I'm a bitter man: Boman Irani

This year, we've seen Boman Irani go from a wildly funny character in Housefull 2 to an action-packed role in Tezz. As he gets ready with his next, Ferrari Ki Sawaari, Boman promises to give us something that's a little out of the ordinary.

This year, we've seen Boman Irani go from a wildly funny character in Housefull 2 to an action-packed role in Tezz. As he gets ready with his next, Ferrari Ki Sawaari, Boman promises to give us something that's a little out of the ordinary.

The feel-good comedy about a young boy's aspiration to play cricket at the Lord's Cricket Ground, might make you think that Boman might, once again, appear in a comic role. It's the sort we've come to expect from him, thanks to the Housefull franchise and, to an extent, the memorable character of Principal Sahastrabudhhe in 3 Idiots (2009).

But he says his role (he plays Sharman's father) in Ferrari Ki Sawaari is far from the usual: "I'm not doing my usual comic role. This is completely different from what I've done so far. Here, I play a bitter man who comes with a lot of frustration and (emotional) baggage. His pain and grief is beautifully shown in the film. This film won't be a gag fest, but it will still bring a smile to your face." At the moment, that's all the detail Boman seems willing to divulge about his character.

About the film, however, the actor can barely stop talking, and he is all praise for the director and co-actors: "It's a wonderfully crafted film. The film is Rajesh Mapuskar's (director) idea and he has been working on it for four years. Sharman (Joshi) and I are great friends, and that shows in the film."

Ask him, however, about his expectations from the film, and he comes up with an honest response: "We can only make a good film. Whether it will become a hit or not, is something that only the audience can decide."
