Sheena Melwani is married to Dinesh Melwani, who is a transactional attorney and vice chairman of Mintz Levin. More people would recognize his Facebook and TikTok usernames and Instagram handle, @therealIndiandad.

However, his presence isn’t widely known, and he doesn’t have that much of a significant public presence.

He only started gaining recognition after appearing on his wife’s TikToks in 2020 and has garnered many followers since. She called him Trid, and at the beginning, her followers couldn’t tell if he was her husband or father, but soon caught up.

Dinesh was born in 1978, on the 30th of June. Although he was born in Mumbai, India, he moved to Canada to pursue his education and currently lives in Natick, Boston, Massachusetts, in the U.S.

In Canada, he studied at the Canadian public research university, McGill Institution. He began his studies at the university in 2001 and got a Faculty of Law Bachelor in 2004. He also earned a law degree from Concordia University.


Dinesh was a lawyer at Bingham McCutchen between September 2005 and November 2014. His career began with a partnership at Morgan, Lewis, and Bockius LLP in December 2014. At this worldwide company, Dinesh was an associate until February 2018.

Before becoming a vice chairman at Mintz Levin, he served in the legal section of Mitsui & Co. Ltd. in Japan and the Tokyo office of a global law firm.

He was responsible for any legal issues in South, Central, and North America for several lines of Mitsui’s business.

In the beginning, the Melwanis used to hide Dinesh’s face in videos and on social media websites. They announced that they would reveal his face once the channel has hit more than a million subscribers.

Eventually, Dinesh revealed his face in the video where Sheena was singing “Better.” in July 2022.

Since then, he’s garnered a lot of fame, and plenty of people have started referring to him as “TRID,” or The Real Indian Dad.

The Beginning of the Story: How Did the Couple Meet?

Sheena met her husband, Dinesh, in Boston in the early 2010s, during the birthday of a common friend. They dated for about 10 years before they made their relationship official.

Throughout the duration of their relationship, Sheena and Dinesh had two children together. The first child is a daughter called Zara, and the second is a son called Jai.

Almost all of Sheena’s TikToks with 10M+ views are with her husband, Dinesh. The duo makes incredibly entertaining shorts, with the husband’s playful banter and Sheena’s lively, fun personality taking the lead.

There’s a video with them playing the “If I Was” game that’s both hilarious and wholesome to watch. She asks him what she would be if she were a color, season, and animal, and Dinesh gives unexpectedly hilarious answers.

The couple also has a video where Sheena is doing the “Fingers in His Water” prank. The premise is to test your partner’s reaction—mainly disgust—when you stir their water using your fingers.

Dinesh was flabbergasted in the beginning and kept asking why she was doing that. Then he played along and took the ice out of her drink using his hand. He even added to the drink by first pouring some into his hand and then into the glass!

Their most viewed TikTok has about 30 million views, and it’s about Sheena stuffing the washing machine with too many things. Dinesh even complains that she ruined a washing machine before, and he does it in the funniest way possible.

His quick, candid, yet witty reactions are the reason the couple gets so many views on their videos!
