Manish Gandhi is an Indian theatre director and stage, film and TV actor. In 2011, Manish directed, produced and acted in Mike Bartlett’s Cock. Even though homosexuality was at that point decriminalised in India, LGBT issues rarely made it to the mainstream. In 2015, Manish performed Brown Shakespeare, promoting equality in the arts and was featured on the BBC World Service.
