"Varshita. She makes things enjoybale and fun to watch".
"Mrs Wangombe because she always fakes it till she makes it".
"Bobo, the way he stays at Donovan's and contributes nothing and he is the first one to ask for smokies, it happens in real life".
"Mrs Bhatt. When she speaks Swahili to mutinda its so funny (wewe iko pandia mimi uko nyuma) one of my favourite line. Determination also to make sure varshita marries an Indian man."
"The mamas in the village, wang'ombe and how he is ever on the receiving end with his wife, when it comes to fighting the drunk men in the bar, when mama Donavan,'the Master' goes like'battle formation, dragon attack!',my daughter made me love that very much".
"Lalu of course.....he's really funny, sarcastic and knows how to play his role perfectly"
"Don's father... This guy is just hilarious just flows with what the wife tells him yet he is the man of the house and how he would prove he has power over the wife to friends and neighbors yet still fears her".
"Donavan. His world is crazy, he is crazy, coward and outgoing".
Here are the responses to the next question:
And the second...given a chance what would be the one question you'd ask Varshita if you met her?
"How is she able to date Donovan for 10 years?"
"Will Don ever be truly your heart, body and soul? Voluntarily?"
"Will you go back to Don after the baby is born? Black baby?"
"What does she do in order for her to portray varshitas character so perfectly"?
"Despite her family being against her love with Donovan who is not an Indian what did she seem to love Rather feel in Donovan's love?"
"Do you think Donovan loves you??? Can you survive in the village with Don's parents??"
