The Internet went gaga over his pictures which got viral in no time. Junaid who hailed for Kashmir bore striking similarities to Ranbir Kapoor. In a tragic report by JandK Headlines, the Kashmiri model passed away on Friday after suffering a cardiac arrest.

I'm told 28-year-old Junaid Shah and his parents had about a month back returned home from Mumbai where he would do modelling and was also reportedly enrolled in @AnupamPKher 's school of acting. He had no history of heart ailment.
