Apart from being one of the industry’s most talented actors, Boman Irani is also an exceptional mimic and would imitate co-stars Arshad Warsi and Mohan Kapur on the sets of his forthcoming film Fox Star Studios’ Jolly LLB in between shots, much to everyone’s delight.
Says a source, “Boman is an excellent mimic and would have everyone on the sets entertained with gags on cameraman Anshuman Mahley and actor Mohan Kapur….but the best moments were when he’d imitate Arshad to perfection”.
Boman Irani said, “Arshad has a very unique way of delivering dialogue and that grabbed my attention. I would imitate him on the spur of the moment. He would be enacting a scene, delivering his dialogue and I would just repeat that, much to the unit’s amusement. Arshad, of course took it sportingly and laughed at it.”
Adding that the antics weren’t aimed to offends, “It was to release tension and nothing else. It does require one to be observant. You see a trait and just build on it. There is no malice in it; it’s done only for entertainment and laughter”.
Jolly LLB, produced by Fox Star Studios and directed by Subhash Kapoor, starring Boman Irani and Arshad Warsi is scheduled to release 15th March 2013.
