A brief biography

Avijit Ghosh, April 17, 2020: The Times of India

Ranjit Chowdhry is best remembered as the zesty and sharp-witted youngster who looked always in need of a haircut in evergreen middle-class favorites such as “Khatta Meetha” and “Khubsoorat”.

At a time when Asian faces were uncommon in the US entertainment industry, Chowdhry also built a moderately successful crossover career. “Cosby”, “The Office”, “Prison Break”, “Law & Order”, “NYPD Blue” were some of the popular TV serials he acted in.

The actor, who lived in New York with his wife and 16-year-old son, had come to India for dental treatment some months ago, theatre personality Dolly Thakore told PTI.

Chowdhry — the son of theatre actor Pearl Padamsee and stepson of ad man Alyque Padamsee — tickled every funny bone with his karate-kicking act during the in-house brawl in “Khatta Meetha” (1978).

Amol Palekar, who starred with him in “Baton Baton Mein”, remembers Chowdhry as a cute, likeable young actor. “He was alive and keen to absorb suggestions. He was a livewire on the sets,” Palekar said in a message to TOI.
