Roger Federer is undoubtedly one of the most loved and most successful tennis players of all times and his fans are a little upset nowadays because the legendary Swiss professional tennis player has announced that Laver Cup 2022 which will be played at London will be his last ATP event and he will take retirement after that.
Roger Federer has won 103 ATP singles titles including 20 Grand Slam titles, he has won singles Wimbledon titles record 8 times and many other tournaments and titles as well. He has been ranked number one by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) for 310 weeks which also includes the record of attaining number one rank for 237 consecutive weeks and five times, he has finished as year-end number one.
Roger Federer is very popular in India, not just because of his game but also for his uncanny resemblance to the Indian actor-producer-director Arbaaz Khan.
Arbaaz Khan is younger brother of famous superstar Salman Khan and son of well-known writer Salim Khan. Though Arbaaz has not tasted much success in his acting career yet he is still a renowned celebrity in the country. Presently, he not only acts in supporting roles but also produces and directs movies plus he has also worked in some TV shows and web series.
There is no denying the fact that there are facial similarities between Roger Federer and Arbaaz Khan and many people even consider them as doppelgangers.
After Roger Federer announced his retirement, fans from all over the world took to social media to wish him a great future. The Indian director-producer Hansal Mehta also made a post regarding this but with a tadka of humour.
Hansal Mehta shared a photo of Arbaaz Khan on Twitter with the caption, “Going to miss you champion. #RogerFederer.”

While some online users understood that Hansal Mehta did it purposely, few others thought that the “Scam 1992” director has committed a mistake and they trolled him. Here are some selected reactions:
