    Student, meet teacher.

    When you're launching your own show like Aziz Ansari is, there are a lot of decisions to make. Like who to cast as the token white friend.

    Or who to cast as your own parents. Aziz decided to go with the adorable route for the latter, and cast his own parents as his parents in his upcoming Netflix show Master of None.

    "I've seen reviews where they were singling out my dad, like, 'Oh my god, Shoukath Ansari steals the show!' Oh my god, this is not what I wanted to happen at all."

    Aziz, you did this to yourself.
