Sanjeev Bhaskar in new animated comedy Rajesh Finesse

British comedian and actor Sanjeev Bhaskar, who is reuniting with Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Syal and Nina Wadia for a one-off special of the ground-breaking British Asian sketch show Goodness Gracious Me on BBC2 on 26 May, stars in a new Wildseed Studios animated pilot show Rajesh Finesse.

Written and animated by The Spin Kicks Bros, Rajesh Finesse explores the misadventures of its eponymous Anglo-Indian aristo cad, voiced by Bhaskar, and his easily corrupted English manservant.

A quintessentially British story told through the eyes of its very anarchic and unconventional lead character, Rajesh Finesse is both traditional and totally subversive. Expect to see the world of the Raj as you have never seen it before, having its deceptions and vanities shred to pieces by its protagonist.
