Southern Fried Asian: Vinny Chhibber

In a first for Southern Fried Asian, Keith welcomes a previous guest’s sibling, Big Sky star, Vinny Chhibber.

Keith and Vinny talk about the immigrant struggle and being part of a family that accepts the creative pursuits of its children. Then they transition into a discussion about subverting stereotypes on ABC’s hit drama, Big Sky, and how fellow Desi actors like Janina Gavankar helped open the door for more representation on the show. You can see a clip of this portion of the podcast on YouTube here:

Finally, Vinny shares how his love of sweets always bring him back home to rural West Virginia and invites Keith over to Chhibber Family Christmas dinner.
