Maulik Pancholy's Bio and Speech Topics: http://www.thelavinagency.com/speaker...

In this exclusive Lavin video, Maulik Pancholy discusses how his role as Jonathan on 30 Rock signals a positive change in Hollywood's depiction of diversity. Though his character is clearly Indian, his Indianess is "not what's being explored." Pancholy then discusses his role as Baljeet—on Phineas and Ferb—to further illustrate the degree of sophistication and sensitivity that creators and actors are bringing to the entertainment industry. Smarter shows (such as 30 Rock), smarter audiences (who demand to see more diversity on-screen) and a wave of multicultural actors and creatives (who are finally in powerful positions) have produced a perfect storm—helping to usher out an era of broad stereotypes, and inaugurate a new era in which "the whole story is told."

For speaking engagements, Maulik Pancholy is exclusively represented by The Lavin Agency.
