One would expect his Indian fans to recommend some cult classic - which a lot of them did- but Federer also got introduced to a lot of Arbaaz Khan film titles. Fans for the longest time have called Arbaaz Khan a doppelganger of the tennis star and so, on Wednesday, some of them thought that it was perhaps important for Federer to know about the actor.
