Meet Pammi Aunty aka SRK’s lookalike
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.
