Awards presenter

Sanjeev Bhaskar enjoyed huge success with The Kumars at No.42, in which he hosted a chat
show from the family living room. The show won an Emmy Award, and the personal approval
of Nelson Mandela who enjoyed it so much he invited the cast to interview him in his own

After an early career in marketing with IBM, Sanjeev first made his name with the ensemble
sketch show Goodness Gracious Me. Starring Meera Syal, to whom he is now married,
Kulvinder Ghir and Nina Wadia, the show transferred from radio to television, becoming a cult
favourite and a milestone in British comedy, and went on to play to sell-out audiences on tour.
On stage, he has played King Arthur in Spamalot and on screen has appeared in Anita and Me,
The Mystic Masseur, Notting Hill and The Guru, and picked up a three picture screenwriting
deal with Miramax.
