At an age when most Bollywood actors eye for a retirement from the industry, Boman Irani made an entry in it, and made a mark for himself with his versatility. He started his life as a waiter, went on to become a photographer, did theatre and finally made his debut in Bollywood at the age of 44 with Rajkumar Hirani‘s Hit film Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. From then most of the roles that he played have been loved immensely by the audiences. Today we will share with you few characters which no one other than Mr. Irani could have pulled off better.Dr. Asthana from Munnabhai M.B.B.S.:
This Rajkumar Hirani directorial was undoubtedly Boman Irani’s shot to fame. Everything about this movie was memorable, but Boman surely stole the show. From his anger management theory to his rude behaviour towards Sanjay Dutt‘s character; Boman with this film became everyone’s favourite. For the same film he was also nominated for Filmfare in the Best Comedian Award category.Lucky Singh from Lage Raho Munnabhai:
A Parsi actor, playing a typical Sardar Lucky Singh who carried off the accent, expressions, personality and not to mention the red and yellow turbans look that he carried away with perfection. We are sure a real Sardar couldn’t have played the role as expertly as Boman Irani did. From a doting father, loud showoff man, who is also a conman, the role was a perfect amalgamation of all the above mentioned.Vardaan and DCP DeSilva from Don:
Boman Irani played two characters in the new Don movie as the uncanny DCP DeSilva, whom nobody suspected of deceit and as Vardaan, the villain, who was sophisticated, mean and so classy that we all ended up liking this baddy in the film.Virus from 3 Idiots:
Viru Sahastrabuddhe aka Virus, the character played by Boman Irani in 3 Idiots, this character made the students relate to the teachers they didn’t get along well in college. No matter how many times you will watch this film, Boman will never fail to impress you every single time. He experimented with his looks too for this character and his dialogues became a hit which is why he even won the Fimfare award for the best supporting actor that year.Armaan Ali from Well Done Abba:
Another versatile role of Boman Irani was as a modest man looking to find a suitable groom for his daughter and landing up in the mess of the system. He was a man who was seen fighting the system and kept us entertained as he found laughter in the hindrances. An entertaining, but underrated movie which is a must watch if you are a sucker for good performances in movies.Khurrana From Khosla Ka Ghosla
Boman in this film played a rich Delhi businessman who was seen making a lot of planning and plotting. He played this part with sheer perfection and brilliance.A person who drinks, who plays games with commoners, which is such a common idea that we associate with Delhites. Ironically, we loved the mean character played by Boman in this film along with lot of comedy that he delivered.Dostana- as Murli, or ‘M’
Well we have saved the best for the last! This character of ‘M’ is actually the crown in Boman’s career till date. He played Priyanka Chopra’s gay boss in the film, and what a fantabulous acting he did in the film which left all of us with a jaw dropping moment. He probably played a gay role better than the two main protagonists of the film. Who can forget his dancing steps which were hilarious .
