Shoukath, who’s a doctor when he’s not co-starring on Aziz’s Netflix series Master of None , mentioned recentlythat a big one of the purposes of his accepting the role was getting to spend more time with his kid. The commentary actually hit home with Aziz, and he had this to say:
My dad took off most of his vacation time for the year to act in Master of None. So I’m truly alleviated this all worked out. Tonight after we did Colbert together he said: “This is all fun and I liked are active in the depict, but I really merely did it so I could spend more time with you.” I nearly instantly collapsed into tears at the thought of how much this person cares about me and took care of me and gave me everything to give me the amazing life I have. I felt like a total piece of garbage for all the times I haven’t visited my parents and told them I wanted to stay in New York cause I’d get bored in SC. I’m an incredibly lucky person and many of you are as well. Not to beat a dead horse here and sorry if the issue was cheesy or too sentimental but if your mothers are good to you too, just go do something nice for them. I bet they care and love you more than you realize.
I’ve been overwhelmed by the response to the Parents episode of our present. What’s strange is do that episode and working with my mothers has increased the quality of my are relevant to my mothers IN MY REAL LIFE. In reality, I haven’t always had the best, most open relationship with my parents because we are weirdly closed off emotionally sometimes. But we are getting better. And if you have something like that with your family – I urge you to work at it and get better because these are special people in your life and I get panicked when my dad tells me about friends of his, people close to his age, that are having serious health issues, etc. Enjoy and love these people while you can.
Anyway, this demonstrate and my experiences with my mothers while working on it have been very important in many ways and I thank for you the component you all have played in it .
So hey, perhaps say thanks to a dad you know today.
