After years of studying music, playing the trombone and guitar, fronting a punk band, and a short stint as a DJ for a Chicago radio station, Sunil decided to pursue his other passion – the law. Specifically, Criminal Law, much to the dismay of his parents (weren’t there other fields within the law that were safer and less sordid?). But then, Sunil accepted a dare to audition for a play in his first year of college (at which point his parents sang the praises of the honorable and upstanding profession of Criminal Law) and soon he graduated Cum Laude from Indiana University’s prestigious Theatre & Drama program, with a double major in Communications. Luckily, his parents eventually came around!

From there, Sunil moved to New York City to pursue his career as an actor. There, he met cousins he never knew he had, fellow South Asian actors and filmmakers with whom he joined to make groundbreaking films and theatre, and the woman of his dreams (who also happened to be from the north side of Chicago!). The two of them currently reside in Los Angeles with their mischievous and adorable son and daughter, where Sunil continues to work as an actor in film, television, theatre, animation, and video games, as well as an award-winning audiobook narrator.

Sunil Malhotra was born in New Delhi, India, and arrived in Chicago at the age of 6 months old after his flight crash-landed. At least that’s the official story. He’s been making entrances ever since…
