On London’s West End stages, Ramamurthy starred in The Royal Shakespeare Company production of “A Servant to Two Masters.” He also starred in the New York premiere of Tom Stoppard’s “Indian Ink” and “East is East” directed by Scott Elliott.

He had a starring role in Gurinder Chadha’s “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife,”’ which premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. The actor also stars as Jai Wilcox inTV spy drama “Covert Affairs.”
