An Actor Has to Feel Unfulfilled – Boman Irani

Film and theater actor Boman Irani was introduced to cinema at a very young age; when he was only 12, his mother used to insist that he go and watch the same movie 20 or 30 times and learn from it. But he took a meandering path to becoming an actor. His first job was working as a waiter. He then sold burritos from the family store, and later became a photographer. Getting into acting was almost an accident.

Today, with more than 60 films under his belt including hits such as Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. and 3 Idiots, Irani has also forayed into television with an interview-based serial titled “The Achievers Club.” The problem with Indian cinema, he notes in this interview with Wharton operations and information management professor Kartik Hosanagar, is that there are no good scripts. Irani was a participant at the recent Wharton India Economic Forum (WIEF) held in Philadelphia.
