Tony Mirrcandani. An actor with a huge presence. Upscale, erudite.
A voice you will remember for years. Versatile. Pitch him against the world’s biggest stars and he will hold his own.
He is your academician, your older romantic hero, your multi-tiered villian. And, very surprisingly, your comic relief.
In 1996, within three weeks of deciding to embrace acting as a full-time profession and moving to Bollywood – to Mumbai – he landed a series regular role in Parchaiyan, a prime-time drama. Many more series and films followed and Tony became a fixture in the Bollywood scene.
His credits include Gadar and Koi Mil Gaya, both among the top grossing films in the history of Indian cinema. His reputation as an actor was re-affirmed in movies like Market, Kuch Kaha Aapne, Virudh and dozens of series and features.
In 2005 he bagged one of the leading roles in the multi-million dollar Anglo-Australian production of Merchants of Bollywood, directed by the Scotsman, Toby Gough. The play premiered in Sydney and travelled through Australia, the U.K., Germany, Switzerland and Austria to rave reviews for two years.
Tony moved to America in 2008 where he became immersed in New York theatre, then re-located to Los Angeles in 2011. His American film credits include David Kaplan’s Today’s Special, Nayan Padrai’s When Harry Tries to Marry and Gavin Hood’s Ender’s Game (Summit Entertainment) where he plays Admiral Chamrajnagar and co-stars with Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley and Asa Butterfield.
On TV, he has recently appeared as Guest Star in Bones (Fox), American Odyssey (Recurring – NBC), The League (FXX), Criminal Minds (Touchstone/Paramount), Emily Owens, M.D. (CW), The Spoils of Babylon (IFC) and other series.
