The LA-based actor returns to Bollywood with Abhinay Deo’s upcoming film, ‘Raita’, a comic caper, starring Irrfan Khan.


Abhinay added, “For this particular character in Raita, I couldn’t see anyone else other than Omi essaying it. We went the extra mile to reach out to him in the US and bring him back to Bollywood.”

Abhinay added,

Raita has gone on floors, but Omi joins the cast at a later date. “He begins shooting in May,” says Abhinay, who calls Raita a ‘Mumbai-centric quirky comedy’. “It falls in the same genre as Delhi Belly (2011). The comedy is situational.”


After ‘3 Idiots’, Omi starred in Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Dil To Baccha Hai Ji’ (2011), Rohit Dhawan’s ‘Desi Boyz’ (2011), Abbas-Mustan’s ‘Players’ (2012) and Ashwini Chaudhary’s ‘Jodi Breakers’ (2012).
