Tyrion Lannister?  
Also, Mir has sharper features and sports the older look of Tyrion Lannister, before he came to Essos to escape the wrath of his sister Cersei Lannister. Mir has gotten minor roles in Kashmiri TV, and he wants to work in Bollywood. A dwarf with wit and a caustic sense of humour, Tyrion has been around since the very beginning and remains a fan favourite. As it turned out, it was the latter. Obviously, it sent social media into a tizzy, with people wondering whether he was the real deal, or just a look-alike. Mir’s hair is auburn, while Peter Dinklage, normally dark brown, is dyed deep gold for his character in Game of Thrones.

Tariq Mir is born with dwarfism, a condition that Peter Dinklage also suffers from.

In a country where dwarves are often the target of mockery, this is pretty laudable. Although they look really alike, once you look carefully, you begin to notice the dissimilarities. Mir is a huge fan of the actor, and is inspired by Dinklage’s success. Related News
