Acting maestro Boman Irani, who will be seen essaying a role of a politician in the upcoming film BHOOTHNATH RETURNS opposite Amitabh Bachchan, recently turned scriptwriter for a scene in the movie, we hear.
The duo will be sharing screen space after eight years in the entertaining tale, and 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, reportedly asked the director to give him half an hour, post which he came on the set and gave a physically phenomenal performance, making the entire team speechless.
He slapped and kicked himself, shouted, yelled and created such an act that it actually appeared to the crew that an invisible personality was torturing the actor.
Says a source from the set, ''It is very difficult to convincingly slap oneself and be physically violent to 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 knew that Boman Irani was a class actor!
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 Amitabh Bachchan aka 'Bhoothnath', who with the powerfully talented child actor Parth Bhalerao aka Akhrot strive to see a change in the country.
