Comedy about young Indian man coming to live in North America looking for love and a better life

Looking for a nice PG-style movie from late 1980’s or very early 1990’s about a young man from India who dreams of coming to either Canada or the United States to start a new life and find a girlfriend. This is a very warmhearted nice film, primarily a vehicle for the young male Indian actor. I believe his last name may have been Choudry.

did it actually take place in canada or america, or was it a bollywood/hindi flick?
