Karan Brar (born January 18,1999), is an American actor, best known for his role as Chirag Gupta in the Wimpy Kid feature film franchise, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, as well as for his co-starring role as "Ravi Ross" on the Disney Channel comedy series, JESSIE.

Early life

Karan Brar was born on January 18,1999, in Redmond, Washington, to parents Jasbinder and Harinder Brar, who
are of Indian ancestry. He was raised in Bothell, Washington, and has one older sibling, a sister named Sabreena. Brar attended Cedar Wood Elementary School and studied acting at John Robert Powers and Patti Kalles workshops.


Brar began his acting career at the age of 10, co-starring as Indian middle-schooler, Chirag Gupta in the comedy feature film, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Born and raised in the United States, Brar naturally speaks with an American accent and worked with a dialect coach to perfect his Indian accent for the role. In April 2010, he appeared in the "Seeds of Compassion" advertorial campaign announcing the Dalai Lama's visit to Seattle, as well as appearing in educational commercials for American and Canadian schools.

In March 2011, Brar reprised his role as Chirag Gupta in the feature film sequel Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules. In October 2011, it was confirmed that he would also be reprising his role as Chirag for the third installment in the Wimpy Kid franchise, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, scheduled to be released on August 3, 2012.

In September 2011, Brar landed the role of 10-year-old Indian adoptee, "Ravi Ross" on the Disney Channel comedy series, Jessie. During pre-production of the show, the role of "Ravi" was originally intended to be a Hispanic boy named "Javier" adopted from South America, but casting directors were impressed with Brar during the audition process and ultimately decided to recreate the role specifically for him.

Personal life

Brar lives in the Los Angeles area with his parents and older sister. He is fluent in both English and Punjabi. When he isn't busy working, Brar enjoys figure skating, roller skating, swimming, hip-hop dancing and playing video games. Before moving to Los Angeles, Brar volunteered at his local church in the Bothell-Seattle area.
