‘I think there are many situations where character actors are getting equal prominence like main leads, but eventually it is the kind of cinema that has to be explored. Finding Fanny is a great example of the same,’ the 54-year-old said in an interview.
Directed by Homi Adajania, the English language Bollywood entertainer Finding Fanny had Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone as the lead pair, but the film's USP was veteran actors - Dimple Kapadia, Naseeruddin Shah, and Pankaj Kapur - in key roles.
‘I am so glad that Finding Fanny found a great audience. I am very proud,’ said Boman, who began his acting career pretty late, but he was lucky to get meaty and memorable roles soon enough.
He started his film career in 2001 with Everybody Says I'm Fine!, but proved his mettle as J.C. Asthana in Rajkumar Hirani's 2003 hit comedy Munnabhai M.B.B.S. There was no looking back for him after that.
He followed it up with Being Cyrus, Lage Raho Munna Bhai, Khosla Ka Ghosla, Don - The Chase Begins Again and 3 Idiots.
