Boman Irani, who would be seen romancing ace choreographer-turned-actor Farah Khan in 'Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi', says, he was little uncomfortable getting close to his co-star.
The film is about two 40-year-olds Boman Irani and Farah Khan falling in love with each other.
"Our approach towards romance was all the more immature. As we don't know how one will romance at the age of 45 like do we hold hands, sent messages or flowers or other things. The falling in love is clumsy, immature, catching and holding hands is done in clumsy, bumbling fashion," Boman told.
The chemistry of Boman and Farah looks amazing in the trailer, but Boman revealed that he was little uncomfortable enacting those scenes was not an easy task.
"I am not very comfortable..it was for the character had it not for the character, I would have become comfortable doing this kind of a film. It is good that I am uncomfortable as it is good for the character," Boman said.
"Had the character meant to be comfortable may be I would have practiced more with Farah in private," he said.
The film traces the journey of Farhad Pastakiya (Boman), a 45-year-old Parsi bachelor working as a bra and panty salesman. He meets Shirin Fugawala (Farah), 40-year-old, bubbly, straightforward, Parsi.
All hell breaks loose as Farhad's mother Nargis realises
that her son's dream girl is her sworn enemy.
Talking about his character, Boman says, "I am playing a character of 45-year-old in love, a virgin. This character
that I play has never been out with girls, so he does not know much how to behave with woman and all.
The casting is unusual as Farah is there on board. It was easier to fall in love with Farah than to fall in love with a younger girl."
The 52-year-old is all praises for co-star Farah Khan. "Farah is highly intelligent person. She knows lot of things about cinema, her sense of understanding cinema is very good. There is certain intelligence of her in acting, her
understanding of cinema and that she is inherently funny in
real life, so all these things somehow worked for her," Boman
"She did not come with a baggage of being an ace choreographer-director. She was ready to learn things and she had willingness to learn," he said.
The film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali's sister, Bela
