Actor Sarita Choudhury has been gracing our screens since Mississippi Masala (1991), a landmark film from director Mira Nair that showcased Black and Brown love in Greenwood, Mississippi. She’s gone on to act in Kama Sutra, The Hunger Games, A Hologram for the King, Homeland, Little Fires Everywhere, The Green Knight, and more. But her most recent role as 53-year-old independent real estate agent Seema Patel has everyone talking. Despite all the controversy the Sex and the City reboot And Just Like That faced, fans were often left wanting more Seema Patel, and Sarita Choudhury, in their lives.
