“The expressions that you see are mostly stolen from the faces of common people. Normally mimicry is done of big actors, but it is fun to mimic those people who have no connection with this industry. So I copy common people without copyright,” Kumar laughed.

“I travel a lot. Recently, I got stuck at the Frankfurt airport because of the volcano ash incident. I had to wait long. So I sat down and looked around and people have something to offer,” he added.

So does he find it difficult to get into the skin of boisterous characters?

“Darling, [with] the kind of cheque you get, you automatically start acting the way the director or producer wants you to. How can that be hard then?”
