Orhan Awatramani, born to Jorj Awatramani and Shahnaz Awatramani on August 2, 1999, popularly known as Orry, comes from a wealthy family background and is now acquainted with the day-to-day happenings of every upcoming B-Star and their kids. A proud Leo, he studied at Kodaikanal International School, Tamil Nadu, and followed it up with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design from The New School, New York. He even attended New York’s Columbia University, where he graduated alongside now-Bollywood actress Sara Ali Khan in 2016. He claims to be an Indian social activist (according to Lehren) and is popularly known as, what we might call, “Bollywood’s BFF”.
His constant yet surprising appearances, including him posing very closely alongside Nita Ambani and Deepika Padukone, taking a picture with Kylie Jenner in her house on his birthday, and hanging out and partying with young Bollywood stars, make it very clear that he is not a proper 9-5 boy and works from all places while traveling voraciously and living his life to the fullest.
This makes the growing netizens all the more wonder, “Who is Orry Awatramani, and what does he stand for for the youth of this nation?”
Apart from working as a Special Project Manager at the Reliance Industries Limited Chairperson Office, Orry is a social media influencer with 463K followers on Instagram currently. Stating, “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard,”, Orry claims to be an advocate for “self-love,” stating clearly in an interview with Cosmopolitan India, “I am working on myself. I am going to the gym, and I am doing a lot of self-reflection. Sometimes I am doing yoga, and I get massages. You know! I am working.” Being known for his bold fashion choices and easy-going nature, he is known to have a lot of contacts in the film industry, especially among Bollywood NextGen stars including Janhvi Kapoor, Nysa Devgn, and Sara Ali Khan.
A popular fashion figure willing to take all risks for a life lived fully, he can be seen omnipresent in all fashion shows, including making his sartorial presence felt at the London and Paris Fashion Show, 2022, the Burberry Fashion Show, and even the Balenciaga show for the Paris Fashion Week, 2022. He was even an attendee for the Gala opening night of the NMACC (Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre) in Mumbai, which included celebrities like Zendaya, Tom Holland, Gigi Hadid, etc. Accompanying Bollywood stars and their kids on their exquisite vacations, he is sure to make an intrepid fashion statement, including the adornment of very expensive outwear like the Balenciaga outfit: a T-shirt worth Rs 65,000, trainers worth Rs 90,000, and accessories including a Rolex watch worth Rs 72 lakhs.
What does he mean for the Youth?
Orry has carved a niche for himself by constantly working on himself and being a proud, self-proclaimed fashion icon. His moral qualities, though a bit opulent, urge the youth to work on themselves and work for what they are truly passionate about. Acting as a role model for today’s youth, he displays his struggles in breaking free from the conventional India 9-5 routine and doing what he is truly passionate about. He might remind us too much of Bunny from “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, but the lesson remains the same: “If you don’t dictate the routine of life for yourself, life will dictate the routine for you.” We can just learn the lesson of carving our own niche, striving to be the best versions of ourselves, and working for what we are truly passionate about.
