Boman Irani writes script & slaps himself
Wednesday, April 2, 2014 • Hindi Comments

In the upcoming hugely anticipated ‘Bhoothnath Returns’, both film’s lead Amitabh Bachchan and Boman Irani will be sharing screen space after 8 years.

What we heard that Boman, who will be seen essaying a role of a politician, recently turned scriptwriter for a scene in this entertaining tale. There is one riveting scene where Boman Irani aka Bhau is seemingly attacked by Bhoothnath (who of course is invisible and can’t be seen) during a press conference!

Director Nitesh Tiwari didn’t have a script for this particular scene and he conveyed the same to Boman, describing the scene and the situation. He gave Boman the freehand to enact the scene and render dialogues as per his wish! Boman then requested the director to give him half an hour, post which he came on the set and gave such a physically phenomenal performance, that the entire team was speechless!!

He slapped himself, kicked, shouted, yelled and created such an act that it actually felt to the crew like an invisible personality was torturing the actor!

Said a source from the set, "It is very difficult to convincingly slap oneself and be physically violent to one own self and also maintain dialogues with stable tenor and strong voice delivery. Boman not only gathered the physical energy to hit himself but also gave the dialogues perfectly!"

Well all we can say is that we always Boman Irani was a class act!

Produced by T-Series and BR Films and releasing on 11th April, ‘Bhoothnath Returns’ is an entertaining tale of good against evil, weak against powerful, past against future directed by Nitesh Tiwari and it sees the return of Big B aka ‘Bhoothnath’ who with the powerfully talented child actor Parth aka Akhrot strive to see a change in the country!
