As a South Asian in the entertainment industry, Sahil Mirchandani often finds that people who look like him are not represented in creative communities. Many times, he is the only South Asian in the room, and sometimes even the only person of color. By creating his own production company in 2018, Mirchandani is constantly able to give opportunities to BIPOC individuals who are interested in creative industries, and he can mentor many young creatives on how they can make their way in this industry that is fundamentally and historically White.


“I remember showing up to a table read after weeks of phone calls with a team, only to find out that everyone on this project was White. It was incredibly alienating and isolating to see that I was immediately ‘othered’ just by the simple, unchangeable, fact that my skin color is different. I really want to pave the way for other BIPOC creatives in this industry and show that Indian producers exist, can thrive, and have a place in this industry,” said Mirchandani.
