she be like "is that cole sprouse" *check on google* HAHAHA

After the whole thing went viral, Janani explained her side of the story. "I was waiting in line when I turned around and saw someone who looked eerily like Cole Sprouse," she told BuzzFeed. "I almost told him he looked a lot like Cole Sprouse, but then I realized that it might actually be him. Because I wasn't 100% sure yet."

Janani says that because she's in college, she hasn't had enough time to watch Riverdale, but has loved Cole's work since his Zack and Cody days.

"I decided to turn around and google the name quickly. (I actually googled Dylan Sprouse first, so I hope he didn't see that). I had no idea that he was looking, and thought the phone was sufficiently hidden, but I guess I didn't do a good enough job because when I turned to ask for a selfie, he smiled and told me he'd seen me google him. I told him I was embarrassed, and we laughed and took a selfie!"

Janani says that despite the funny circumstances, Cole was a sweetheart during the selfie. "Even though I never thought he'd see me google him, I thought his reaction was extremely funny. I'm glad there were no hard feelings, and that I got to meet a childhood hero of mine!"
