Hello Mrinal, would love to see your take on how to duplicate or double the face.

I think the hazy effect is nothing more than a blur.

OK let's see if I can make this easy to understand.

Open the original in Ps.
Duplicate the original.
Right click the Original layer and click Convert to a Smart Object.
Turn off the original layer.

Create a layer mask on the duplicate layer.
On the layer mask, use your Brush Tool to to isolate the head.

Once done isolating the head, highlight the layer mask and right click, select apply layer mask.

Turn the original layer back on.

Highlight the duplicate layer, reduce it's opacity to about 75%.
Hit Command/Control + T to enter free transform mode.
Move the head to where you like it.

Turn the duplicate layer's opacity back to 100%
Right click the duplicate layer and Convert to a Smart Object.
On the duplicate layer, adjust the opacity to where you want it to be for the final image. I went to about 60%.

On the duplicate layer apply a new layer mask.
On the duplicate's layer mask, use your Brush Tool set to black to fade out the side of the face you don't want to show....
.....in my image it's the right side of the face.

Here is the reason why I used Smart Objects, we are going to add a blur. With SO, you can go back a readjust your blur at any time.

Highlight the Original layer, go to FILTER > BLUR > GAUSSIAN BLUR > set at about 15 pixels.

Repeat on the duplicate layer.
Highlight the duplicate layer, go to FILTER > BLUR > GAUSSIAN BLUR > set at about 15 pixels.

You can always go back and move the duplicate layer some more, add more or less blur........

Done.
