Mimicry is the art of imitation, which is practiced the world over, from annoying siblings who repeat every word you say, to professional comedians who impersonate famous people onstage.
Mimicry comes from a Greek word for mime: a performer who silently imitates gestures and expressions. Usually mimicry refers to imitation that is meant to make fun of the thing imitated, often in an unkind way.
Someone who imitates one particular person without claiming a wide range, such as a lookalike, is instead called an impersonator. In very broad contexts, “impersonator” may be substituted for “impressionist” where the distinction between the two is less important than avoiding confusion with the use of “impressionist” in painting and music.

Usually the most “impressive” aspect of the performance is the vocal fidelity to the target – usually a politician or a famous person. Props may also be employed, such as glasses or hats, but these are now considered somewhat old-fashioned and cumbersome: the voice is expected to carry the act.
Mimicry is when you use your vocal skills to develop a sense of another persons personality backstage , hiding the flaws of characters if any on the screen or can be used to put a dramatic comic sense in characters on screen like the cartoons. Like if you see at Oggy and Cockroaches in India you will be having a lot of Bollywood characters voices played for the characters bringing smiles on faces of enormous children with a light in there eyes.
So mimicry is nothing but the best possible way to make someone happy without spending anything.
