The Rituals of Kumar Pallana

Wes Anderson loves Kumar Pallana. Fans of the director will immediately recognize him as Kumar from Bottle Rocket, Mr. LittleJeans from Rushmore, Pagoda from The Royal Tenenbaums, and the old man from The Darjeeling Limited. But did you know Kumar Pallana is also an accomplished entertainer, plate spinner, acrobat, and yoga instructor? I didn’t, but after watching this short video, I’ve learned this and more of the amazing 93-year-old and no longer wonder why Wes Anderson loves him so much.
