Meera SyalMeera Syal
Whilst studying at Manchester university, Meera Syal won the National Student Drama Award for her play One of Us.

She appeared in the Sammi And Rosie Get Laid during the late 80s. A role in Band Of Gold followed. It was sketch show The Real McCoy that first introduced Meera to the nation as a writer and performer. A very funny look at multicultural Britain, it also introduced her to Kulvinder Ghir.

Meera and Kulvinder would go on to collaborate on Goodness Gracious Me, along with Sanjeev Baskhar and Nina Wadia. This sketch-show broke through to the mainstream audience The Real McCoy hadn’t, making stars of everyone involved.
