I respect Aziz's choice. It's good to hear his actual voice. 

The 32-year-old, who created his Netflix show because he wasn't being cast in more interesting roles, said he and his "Master of None" costar Patel ("Grandfathered") frequently debate about doing accents on-screen. They also deal with the issue head-on in their new show when the kid version of Ansari's Dev sees a montage of Indian characters on television -- characters who are often relegated to gas stations or are played by non-Indian actors. Dev is later asked to do an accent in the episode too.
