Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Nikita Sachdev ■nikita.sachdev@hin­dus­tan­times.com

The in­ter­net went crazy when Priyanka Cho­pra’s Cana­dian looka­like Navpreet Banga was dis­cov­ered. And now, in­ter­net’s lat­est sen­sa­tion Pammi Aunty aka Ssum­ier Pas­richa talks about his funny videos that have gone vi­ral. His char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion of Pammi Aunty is ex­tremely pop­u­lar. So much so that, Rishi Kapoor posted on his Twit­ter ask­ing his fans to re­veal Pammi Aunty’s iden­tity.

What was your in­spi­ra­tion for Pammi Aunty?

It was just a ran­dom funny video I posted on snapchat and that video cre­ated a lot of buzz. It got ap­pre­ci­ated and shared and that’s what in­spired me to do more of this stuff. I named my chan­nel much later af­ter this video.

How did you cre­ate the char­ac­ter Pammi Aunty?

Ev­ery Pun­jabi fam­ily has such a char­ac­ter who likes to crib and gos­sip about al­most ev­ery­thing. Be­ing born and brought up in a Pun­jabi fam­ily, I have been sur­rounded by these char­ac­ters so that’s what in­spired me to cre­ate Pammi Aunty. Pammi is a very Pun­jabi name so it has a Pun­jabi con­nects to it.

You are be­ing called Shah Rukh Khan’s dop­pel­ganger…

SRK is too big for me to be com­pared with. But I’m quite happy with the com­par­i­son as I do think we have a few things in com­mon in terms of looks - like the face cut, eyes and the beard. I have been told that we have a lot of fea­tures in com­mon. I am a fan of SRK.

Be­sides act­ing, what are other things that you do?

I am also a fash­ion pho­tog­ra­pher, singer and TV host but I think that my chan­nel Pammi Aunty has taken over all these pro­fes­sions.

Who are your favouite ac­tors?

I re­ally look up to the work of Amol Palekar, Dhar­men­dra and Johnny Lever.
