In a hilarious video from Shenaz Treasury (Rama Patel) of One Life to Live, Shenaz goes to various One Life cast mates and asks them to their best impersonation of Rama Patel’s Indian accent! And the results? Well, for some they are less than stellar, but their attempts are admirable! And some are pretty damn close, or are they?

Watch as Josh Kelly (Cutter, who sounds more like a mix of Kermit the Frog and Rama Patel), Tuc Watkins (David), Andrew Trischitta (Jack), Kassie DePaiva (Blair) and Robert S. Woods (Bo) do the “Rama Patel”!

Now after the jump, watch the Rama contest and let us know who you think gets first place in their performance of Rama Patel’s accent?

I agree, DC. These little glimpses they’re giving us of life behind the cameras is really interesting and makes me feel a little it closer to these actors as people.

Tuc did a great job. If ever there is a story line of David getting lost in India, he’s ready.

So glad the Patels are back on tha canvas. Agnes Nixon wanted Llanview to be multi-cultural. This insures the tradition continues!

Hope the show is as good and a fun as some of its publicity gimmicks…OLTL could even do better here than when it was on the network. However there are some OLTL fans who cant afford cable or internet who still only recieve just the three networks, so they wont be able to watch. Even if online viewing is the future and network television becomes a thing of the past there are many who cant afford the new way of watching these shows. When tv came in as the new way of entertainment in the 1950s and radio shows became a thing of the past, the economy and job climate was so much better than today! My parents didnt have a tv in those early years but they would go over to my mothers parents to watch until they could afford one of their own. But thats not so easy today: not everyone can go over to a realitives to watch on their laptop or computer, unless the latter is connected to a large tv screen, and some may never be able to get internet to watch online shows because even if hulu is free those people still would have to pay for internet services and simply cant afford the extra bills, especially since internet rates can also go up. Thats why i hope regular network tv which you can still recieve for free without cable, sticks around for those who simply cant afford a computer or laptop, and the internet. Im certain some however can go to the library and use their computers but time there is limited, and that would be a pain in the ass to do all the time for some, especially the elderly, the disabled, and those without transportation. We do need to keep the three networks around for these people as long as we can!

So I guess I’m the only one who finds her voice annoying, minus the accent. It’s too high pitched and she comes across as a ding bat, (Archie, Archie)!

I kinda blame the director for that…i like daytime showing an Indian American family for a change!

Some members of oltl cast are obviously close knit enough to joke abt an Indian accent w/ shenaz. But I don’t think other racial minorities would be comfortable w/ this. I’d rather not watch this video bec I think it would make me cringe. There are enough hollywood films and tv shows w/c already use this kind of humor. Would oltl cast be comfortable if they were asked to joke abt a stereotypical way a gay guy would talk? That would be highly doubtful given how it would be thought of as mocking gay people. glaad and entertainment press scream homophobia when there’s any unflattering portrayal of gay people.

There are obviously very few Asian american actors on tv shows as secondary chars. Isn’t “mindy project” w/ oltl alum the only tv show from hollywood w/ an Asian american leading char? This soap obviously needs press. But was joking abt an Indian accent really necessary given the lack of Asian american chars from majority of hollywood films and tv shows? Would hollywood alienate its lgbt audience? Of course hollywood would not. Yet lgbt only comprise 1.7% of american population according to openly gay activist gary gates. While Pew research has reported that Asian americans are 6% of american population. Pew research reported that Indian americans and Filipino americans are the wealthiest. Everyone has their opinions on political correctness. Some people think lowbrow humor of replicating an Indian accent is amusing. While others have higher standards for humor. But it isn’t good business for a relaunching soap opera to potentially alienate an entire racial minority demographic who has the buying potential of 1.1 trillion dollars. A lot of Asian american chars get whitewashed by hollywood. Many hollywood films and tv shows have cast white actors for Asian american chars. hollywood already lacks representation from Asian american chars. Joking abt Indian accents isn’t good business. I’m not going to debate abt this topic if anyone replies bec no one would debate this topic if the Indian accent was replaced w/ a gay stereotype.

Do you just push a repeat button everytime you post? If Shenaz isnt offended why should anyone else be? It wouldnt offend me or my gay relative if someone joked about them because they have a sense of humor which you obviously lack…dont watch at all if it bothers you so much! Maybe if you pulled out that asian you seem to have stuck up your donkey hole you might finally develop a sense of humor too!

I still think i prefer Rama at the bar and not Jcow…she was a money hungry schemer and couldve had many opportunities to be the next Karen Woleck with some of Shelters many wealthy gentlemen customers!
Cutter did a good Kermit. I still dont understand why Blair would hire Cutter after what he and Aubrey plotted against Blairs cousin Kelly and Joey Buchanan, or is this plotline just totally 4gotten?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
