‘Proud directors like to repeat me’

‘Proud directors like to repeat me’
‘They like to work with me and most of the times they work out a role for me too. It has happened a lot. I have worked with a lot of directors on repeat basis. I am proud of this because it shows that they not only value you as a professional but also as a friend,’ Boman said in an interview.

Boman, who worked with Farah in Main Hoon Naa and Shirin Farhad Ki To Nikal Padi, says he was probably the first actor to come onboard for their upcoming film Happy New Year as she offered him the part during MHN success party. ‘I remember I was driving for the silver jubilee party of Main Hoon Naa when Farah called me. She asked me 'Boman, in my next film, I want you to do something bigger and I have got a beautiful role for you. Will you do it?' I said yes but the film did not take off at that time.

‘She finalised the script of Happy New Year during Shirin and again asked me. So, I would like to lay claim to the fact that I was the first person cast in Happy New Year, he says. And though he would not mind acting opposite Farah again after Shirin, Boman feels the director is at the top of her game when she is behind the camera. ‘Farah surprised us all with her confidence as an actor. She, however, had a headstart in directing as she is four films old. I would love to work with her as an actor but she has this wonderfully happy vision as a director that is completely planted on entertainment,’ he says.
