Hailing from London, England, Kamal Khan is no stranger to the performing arts. In fact, he’s been featured in a variety of musicals, television shows and commercials and is now expanding his repertoire to include mashups of Bollywood and English music creating a unique fusion of eclectic sounds and beats. Kamal played and sang regularly at the House of Blues on Sunset bringing his original music and fusing it with several Elvis numbers and with Bollywood dancers to create a unique market that his audiences love.
Khan’s thirst to pursue his artistic passion came when he was just 18 years old. After playing the lead of “Tony” in West Side Story he went on to train and perform at the prestigious National Youth Theatre in London. Spotted by MOT Models, the London talent and modeling agency, he was quickly engaged for print and commercial work modeling for names like Virgin Atlantic, Ford, Nike. During this time, he continued to hone his craft performing at various venues throughout the UK.
The biggest breakthrough, however, came at the West End Fringe, when Khan played Romeo, in Romeo and Juliet. The UK Press Evening Standard hailed his ability to succeed as a South Asian actor in a Shakespearean world calling him, “exceedingly likeable.”
Multi-talented Khan continued to astonish the South Asian and British communities gaining success in the world of performing arts. His South Asian face became synonymous with Fortune 500 companies including Ford, Nike, Virgin Atlantic, Royal Navy and Sony. He was featured in numerous magazines including Asiana and UK newspapers, The Times, Independent and The Evening Standard, and has appeared in BBC’s “Eastenders” and ITV’s “The Bill” TV series. In 2011 he was snapped up to co-star in the South Asian television series “Outsourced” for NBC and more recently in 2018 he played an architect in a private jet alongside lead actors Scott Clifton and Courtney Hope. He has also done ADR Voiceover work for Quantico and is also booked for a voiceover for a major video game.
Most recently, Khan has released his music videos, and through his musical talents as a trained vocalist he’s embarked on his next big project—music videos that incorporate his Bollywood style fusing popular English pop songs.
“Los Angeles is the heart of the music and performing arts industry and I’m excited to be working and living here. The energy and the vibe is perfect for shifting gears between acting and music” said Khan.
