This is a good period for Bollywood: Boman Irani

Bollywood actor Boman Irani, remembered for his roles in films like “Munnabhai M.B.B.S.” and “Khosla Ka Ghosla”, says this is Hindi film industry’s best phase as a lot of experimentation is taking place.

“I think this is a good period in the industry. There is an attempt to make different cinema. However at the same time it is not that commercial cinema is not being made. That is being done too.

“But along with that there is space for different topics as well. Different styles and all kind of films are important otherwise there will be no growth,” said the 46-year-old actor.

Boman will be next seen in Rajkumar Hirani’s “Three Idiots”, Ravi Chopra’s “Banda Yeh Bindas Hai”, Shyam Benegal’s “Well Done Abba” and Farhan Akhtar’s “Karthik Calling Karthik”, among others.
