Meet Dr. Koothrappali’s wife (for a few seasons before she became his ex-wife). We never learn Mrs. Koothrappali’s first name, and we see her only through video chat, just like her husband.
We know that she used to work as a healthcare employee in New Delhi. She has made an appearance in seasons 1 to 5 and in seasons 8. Her character is definitely a memorable one!

He studied theater and performing arts at the University of Toronto and has been working in comedy and drama, on-screen and as a voice-over talent, since 1976. In 1997, he landed a big acting gig on "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery." He is recognized for his role as Babu Bhatt on "Seinfeld" and his role on "The Big Bang Theory."

Alice Amter moved in her 30’s to Los Angeles in order to pursue acting. She played the role of Dr. Kapoor in "Hot in Cleveland." She is most recognized for her role in "The Big Bang Theory."
Casey Sander as Mike Rostenkowski – Then
Meeting parents is never easy, especially when that parent is Mike Rostenkowski. Mike plays Bernadette’s father and Howard’s father-in-law.
Mike is a hardened and retired police officer. Bernadette warns Howard about mentioning Jimmy Carter, organic food, gun control, and foreigners. We see him in seasons 5,6,7, and 9.
