Most recently, Dayal appeared opposite Emma Roberts and Kristin Chenoweth in the romantic comedy “Holidate,” directed by John Whitesell and written by Tiffany Paulsen.

The short film “Fifteen Years Later,” in which he stars opposite Matt McGorry and Rachel Brosnahan, marked Dayal’s directorial debut. Currently, he is developing a project based on Anjan Sundaram’s memoir, “Stringer: A Reporter’s Journey into the Congo.”

On stage, he played the lead in The New Group's twice-extended Off-Broadway comedy hit, “Rafta Rafta,” by Ayub Khan Din, named by Entertainment Weekly as one of the 10 best plays of the year.
