It’s still hard to impress Papa Minhaj

Do you think parents of desi celebs would be different from your folks? Ask Hasan Minhaj. The Indian-American comedian, who has now become a household name, thanks to his Netflix special, “Patriot Act,” recently clocked in a million followers on Instagram. But a screenshot posted to Twitter shows papa Minhaj being far from impressed. When Minhaj texted his dad the news, he simply pointed out, “That’s 17 million less than Shah Rukh Khan.”  And as expected, Twitter exploded with desis all over the world who could relate to Minhaj. After all, is there any desi kid out there, who hasn’t even once been compared to a neighbor’s or a friend’s over-achieving beta or beti?
