You guys are saying he’s “tall” for an indian, but he’s born in Chicago and raised in Texas lol. Indians from india average 165cm, not Indians who were born and raised in the West. 5”9.5 is pretty average for a well nourished indian as @bruhbruh said lol. I’m half indian, I’m 6”0.5,
Jayk said on 21/Jan/22
the average in that area is around 165cm in usa equv of 176cm he would be like 189cm. Good looking guy actally.

He's right. The average Indian male according to Google is 5'5 so he is on the tall side. Also you don't see any grown men shorter than 5'9 3/4? You're a troll

@Hayden Bruh, that height is pretty average for a well nourished Indian. In fact I don't see any grown men shorter then that.

@Christian: yea I see some evidence of tilt perhaps

Can look near his listed 5'9.75" next to 5'8.25" (at the time) Jenny, but looks more 5'9" flat with Rob.
Zampo said on 21/Oct/18
A high chance he could measure under this listing. Probably 5'9.5-5'9.75 range, I think 177 cm flat is fine for him. It's a reasonable listing.
Nik said on 19/Sep/18
He is around his listed height!
RedFire said on 26/Jul/18
A proper 5'9.64.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/May/18
He looks 5ft9 but he's slouching...good looking dude
World Citizen said on 11/Nov/17
Looks more 5 ft 9.25 here
Bobby said on 25/Sep/17
He doesn't look almost 2 inches taller than Rob. Elden Hanson from Daredevil does, but this guy? No way. Next to Jenny, I can see 5'9.75 even 5'10, but next to Rob, 5'9.5 might be nearer, maybe even shorter like 5'9.25.

"About 5'10 on a good"

Is more like it :)
Mark(5'9.5") said on 4/Jul/17
He will edge me out but 5'11"? 🤢🤢🤢
Andrea said on 18/Apr/16
About 5'11 on a good day, Rob? That means in boots and earlier in the day? He doesn't look much over 5'9 with you...
At least he says "on a good day", which in celebheights terms means a lot of thing! :)
Editor Rob
on a good day is a way of covering a quarter or more. He's far from his claim up close though.
Sarah said on 1/Aug/12
He's a little over 5'9"
mofo said on 7/Jun/09
Wow this guy is very good looking probably the best on celeb heights (And Iam a straight man).
Can look 5ft10 sometimes but also 5ft9 also. I am going say around 5ft9.5 not quite 5ft9.75 but certainly not just 5ft9 flat.
Bolo said on 15/May/09
I'll tell you what though. For a very skinny dude he has impressive shoulder width. Possibly accounts for why he looks taller on the show (gives larger appearance).
Katrina said on 3/May/09
I think 5'9.75 seems to be accurate about him, I never thought of him as short and 5'9 guys look pretty short normally
MD said on 18/Nov/08
Here he is with 5'11" Jimmy Jean-Louis who's also on the show:

Really, Rob, the guy routinely looks closer to 5'9" than he does to 5'10", no?

Editor Rob
if he appears at london film con in July I would get a double shot with him. He could be a 5ft 9.5
Lx said on 11/Nov/08
there's not a 2 inch difference! maybe like 2 or 3 centimeters. i really dont get your height measuring sometimes. it's just his hair that makes him look taller
bam said on 22/Oct/08
i thought he was taller than pasdar on heroes? He gives an easy 5'11 impression.
DMEYER said on 19/Oct/08
rob how come you list him 1.75 in taller than you

Editor Rob
well, he isn't quite a 5ft 10 guy to me, but he's not just 5ft 9, I would say near 5ft 9.5 is close, he is also near adrian pasdar height aswell.
Anoymous said on 7/Oct/08
he looks the same height as you, rob.
Zach said on 2/Oct/08
this guy looks like a good 6 footer in Heroes, maybe because he's rake thin?

tv makes a person look alot taller, same thing with Milo, he looks lanky in Heores, but he's 5ft 8?

i live in kerala and in the fishing villiages it's not uncommon to see several 6'8 men, now i don't know if it has to do with the fish or what, but very tall men there. impossible to give an avg cop killa it's futile, so diverse are indians that it's impossible that you're right about 5'7 or 5'5. adi sounds like someone who actually has seen india and knows about the people there, so i would take his advice as well as mine.
uhh said on 26/May/08
indian people arent even a "race"...south indians, north indians, northeast indians....the only thing they have in common is the word "indian"

genetically, linguistically, and culturally, everything else is different.

average height per region of india would make more sense
B nn said on 17/May/08
Yes, you're right C. ,I've completed both seasons of HEROES, and Sendhil looks like a 5'11 guy. Maybe his straight pants creates the stretch...
Anonymous said on 8/Apr/08
Yeah, I'm just not seeing (even if he's slightly slouching and taking into account shoes) anything over 5'9", really.
Josh said on 8/Apr/08
176cm the most. He really doesn
Joe said on 8/Apr/08
5-9 seems dead on.
peli said on 7/Apr/08
175cm i would say
sweetchari said on 7/Apr/08
He is a very attractive guy! :)
C. said on 5/Apr/08
He always looks taller on Heroes. As in, 5'11". He looks no more than 5'9" in this picture, but he looks as if he's leaning. If so, he'd be 5'10" I suppose.
j-c said on 5/Apr/08
Thank you for this pic Rob. He looks 1m74 max even if you had bigger shoes, that makes him 1M76 max.

