Hasan Minhaj and Kumail Nanjiani discuss the importance of"Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle"



-In honor of Asian and Pacific American Heritage month Variety held a discussion with top actors and directors.

-Kumail Nanjiani admits he has trouble feeling like he has made it as success in Hollywood is not permanent .He admits he felt some success when he started to audition for parts that were less stereotypical . He does recall auditioning for a role of a taxi driver in a major movie, where he was asked to play up his accent. he refused. The movie was in his words hugely successful,but he does not regret his decision .


-Jon M. Chu celebrated signing on to direct his first film, and on screen adaption of" Bye Bye Birdie" that was never made, by buying a washer and dryer. he bought a mattress when he directed "Step up two". Chu just recently allowed himself to enjoy success , since he always never wanted to go by box office or critics and just focus on the next project.

-Hasan Minhaj thought that"Harold and Kumar go to white castle" was the last film he would see with two Asian leads in non stereotypical roles and was happy that it was only the beginning of cultural shift.

-Director of "The Farewell" Lulu Wang believes exposure behind the camera can move the AAPI community foreword.The sign of success she says is that a film may or may not have personal ties to ones own personal life .
