Actor, Writer and Comedian, Osamah Sami featured on The Project for his successful movie, Ali’s Wedding. Australia’s first Muslim Rom-Com is “way overdue” according to Sami, “And I hope this is only the beginning.
You know, we’re part of the Australian Narrative, whether the bigots like it or not.” Sami “It is only a start, I think there’s a lot of stories, we’ve got heaps of stories of tell. We are on the land of stories, this is a land of song and story and dance.”
He discusses arranged marriages and how personal this movie is for him, based on his personal memoir, Good Muslim Boy.
Osamah Sami is an award-winning Australian of Iraqi origin, and Ali’s Wedding is based on his true Australian story.