Editor Rob
I don't have bigger shoes. I showed the sneakers I'm wearing, a 1-inch adidas samoa. Sendhil is wearing just very basic dress shoe which I think is maybe 1.1 inch, hence barely any difference.

finally someone acknowledged the diversity of height in india. i'm a keralite living in thiruvilla and see several tall men and women. one of my classmates he is 6'9, he comes up past the door so he may even be 6'10. the 5'5 avg is not realistic at all.
TNTinCA said on 4/Apr/08
Hmmm. Doesn't appear to be more than an inch of difference between you and him, Rob. Is the picture a little eroneous then? I notice he is leaning in a bit.
Chris175 said on 4/Apr/08
rob you look 5-9 a lot of the time
bigkid said on 4/Apr/08
i'm 6' 7" and 16yo. I met him last week. he's real nice. I know I had 9 inches on him. 5'10" would be about right too.
Adi said on 3/Apr/08
the overall average male indian height would be 5'6-5'7.
for females around 5'2-5'3

Just-in-time what kind of crack are you smoking? The average Indian height is not 5'5". Indians are a very diverse race. They can range anywhere from 6'+ Punjabis to 5'5" Malus. The average Indian height is 5'8" or 5'9".

hey hero
i have travelled all across india.punjabis i think would average at 5'9.south indians ive seen the height chart is extremely diverse.there were a many 6+ people and there were many 5'5 people as kerela particularly the younger generation is unusaully much taller than thier parents.most colleges youll go to you'll find that the new average comes to be around 5'8 .and most have them have short parents.i live in mumbai and most keralaites i know are above 5'10.i think the punjabis and the younger generation keralaites are the tallest people in the country.

I like your room rob !!!
Jimmy said on 3/Apr/08
About average height in india, i agree that average in punjab is higher, im a 5'9 guy born in europe but both my parents are punjabi (dad is only 5'3 and mom is only 5'2). When i was in india last year, in punjab, many told me i had a gud height, not extremely tall, but i was tall. I am not talking about the sikh community or jats.

I think in this sikh, jat community average male height may be 5'9" (certainly not more) , overall in punjab you could say 5'7" is average. In india on its whole maybe 5'6".

MD said on 2/Apr/08
I'm not seeing a nearly two inch difference at all, either, Rob.
Anonymous said on 2/Apr/08
Looks only 5'9 at the most.
Anthony said on 2/Apr/08
Great pic, Rob.

Editor Rob
they printed out a map like the one in the cast shot ,a href= target=_blank>here. I wish they'd have done the angle much wider to get it all in though...
miko said on 2/Apr/08
I only see 5"9 here.
MD said on 23/Mar/08
Rob, are you going to post the pic of Sendhil, here?

Justin-in-time, no one ever implied Sendhil was short rather he looks much taller on the show than when he's interviewed and live.

Editor Rob
in early April I will.
MD said on 23/Mar/08
Yeah, he does look surprisingly tall on the show. I was kind of surprised to see him in interviews on the late-night shows. He was definitely shorter than Jay Leno on the Tonight Show some months ago. You didn't get any pictures with him, did you?

Editor Rob
yes I got a photo with him. I also met David Anders and Santiago Cabrera for my heroes collection aswell. I thought Anders looked pretty near his 6 foot claim
MD said on 21/Mar/08
Funny, I was just about to request he be added, and was going to say that he doesn't look much taller than fellow castmate Milo Ventimiglia. This looks about right, maybe just a bit shorter, but not much. I would have guessed 5'9" or 5'9.5", actually.

Editor Rob
I met him last week and wouldn't change the 177cm listing. He was wearing typical shoe heel like 1.1-1.2, although it was a kind of ankle boot, I had on adidas samoa that day.

Actually, my Mother even commented saying he looks shorter than he does on the show. But Sendhil himself says for the character he tries to adopt a solid posture.
Anthony said on 29/Sep/07
177 cm looks right.
Jim said on 8/Sep/07
I was in Singapore too. I'm 6' and was actually taller than him by an inch or 2, so he's likely a 5'9'' or 5'10''
Leon said on 7/Sep/07
I met him in singapore and i'm 5'8 but when was near him i was same height
Glenn said on 3/Sep/06
Thanks Rob.weird pic.I now remember him looking pretty tall.met him in 2004 as well.
Glenn said on 3/Sep/06
Also a member of Ministry at the moment too.

One of the most underated bands ever.actually Rob,lets change this to album Hosannas from the Basments of Hell one of the greatest albums of all time and the album of the year by far in a dull year for music.

since I've no idea on this guy, I'll mention its your estimate at the top
