Is it us or does he look exactly like Omar Borkan Al Gala - the guy who was kicked out of the KSA for being too handsome?

Tekken's New Saudi Arabian Character

Middle Eastern gaming geeks are in for a treat as the upcoming Tekken 7 has been confirmed to include an all new Arab character that goes by the name of Shaheen. After rumours of the new addition surfaced last summer when Tekken 7 director Katsuhiro Harada spoke proudly of the franchise's Middle Eastern fan base. As a new year's gift, to the Arab world Harada announced Shaheen on the 1st January, releasing an image of the decidedly handsome new character. However, if Arab boys were hoping to finally find a game character they could relate to, they might be disappointed as the uber-hot Shaheen looks a lot like Omar Borkan Al Gala - the Emirati man who hit headlines last year for being kicked out of Saudi Arabia for being way too hot.  Thoughts?
