The actor chose to appear in a Punjabi avatar on chat show The Kumars At No 42 recently. And I must say he totally nailed that desi look.
The actor chose to appear in a Punjabi avatar on chat show The Kumars At No 42 recently.
And I must say he totally nailed that desi look. There are a lot of funny comparisons that has started doing the rounds of the virtual world though. He is been labelled as the firang Manmohan Singh, as even the prime minister has a penchant for wearing light coloured pagdis.
Hugh has quite a desi connection.
He has visited India a couple of times. He was seen attending FICCI Frames along with his wife in 2011 and hobnobbing with some of the biggest Bollywood stars. He also shook a leg with Shahrukh Khan at the event. Trust SRK to make anyone groove, and influence people with his energy and enthusiasm.
Hugh is also the brand ambassador of Micromax. Greeting the audience with a humble ‘Namaste’ in the ads, the Wolverine star has to a great extent made his presence felt in India.
Hosted by Sanjeev Bhaskar, Kumars at No 42 is a chat show – something on the lines on Comedy Nights With Kapil. The show won an Emmy in 2002 and 2003, and this Indian family on the show usually creates a laugh riot with their dry wit and sarcastic jokes.
I am waiting to watch this episode of Hugh having a confab with the funny family. Wonder what they will say about his pagdi though?
Hugh fans, y’all tell us, if you prefer the dishy actor with his steely claws or a cute Indian pagdi?
