He was born in Stoke Newington, and attended The Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School where he was a prolific performer in school plays. In 1965 whilst at the school, he was a member of the school team for BBC Television's Television Top of the Form. He achieved some fame as a boy treble, recording Benjamin Britten's Noye's Fludde with the Wandsworth School Boys' Choir, and songs by Schubert and Schumann. He sang with the Finchley Children's Music Group and then the London Boy Singers.

After his voice broke he turned to acting, achieving success on the stage and in television drama productions, including I, Claudius and Blake's 7. From 1968 until 1971 he was a Choral Scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge. He married Irene Lenihan in 1977.

Angadi committed suicide by hanging in 1981. His story was told during a BBC Four documentary on the schools' quiz programme Television Top of the Form on 17 April 2006.
