If you are reading this page and you are Danny Leiner, John Cho, Kal Penn, Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg or any of their assistants, welcome and please contact the webmaster as I wish to attribute quotes from you about Errol and his performance from the dual commentaries on the Harold & Kumar DVD. 
 
Thank you.

Update: Errol will be reprising his role as Kumar's father, in Harold & Kumar 2.

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle
Released 2004, New Line Cinema
 
Directed by Danny Leiner.
Written by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg.
 
Errol portrayed Dr. Patel, father to Kumar and Kumar's older brother Saikat who was also a doctor at the same hospital as his father.
 
Early in the film, Errol had a voice over on Kumar's answering machine encouraging him in his next medical school interview.  Later Dr. Patel and Saikat met both Harold and Kumar at the hospital both unaware of the duo's quest for medical marijuana.
 
Dr. Saikat Patel was played by Shaun Majumder.  In 2005, Shaun would again act with Errol Sitahal in Plain Brown Rapper.  There Shaun played rapper Sundeep and Errol again portrayed his father Mandeep Rappa.
 
The film will be followed by the sequel Harold & Kumar 2 in 2008.

Errol Sitahal (voice-over)

Dr. Patel: Kumar.  It's Daddy.  I hope your interview today was good.  I'm calling to remind you that you have another one tomorrow with Dr. Wein from Cornell at 10 a.m.  Do not be late.

Dr. Patel: Kumar.
Harold   : Hey, it's your dad and brother.
Kumar   : S***.

Kumar   : Hey, Dad.
Harold   : Hi, Dr. Patel.
Kumar   : What's up?  Saikat. What's going on?
Dr. Patel: I hope you are here to apologize for what you did in your interview today.

Errol Sitahal & Shaun Majumder

Saikat    : What the h***'s wrong with you, Kumar?  God! You're 22 years old.  When are you gonna grow up and stop this post-college rebel bulls***?  Like your life is so hard.
Kumar   : Eat my b****, Saikat.
Dr. Patel: I will not tolerate this business from you any longer.  You have one more interview tomorrow morning, and if I hear from Dr. Wein that you were anything short of spectacular, I'll completely cut you off.
Kumar   : Dad, come on.
Dr. Patel: Daddy is not coming on anything.

Errol Sitahal & Shaun Majumder

Dr. Patel: You will be there, and you will behave.  I have put too much time and energy into you to let you go and f*** it all up!
Kumar   : You're absolutely right.  I'm sorry, guys.  Wow, I'm sorry.  Sorry.  It won't happen again, okay?
Dr. Patel: Good.  I will speak with you tomorrow.  Bye, Harold.
