Utkarsh Ambudkar (Pitch Perfect, The Mindy Project) considers Lin-Manuel Miranda to be family. They grew close doing freestyle hip-hop shows together. Utkarsh was also the first person to play Aaron Burr when Hamilton the musical was still being developed. He realizes now that he didn't make the most of it. "I was not aware of how large of a situation and an opportunity I was being given at the time," he tells Travon. But Utkarsh has made his peace with how things turned out— in large part by working on a hip-hop musical all his own.
