Ajay Mehta had a small role in ‘Sex and the City’
Mehta was previously in “They Shoot Single People, Don’t They?” The episode starts with Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) enjoying themselves being single.
However, their happiness sours when Carrie is pictured on the cover of New York magazine, questioning if she was single and fabulous. The whole article shames women for being single. They all decided to give certain men a try after that.
Samantha hooks up with William (Robert Montano), the owner of a salsa club. Samantha goes to a restaurant to meet up with him at the end of the episode, but she’s left waiting. Mehta plays the busboy, who serves her water as she waits. In the end, Samantha was stood up, and he kissed her. He offered to go home with her, but she decided to go home alone.

The trailer for the episode “Diwali” shows Carrie looking at new apartments. This means fans will see realtor Seema Patel (Sarita Choudhury) again. Anthony Marantino (Mario Cantone) also goes for a facelift consultation.
It looks like Seema will become even closer to Carrie. The last clip shows her celebrating Diwali with her family and Carrie. “Diwali is the Hindu celebration of light triumphing over dark,” she tells Carrie. “In Queens, it’s the celebration of my family asking me why I’m still not married.”
We then see them at the celebration with what looks like Seema’s parents. “The jig is up,” a woman says. She is standing next to Mehta’s character. The name for Mehta’s role hasn’t been revealed, but there’s a chance this is a completely new character.
Seema previously talked to Carrie about her struggles of finding love. It looks like Carrie will be her support facing questions about her love life.
