Orhan Awatramani is often spotted with leading Bollywood stars.

Calling himself a “marketing genius”, Orry revealed that he used to be a waiter.

He said: “So, back in the day, when I used to buss tables, at our group, a little waiters’ group…”

According to his LinkedIn profile, Orry is a Mumbai-based social activist and works as a Special Project Manager at the Reliance Industries Limited Chairperson Office.

Speaking to Cosmopolitan India, Orry stated that he “works very hard”.

He elaborated: “I am working on myself. I am going to the gym, I am doing a lot of self-reflection, sometimes I do yoga, I go for a massage, I am working, but I am working on myself.”

On what he does for a living: “Everyone wants to know this?

“I’ll tell you exactly what I said in my first job interview to my boss as of today, ‘You know, ma’am, growing up I wanted to be an aeronautical engineer.

“But what am I today? I’m a singer, a songwriter, a fashion designer, a creative director, a stylist, an executive assistant, a shopper, and sometimes a football player, I don’t know.

“I feel like life is about having dreams. Inflate your dreams, give them wings to fly, and seize every opportunity.

“I looked her in the eyes and said, ‘I’m the kind of person that if you ask me to paint something for your wall, I’ll paint the entire house’.”

Orhan Awatramani is pictured with lots of Bollywood stars. But what does it take to be his friend?

He said: “I have graduated from the school of life. My experiences have been my education. And I am a boy, who has lived.

“(To be his friend) You have to be famous. If I am advertising the good times, babe, I am advertising the bad times.

“You click with me, I click with you.

“I am a marketing genius… Friendship is a complicated thing, it is not a simple thing like you liked my picture and I liked yours. It is beyond that.

“It’s – you have to look good in my pictures… Rakhi Sawant and I also have a really close bond.”

Despite being regularly pictured with Bollywood celebrities, Orry admitted that he only considers a few of them friends.

He explained: “I wouldn’t really say I’m friends with anyone in the ‘film industry’.

The people I’m friends with are actually my peers. We’re the same age; we all went to school and college at similar times.

“There are only a few people who I consider industry friends and who I met only in the industry, like Bhumi Pednekar.”

“We didn’t know each other until a couple of years ago, but we’re really good friends now.”

Discussing his fashion choices, Orry said at school, there was no uniform so the students were allowed to experiment.

He recalled: “I went to a boarding school in Dhanushkodi in Tamil Nadu. No uniforms.

“While they allowed children to experiment with their looks, they did have some rules, you couldn’t wear mini-skirts, you couldn’t come to school with a mohawk on your head and so on.

“Also, because it’s a boarding school, your parents have no say about what you’re wearing.”

He said the first time he was pictured by the paparazzi was because of Janhvi Kapoor’s Instagram Story.

On if he has any relationship red flags, Orry said he “loves drama” and the more flags, the “more attractive the person”.

Speaking about the mysteries of his life, he added:

“I’m an open series, I think. I feel like there are several books in this series.

“I’ve changed personalities like 30 times in the last few months.”

Dhiren is a journalism graduate with a passion for gaming, watching films and sports. He also enjoys cooking from time to time. His motto is to “Live life one day at a time.”
