Adhir Kalyan (born 4 August 1983) is a South African actor noted for his role as Timmy in the CBS sitcom Rules of Engagement.[1]

Kalyan was born in Durban, South Africa, to an Indian South African family. His mother, Santosh Vinita "Sandy" Kalyan, is a member of Parliament in the South African National Assembly, where she represents the Democratic Alliance.[2]

Kalyan completed his schooling at Marklands in Durban. Prior to moving abroad, he performed in a number of productions in South Africa, including theatrical adaptations of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol, an adaptation of Salman Rushdie's The Ground Beneath Her Feet, and the classical Shakespearean play Macbeth.

Kalyan starred in the short-lived American CW Television Network sitcom Aliens in America, as a foreign exchange student from Pakistan living with a Wisconsin family.[3] He portrayed recurring characters in the fifth season of the cable show Nip/Tuck,[4] and in the third season of the CBS sitcom Rules of Engagement, becoming a series regular in the latter's fourth season.

In 2009, Kalyan appeared in the film Paul Blart: Mall Cop as Pahud, a teenager who admired his girlfriend Parisa, in Up in the Air as a fired employee, and in the cheerleader comedy Fired Up. In 2010, he appeared in Youth in Revolt, and in 2011, he appeared in a minor role in No Strings Attached.
