Like how a sardar is always greeted by specific terms like balle balle or paaji instead of his regular name or how he gets served sarso ka saag and makke ki roti even in an Italian restaurant and how he is much scarier than a scarecrow (toy) to horrify little children to manage them,’ laughed Maheep.Vikramjit’s act on the other hand started with a disclaimer note claiming — the jokes today are offensive but you need not worry since they are in English.
