Mr Kapoor spoke to DNA about being on the show: "Family Guy is one of the biggest shows on the planet. It has made people roll with laughter with its witticisms since its inception. I have always been a huge admirer of this show. The experience of plunging myself in that absolutely crazy world of the Griffin family, was both surreal and exciting. After the rich pedigree of stars who have lent their voices to the show, I was both humbled and honoured to be given this opportunity. The role was fun and challenging at the same time, I am really glad that the fans in India will be able to watch the episode."
