Rules of Engagement (2007 – 2013) – The role of ‘Timmy’ originally was only supposed to be a one to three episode appearance. This was to offer David Spade’s character (Russell) someone to verbally spar with but the millions of fans who tuned in to witness the side-splittingly funny dynamic between ‘Russell’ and his ever-accommodating assistant ‘Timmy’ were utterly hooked. 

In March 2015, Adhir became engaged to actress Emily Wilson of series General Hospital. The couple married 01st October 2016 in Palm Springs.

Adhir and Emily welcomed baby girl, Mira on the 23rd March 2021.
