Meet Emily Wilson, popular as the wife of the 2021 CBS sitcom United States of Al star, Adhir Kalyan.
After the United States of Al’s trailer dropped in early 2021, it immediately sparked controversy as viewers believed that Adhir’s character (Afghan interpreter Awalmir, or Al) was pigeonholed — restrictions in drinking because of Al’s Muslim faith, people’s surprise when Al kisses everyone on the cheek as a greeting, and jokes about Afghanistan actually having things like WiFi. Moreover, Adhir is not Afghan.
So, while Adhir became the focal point for the movie’s critics, many fans also got interested in his personal life; especially his marriage life. Thus, here we are shedding light on Adhir’s wife over this Emily Wilson wiki.
Biography — Age, Birthday, Zodiac
Emily Wilson was born on May 28, 1985. That made her 35 years of age in 2021, two years younger than Adhir.
