The definitive guide to South Asian lingo

Definition 1 of 1


A role in a film or TV show that is so small and inconsequential that it couldn't have earned the actor anything more than breakfast money. That too, breakfast at the nearest Darshini.

Can be used in non-screen related circumstances as well.


Lokesh: Hey, I heard Karthik was in Mugaru Male!
Mahesh: Ya da, but it was an idli-vada role.

Chitra: Hey, I heard Kanchana has been brought on board Operation Desert Storm!
Harshini: Yeah, but she's in a chindi, idli-vada position.
