TV series for Bellamy's People character Mr Khan?
The BBC looks set to develop a TV series around the character of Mr Khan, a comic creation by Asian Network's morning radio show DJ Adil Ray.
The character is a delusional 'ageing Muslim' who is very enthusiastic about the Asian community. Mr Khan thinks of himself as a 'community leader' in Leicester, yet none of the locals seem to know who he is.
The Asian Network star and actor most recently played the character in Charlie Higson and Paul Whitehouse's spoof BBC Two comedy series Bellamy's People.
Adil Ray playing Mr Khan in Bellamy's People can be seen at the start of the below YouTube clip...
