Mini Bio (1)

How come a diplomat at the UN, an international civil rights attorney that represented Native Americans and a political activist that sat on a hunger strike for social justice for Dalits (Untouchables) in India at the National University, end up becoming an actor in Hollywood? That's a good question to ask Rao Rampilla, an American Actor based in New York City.

Rao came from radical politics in India and kicked out of the National University for his fight for social justice for Dalits. He came and settled in America. After living here so long, he realized that there are no radical politics in America. When he became an actor accidentally after the events of 9/11/2001 having lost his business project at the WTC, he embraced acting full-time and has been working as a full-time actor. There were times he wanted to go back to his lucrative legal and diplomatic career. But something in his heart kept him as an actor. He realized that given no radical politics in America, he discovered acting gives him a safe space to express his radical self. That's why he continues to embrace and journey on as an actor.
