Pillai spotted his face in one of the ads and tweeted about it. “Apparently I am “Sagar Chauhan,” senior frontend engineer. Not the first time this is happening. Somewhat miffed that I have such a generic face, it gets lifted for all kinds of random advertisements,” wrote Munjal in his tweet.

Once some magazine used one of my pictures (along with my mom) for an article they had written (which wasn’t about me), and I made them take it down.” Pillai replied, “Aah, yes, in the earlier case, I was able to get them to take it down. And they sent a half-apology saying a “vendor” supplied the image or something like that.” A third person added, “Tbf, he does start this with “Credentialing is broken.” So self-aware.”
