Vinay Virmani studied business at York University and then filmmaking and theatre at the prestigious Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.

His feature film debut as an actor and writer was in the Canadian comedy hit Breakaway (2011). The film had an all-star cast which included Rob Lowe, Anupam Kher, Sakina Jaffrey and Russell Peters. A few years later, Vinay changed his focus to another type of film genre when he starred in the critically acclaimed Hindi dramatic film David (2013).

Vinay sat down with me before ANOKHI’s 12th anniversary celebration to talk about his journey in filmmaking and acting. Vinay opened up about some insecurities and setbacks he has had to battle in order to shine the truest in the spotlight and how it’s his personal mission to support and promote the South Asian community and its talent on a mass scale. Vinay also spilled a few details on the upcoming Dr. Cabbie television series.
