Host of Sony Entertainment Television Asia’s shows ‘The Zone’ and ‘View Asia’, Omar Khan will be making his Bollywood debut with hunk John Abraham in ‘Jhoota Hi Sahi’.
Omar who plays a gay character by the name of Amit in the film works in a bookshop with John.
On working with John and his Bollywood break, Omar said, “John was a great guy to work with, really supportive and I was never made to feel like a newcomer on the sets. It was a terrifying thought to have to dance as I have two left feet, but the choreographers were amazing at compensating for me.”
In 2004, Omar took part in Phizzical Productions talent development programme ‘BollyIdol’ supported by BBC, and gained experience of performing live on stage in the Bollywood musical ‘Precious Bazaar’. With Phizzical Omar has the opportunity to tour nationally in the Bollywood musical ‘Precious Bazaar’, ‘Romeo+Laila’ and ‘What You Fancy’.
Other plays he has acted in include ‘Wind in the Willows’ and ‘The Tempest’. Last year, he worked in the BBC film ‘Seven Dials’. Besides acting, Omar has written four plays ‘Romeo+Laila’, ‘What You Fancy’, ‘Retailiation’, and ‘Beauty & The Beast’, and works as a successful voiceover artist.
‘Jhootha Hi Sahi’ releases worldwide this weekend and is about a suicidal woman’s “final” call that mistakenly connects her to a man who gives her something to live for.
