Sharib Hashmi’s Jayavant Kasinath Talpade, or JK, the way in which he prefers to be known as, had a vital function to play within the second season of The Family Man. Besides being Shrikant Tiwari’s trusted colleague who helps him cease a significant assault on the Indian soil, he additionally stood in for a big part of the inhabitants, whose data of south India solely is dependent upon the pictures they see in senseless, massive star, multi-crore Bollywood movies.
JK and his penchant for expletive-filled conversations together with his work buddy Srikant Tiwari have been a principal supply of humour within the present since season one. The showrunners, Raj and DK, nonetheless, within the newest season use this character to debunk a couple of cliches so that folks don’t assume that everybody in Tamil Nadu walks round calling one another ‘yenna rascala.’
And you possibly can’t fully blame JK. He means effectively. But, he’s type of tricked by Bollywood’s illustration into believing that he is aware of sufficient to get by simply in Tamil Nadu. He will get a cultural shock as he quickly finds out Bollywood stereotypes of Tamil Nadu are far faraway from the fact. Thanks to his colleagues Muthu Pandian (Ravindra Vijay) and Umayal, JK would return residence a modified man.
Five times JK was schooled by Muthu
When Muthu presents to take the group to a resort, JK will get excited and says: “I love South Indian food!” Muthu asks him about his alternative of meals, “Which South Indian food?”
JK is type of befuddled. Muthu explains: “There are five states in South India.”
In one other scene, Srikant Tiwari takes a swipe at his teammate for not finishing an essential report on time. JK jumps in and asks his colleague to buckle up. But, he once more makes use of a stereotype as he tells his colleague, “Hey, Rascala. Drink some coffee, stay alert and get down to business?”
Muthu once more confronts him: “That’s right, JK. Tamil Nadu means drinking filter coffee and calling everyone yennada rascala, right?”

JK and Tiwari go trying to find clues that might cause them to Chellam. They are in a fish market asking individuals there for some info. And JK, childishly asks, “What, Hindi won’t work here?.” And this time, it didn’t require a local to burst his bubble.
Tiwari responds: “Just because you speak Hindi, doesn’t mean the entire world does.”
JK likes espresso. To be extra particular, filter espresso. And he tells this to everybody he meets. He tells Umayal (Devadarshini), “I love filter coffee,” hoping that his devotion to espresso will win him some goodwill. She refuses the beverage, saying, “No coffee. No tea.” Later, that night, when everybody will get collectively to unwind after an extended day over a drink, JK makes one other fallacious assumption. He asks Umayal, “You don’t even drink coffee and tea. Should I call for a lemonade?” And with a deadpan expression, she says, “whiskey.”
