ABOUT ME

Kiroshan Naidoo is an Indian South African actor, writer and filmmaker. As a young boy he showed a keen interest in the arts, where he would perform at the annual family Christmas parties. This sparked a passion for acting. Once he graduated high school he went on to study acting at the University of Cape Town. In 2016 he was awarded the prestigious Fleur du Cap theatre Award for most promising student. And went on to perform in numerous theatre shows around South Africa.

 

Always dreaming of being a film actor, Kiroshan set out to make this dream a reality. Seven years into his career and he's performed for big studios such as Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, BBC, Netflix and the local streaming platform Showmax.

 

He believes film and the arts has the ability to entertain but at the same time move communities forward. This led to the co-creation of Roommate Productions, creating series and film that look at marginalized voices in South Africa (notably Queer and Indian stories) in a comedic and heartfelt way. In 2022 their series Till Next Time (co-written and co-directed by Kiroshan) received a nomination from the South African Film and Television Awards for best Online Content.
