Harish Patel

Biography

A stocky, heavyset character actor whose obesity and authoritative appearance prompted him to specialize in domineering types such as patriarchs, building supervisors, and no-nonsense employers, actor Harish Patel debuted onscreen in the early '80s, and thereafter repeatedly shuffled back and forth between Indian and British productions. Some of Patel's more visible credits include the role of Fizzy in the Udayan Prasad-directed, Hanif Kureishi-scripted seriocomedy My Son the Fanatic (1997), and a portrayal of the slightly crabby landlord Mr. Goshdashtidar in David Schwimmer's offbeat romantic comedy Run, Fat Boy, Run (2007). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
