Indian-American actor Kal Penn says he wants to star in one of the longest running sitcoms on Indian TV, "Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah" The 42-year-old actor, who was born in the US to Gujarati Indian parents, got his Twitter followers cracking up after he posted a video of himself Monday, posing as a fictitious Gujarati character called "Ladies Bhai".
He captioned the clip: "Meet Ladies Bhai: an old, ridiculous Gujarati sketch character with a great shirt."

The actor talked about 'Ladies Bhai' in his mother tongue, Gujarati, with the cameraperson in the 44-second-long video, which had English subtitles.
Penn portrayed himself as a boastful man bragging about a kiss he shared with his next-door neighbour.
A fan suggested 'Ladies Bhai' must be included in "Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah", to which the "Harold & Kumar" star replied, "You joke but this has legit been a goal."
His video has since received over 4,000 likes and has fans rooting for him to be a part of the show.
In the past, Kal Penn compared White House Press Secretary Mike Pence to Kantaben from Kal Ho Naa Ho. The movie, which starred Shah Rukh Khan ,Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan, also had Kantaben, played hilariously by Sulbha Arya, looking shocked at the bromance shared between SRK and Saif.
"Mike Pence reminds me of Kantaben from Kal Ho Na Ho," tweeted Kal.
