Hi Sinsull,

Do you mean the grandmother? That was Meera Syal.

If you ever get the chance to see Rolf Harris's show called Star Portraits, make sure you see the episode where Meera Syal's portrait is painted by the three artists. She is the epitome of beauty, IMHO, and each of the portraits were beautiful, each in the artists' own styles. It looks like the series website is out of action, but if you do aGoogle image search on the following terms you will see the thumbnail images of two of the paintings.

When I look at her in the Kumars it's really hard to see that vibrant young woman because she is so much in character that her own self is covered up, although she has the same impish humour, and maybe that's what Meera Syal will be like when she is older.
