Interview: Romesh Ranganathan

Here's an interview I did with Romesh Ranganathan for the Evening Standard. Despite what he might seem like onscreen in the flesh Ranganathan is a lovely bloke and easy to chat to. Which is not to say that his perma-grumpy persona on Asian Provocateur is faked. I'm sure he has his bad days like the rest of us. Except that unlike the rest of us when he has a bad day he is very, very funny. 


TV Review: Asian Provocateur, BBC Three

One of the television joys in 2015 was seeing Romesh Ranganathan looking pissed off in the first series of Asian Provocateur when he tracked down his Sri Lankan relatives. Now there is the chance to see him looking pissed off again in the second series in which he tracks down his North American relatives. And he has even more to be pissed off about, because this time his eccentric, nagging mother Shanthi has come along for the ride.
