              He shouldn't be doing up comedy films and end up as an comedian. He is great screen presence and has the potential to be a very menacing villain, on the lines of Pans Labrynth.

                  I agree that the fun he made out of others is wrong or not so good. But he is definitely one of his kind. If we take it in positive angle that was good until it haunts the personality or disability or non attentiveness of others. But, but but, what happened to him doesn't justify for that. I wish him all the very best and a successful carrier in Films.
