Born in 1984 in Stockport, Greater Manchester, Sacha Dhawan is an English actor who stars as Manmeet on the NBC comedy series Outsourced. Though he started acting at the age of 12, he honed his skills at the Laine-Johnson Theatre School in Manchester and attended Aquinas College in Stockport.
Some of Dhawan's work in the United Kingdom include recurring roles in Weirdsister College and Out of Sight. He also appeared in the mini series The Last Train, and episodes of EastEnders, Altogether Now and City Central.
Dhawan originated the role of Akthar in Alan Bennett's play The History Boys but his performance in Bradford Riots was what won him the 2007 Royal Television Society Award for On-Screen Breakthrough.
Most recently, he appeared in the drama, Wired, as Ben Chandrakar, alongside Jodie Whittaker and Laurence Fox.
