Is the language of the Romani similar to the dialects of India?

A professor once shared this info with a class I attended. Just checking to see if anyone knew it to be valid.

I went to a Romani cultural museum in the Czech Republic once and there was a whole wall dedicated to explaining where the Romani came from. Most agree that they originally emigrated from India, so I would expect their language to be similar to northern Indian languages.
