Sanjeev Kohli

We're delighted to welcome writer, actor and broadcaster Sanjeev Kohli to Glasgow Mela 2015 as our main stage compère. 

Perhaps best known as Navid, the shopkeeper from Still Game - a role he recently reprised in a sell-out 21-show run at the Glasgow Hydro - he is also co-writer and co-star of award-winning Radio 4 comedy Fags Mags & Bags, and has appeared in The IT Crowd, Fresh Meat and Look Around You, and has written for Chewin' The Fat and Goodness Gracious Me.

Most recently he was seen fronting Blethering Referendum and I Belong to Glasgow on BBC1 Scotland.

As an actor he would like to think he has range, although he reluctantly admits that all of his roles thus far in his career have been 'Asian'.​ he is looking forward to joining Glasgow Mela's 25th birthday celebrations.
