Boman Irani is busy promoting his latest movie Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi (SFKTNP), which is slated to release this Friday, August 24. Addressing a promotional event on Tuesday in Vadodara, the Bollywood actor said he has found a good girlfriend in his on-screen flame Farah Khan.
The cast of Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi was at Limda village in the city. Talking to PTI, Boman Irani said, "I got a good girlfriend in Farah Khan....Mane aa chhokari bahuj game chhe...(I like this girl very much)." The actor added, "I enjoy playing the role of a hero..You see I have become an actor after working as a salesman selling underwear!"
Boman Irani and Farah Khan visited the institute as part of the film promotion. With his typical Parsi accent, Boman evoked peels of laughter from the students of a college at Limda village. They were presented with a miniature spinning wheel as the memento on the occasion. Talking about it, Farah said, "I would use it for making a towel for Boman as he has to cover himself with it during a scene in the movie."
Boman is playing a love-stuck Parsi salesman in the movie SFKTNP. "Until now, I have played roles like father of leading actresses including Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone among others. Now for the first time, I am playing a lead against a heroine, which gives me a special joy," he said.
Talking about her role, Farah Khan said that she had to shed the flab to fit into the character. "Destiny played a major role in turning me into a heroine with 'Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi'. I am happy to lose weight for the role. This is a clean and nice movie typical that of Sanjay Leela Bhansali," she added.
However, SFKTNP is a romantic comedy, which has been directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali's sister Bela Sehgal. The film is a love story between a middle-aged couple and the makers say that it will appeal to the youth and they are hopeful of good response from them.
