London born 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 his love of music.
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. 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 the lead 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.
Most recently, Khan has released his first music video and through his musical talents as a trained vocalist he’s embarked on his next big project—music videos that incorporate his Bollywood style and a fresh pop perspective.
“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.
