Aasif Mandvi's quotes

  • People lament that there's no roles being written for South Asian or Muslim characters. But their parents don't want their children to go into the entertainment field. You don't get it both ways.

  • I was born in India - but never really lived there.
  • The experience of being on a show that is very much in the center of popular culture is exciting. You really feel like you're reaching people.
  • In Britain, you never get away from the fact that you're a foreigner. In the U.S., the view is it doesn't matter where you come from.
  • If you don't acknowledge differences, it's as bad as stereotyping or reducing someone.

  • I'm not really a food connoisseur.
  • The artist never really has any control over the impact of his work. If he starts thinking about the impact of his work, then he becomes a lesser artist.

  • Traditional television as we have known it will make love to the Internet and have a child. That child will be the future. It's already happening, and it's hot!
  • When I was 11 my friend's mom made a peanut butter sandwich. I ate the sandwich and was like, 'I'm never eating anything else again.' And I still eat peanut butter every day. I would put peanut butter on a steak.
