Asif Currimbhoy (born 1928) is an Indian playwright writer in English.

Currimbhoy is India's first authentic voice in the theatre . He is one modern Indian playwright who has shown great interest in producing drama. Among the very few dramatists writing plays in English, he has made his d├ębut as a dramatist for the stage. His 29 plays are first and foremost meant for the stage. Born to an industrialist father and a social worker mother, Carrimbhoy's acquaintance with English language at a young age was responsible for him attaining mastery over the language. He pursued his higher education from the Wisconsin University and his love for Shakespearean drama has influenced his body of work. His first play Goa written in the 1964 deals with racial discrimination as a paradigm of postcolonialism.
