Ravi K. Ross is a 13-year-old boy who was adopted by the Ross family and he was born in India. His first language is Hindi, but he is able to speak English, but with an Indian accent. He is very nice, caring, and naive. He is the owner of Mrs. Kipling and bringing her from India when she was just an egg.
Ravi is portrayed by Karan Brar.
Ravi is a normal kid. He loves video games, and his pet Mrs. Kipling. He is against violence, as seen in "New York, New Nanny". He loves his new life in New York, but he is still very interested in his country's culture and wants to show people that. He is fluent in Hindi, as shown in "The Talented Mr. Kipling" along with not being good in a crisis. Ravi worries about other people as seen in "Creepy Connie Comes a Callin'", when Bertram was supposed to be taken by a black shadow. In the episode "Are You Cooler Than a Fifth Grader?", it is revealed that he has a celebrity crush on Selena Gomez, saying that his peppers are hotter than her and then saying, "I love you, Go-Go".
Ravi was born in India, and then he was adopted by Morgan and Christina Ross, and he is also the last kid they adopted. They adopted Ravi a month before the events from "New York, New Nanny". It was revealed in "Gotcha Day" that Morgan and Christina originally thought they were adopting a baby due to a typo on his birth certificate. He is eager to learn American culture and loves his seven-foot Lizard, Mrs. Kipling. He seems to get pranked a lot by his brother Luke and his younger sister Zuri. Ravi's first language is Hindi, but knows how to speak English very well. He is really fun and loves family. It is possible he is from Calcutta, in British India, as shown in "Used Karma". Ravi and Mrs. Kipling watch The Real Housewives of New York but more often watch The The Real Housewives of New Delhi for a real catfight, as told in "The Talented Mrs. Kipling". He found Mrs. Kipling in a swamp in India, and he did "what any other boy would do to a rare Indian egg" - sit on it until it hatches.
In "Big Dreams & Big Apples", he, along with the rest of the Ross family, helped Austin, Ally, Trish and Dez get to Times Square in time so Austin can perform "Can You Feel It" and then they helped them go home. Later, in "Nanny In Miami", Jessie, Bertram and the Ross kids went to Miami with Team Austin & Ally and Jessie performed "Face To Face" with Austin.
Ravi looks like a typical Indian boy with sleek black hair, brown eyes and olive colored skin. He usually dresses with Indian-style clothes. He is not very tall, but he seems to be tall enough for his age. He is also skinny.
Jessie seems to have a close and friendly relationship acquainted with Ravi, but her friendly attempts are not always successful, as seen in the episode "The Talented Mr. Kipling". She always helps and gives Ravi advice, because he is usually picked on at school by the other kids. Jessie always supports Ravi and they love and care about each other.
Ravi is Luke's younger brother adopted from India. Luke enjoys pulling pranks on Ravi, but they do share a good brotherly relationship. They sometimes collaborate and play pranks on Bertram. They seem to be very close and love helping each other and they care and love each other a lot.
Emma is Ravi's older sister and Ravi is Emma's younger brother. They fight sometimes, in the first season of JESSIE, they used to fight more, but now they became closer to each other. They both love and care about each other, and help each other when they need to.
Ravi is Zuri's second oldest brother. Zuri and Ravi are extremely close. They care for each other a lot. Though, whenever Zuri knows Luke isn't on the spot, she blames Ravi for her mistakes, and unlike Luke, he never plots to get her back and accepts, though he gets her back by Jessie soon finding out and blaming Zuri. Sometimes, Ravi makes Zuri rather mad. When Zuri said she and Jessie had switched bodies, Ravi pretended to "play" with her, though this was very serious, but only in Mrs. Kipling's imagination.
Bertram is the family's butler. Bertram thinks that Ravi is the most responsible out of the Ross children. In the episode "We Don't Need No Stinkin' Badges", when a cricket jumped in Bertram's dish, Ravi spiraled into a world of lies, losing Betram's trust for a period of time, until Ravi payed his amends by giving back his prized possession that he lost in a butler fight.
Luke: Dez and Mrs. Kipling look really cool surfing.
Ravi: Meanwhile, even the manatees were laughing at me.
Luke: Here's Dez and Kipling chilling like Miami guys.
Ravi: For realseis?
Luke: [smiles] For realsies.
