"I am very proud to be a
part of '3 Idiots' and happy that the character has worked in
a big way. The wonderful thing is I used to be called Mamu (from
'Munnabhai M.B.B.S') earlier, then Lucky Singh happened for a
while and now I am called Virus," said Boman, who is equally
excited about "Well Done Abba".
Inspired by two short stories - "Narsaiyyan Ki Bavdi"
by Jeelani Bano and "Phulwa Ka Pul" by Sanjeev, "Well
Done Abba" is a light-hearted political satire that narrates
the story of Armaan Ali (Boman), a driver working in Mumbai.
He takes a month's leave to find a suitable match for his teenage
daughter, who lives in a small neighbourhood close to Hyderabad.
But he returns to work only after three months and his employer
wants to sack him.
Talking about the film, Boman said: "Buying a house in
this country and getting a daughter married are among the greatest
responsibilities for anyone...It's a completely Indian film
about Indian people and an honest effort which will charm and
"It sounds very sad but it's a satire...It's very beautifully
told and the comic situations are lovely, sweet and very charming.
It's like a fable. It's very funny and touching. It's almost
like a book with wonderful illustrations," he added.
Produced by Big Pictures, the film also stars Minissha Lamba,
with Ila Arun, Sonali Kulkarni, Rajit Kapur and Yashpal Sharma
also in pivotal roles.
Prior to its release, "Well Done Abba" has been to
film festivals in Montreal, London and Dubai.
Besides "Well Done Abba", Boman will be seen in "Hum
Tum Aur Ghost", "Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai", "Mirch",
"Housefull", "Dostana 2" and "Don 2".
He has also lent his voice to Nikhil Advani's animation movie
"Ab Dilli Door Nahin".
