Birth Date: November 30, 1973

Age: 50 years old

Birth Place: Cleveland, Ohio

Anjali Bhimani was born in 1974 in Cleveland, OH, and raised in Orange County, CA. She couriered a childhood fascination with performance through her college years at Northwestern University, where she majored in musical theater.

After graduating from Northwestern in 1996, Bhimani found work with a number of Chicago, IL-based regional theater companies, inevitably forming a creative relationship with playwright and director Mary Zimmerman. It was Bhimani's collaboration with Zimmerman that would eventually lead to her relocating to New York City as part of Zimmerman's production of "Metamorphoses" (1996), based on the 1st century Ovid poem of the same name, with which Bhimani made her Broadway debut in 2002.

She followed the turn with additional Broadway shows, including Andrew Lloyd Weber's 2004 production of "Bombay Dreams," kicking off her career on the screen around the same time. Bhimani appeared in two episodes of the acclaimed drama series "The Sopranos" (HBO 1999-2007) as the character Dr. Budraja before going on to play a series of background parts on series like "Flight of the Conchords" (HBO 2007-09) and films like "Confessions of a Shopaholic" (2009).

Bhimani enjoyed a four-episode stint as a minor character, a nurse, on the soap opera "All My Children" (ABC 1970-2011) as well as a recurring role on the hit sitcom "Modern Family" (ABC 2009-) alongside a slew of one-off roles on varied comedy and drama series. Bhimani starred among an ensemble cast in the comedy web series "Adoptable" (2016), and then in the subscription video on demand-produced comedy television program "Cassandra French's Finishing School" (Audience and Fullscreen 2017).
