It’s no surprise that Bollywood celebrities are photographed the minute they step out of their homes. But it does get surprising when someone who isn’t a Bollywood celebrity or an upcoming actor becomes the paparazzi’s favourite. This is the curious case of Orry – the most viral celebrity of 2023. There isn’t any information on what Orry does for a living. In fact, there is no credible information available online that reveals the mystery of his personal life. Internet’s favourite, Orry, is always spotted doing just one thing, that is hanging out with the big names of Bollywood and that makes him popular.

Here’s a comprehensive guide that tries to unravel the enigma behind Orry.

Orhan Awatramani, better known as Orry, is a resident of Mumbai. From Janhavi Kapoor to Kylie Jenner, he is spotted with everyone. At best, people know him as “Bollywood’s BFF.” You can think of any star or a star kid, and chances are that there will be a picture of the social media personality with them.

In November this year, a throwback video of Kiara Advani went viral. In the video, Orry extended his wishes for ‘Kabir Singh’. It was after this video that the actor revealed that he was her junior in school. In another interview, Orry mentioned he knows the celebs because they are the same age and they attended school and college at similar times. Multiple interviews have revealed that he attended a boarding school in Dhanushkodi, Tamil Nadu and he completed his graduation in Fine Arts and Communication Design from the prestigious Parsons School of Design in New York.

How did Orry suddenly get famous?

The world took notice of Orry when he posted a picture with Kylie Jenner on Instagram. The picture showed the two sitting close and giving almost the same pose for the camera. It was also when he attended the inauguration of NMACC this year and posted a picture with Nita Ambani that people slowly started getting interested in him. The curiosity around him piqued and the fact that nothing is available online about him just added fuel to the fire.

In an episode of ‘Koffee With Karan’ that featured Sara Ali Khan and Ananya Panday, Karan Johar asked them about Orry. Ananya called him “loved but misunderstood.” The fact that Bollywood celebrities knew him from close quarters made people interested in his life.

Paparazzi pages photographed him with Ajay Devgn and Kajol’s daughter – Nysa. The two were always spotted going out for dinners and parties. Orry’s Instagram page is filled with pictures of him with celebs.

How did he go viral?

When Cosmopolitan interviewed Orry, they asked him what he does for a living. Orry said, “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.”

The fact that he could come up with a funny answer yet not exactly answer the question made people start loving him. These days celebs live by a PR playbook where the answer to a media question is rehearsed. The fact that someone decided to be goofy made him an audience favourite.

Speaking on the MensXP podcast, Orry was asked the same question once again. This time he said, “You go for a job, you are a jobber. You paint, you are a painter. I am living, I am a liver. Yeah, I am a liver.”

These responses made him a Gen Z favourite. Instagram creators made videos of wanting to meet Orry and asking him about his life but that didn’t happen. However, it did make an even bigger star. Speaking to Hindustan Times, Orry revealed that he had called the paparazzi a lot of times before. He added that he doesn’t do it anymore. It’s likely because the paparazzi knows that the interest around him will make people click.

But Orry knew better. He capitalized on it and made it his signature pose. He poses with every celeb in the same way and that has become a pop culture moment.
