I recently found out that inpersonating a health professional is not a criminal offence. It is a criminal offence to impersonate a police officer though!

If the person pretending to be a doctor takes bloods etc - now that can be classified as assault however.

Seems like anyone can pretend to be a psychiatrist then hunh?

I can't remember how he was eventually exposed after a few years.

Munna Bhai MBBS (Little Brother MBBS) is a famous Indian film in which two super stars who are father and son, Sunil Dutt and Sunjay Dutt have acted and Sanjay pretended a fake doctor whose fakeness was revealed quite at the end of the movie. Sunjay was very popular due to his deep empathy for his patients.
