Happy Birthday, Omi Vaidya!

Best known for his relentlessly hilarious performance as the geeky Chatur in 3 Idiots, Omi Vaidya celebrates his 29th birthday today, January 10. Originally from Los Angeles, USA, Omi Vaidya found himself making inroads into the big, bad world of Bollywood when he was cast as the quirky Chatur in 3 Idiots. With his wobbly speech and anglicised Hindi, Omi won the hearts of his audience and his critics, and quickly became a household name. Since then he has appeared in Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji, Desi Boyz and Players. Omi has studied filmmaking from New York University and was also seen in the sitcom Arrested Development, the comedy series The Office and several commercials. Married to his long time girlfriend Minal Patel, Omi will next be seen in the Bipash Basu – R Madhavan-starrer Jodi Breakers. We wish Omi a very happy birthday and a great year ahead!
