Does anyone know what P.K. stands for since it's also the nickname people called the headliner (funny man from outer space) in the movie?

I think I remember it is explained by one of the characters at the beginning of the movie, after PK lands to Earth, but I remember no further, sorry!

Wikipedia says: "Due to his strange behavior, people assume he is drunk and call him "PK" (pee-kay, Hindi for "drunk")."

Looking up at notes I took after watching the film, I confirm that PK prounouced in Hindi means "Tipsy"!

Thx a lot Vincent, I'm also doublechecking the meaning of peekay in Indian by the help of a friend who is in India now. I'll only get back to you if it's wrong.
