Radheyan's first assignment for NOW was reviewing the Ice Cube heist comedy First Sunday.

Born in Sri Lanka and raised in Scarborough, Rad currently lives in Leslieville with his wife and two adorable kids. He is also the film critic for CTV’s national breakfast show Your Morning, and regularly contributes to CTV News Channel and CBC Radio. Rad has never won an award.
