Boman Irani admits you make your own luck

Actor Boman Irani is currently busy in shooting for upcoming film in director Rohit Shetty’s film titled as “Dilwale”. The film also stars Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.


He said, “It will always be difficult, it will always be easy (to get a break)… it depends on your preparation of getting there. People say that it’s a lot to do with your luck — I do believe in luck, but I also believe that you make your own luck”.

He added, “Hard work takes care of 80 or maybe 90 percent of the luck factor, 10 percent might be attributed to luck. If a person is hard working, knows exactly what it takes to be an actor, I think he or she will make it at some point in life.”

He further added, “When you say that ‘I’m struggling’, but you are doing nothing about understanding the craft of acting and facing the camera, then no amount of luck is going to help you”.

He said, “It takes a lifetime of hard work to get there, so the struggle had already happened. I had kind of paid my dues doing 14 years of theatre. When I got ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.’, I was so taken up by the story and I met Rajkumar Hirani for the first time and I said, ‘This is a guy I’d like to work with’.”

He added, “So getting a film was not as difficult as the years I’d spent before it as a photographer or as a theatre actor and before that as a shopkeeper. So it wasn’t much of a struggle, but the struggle of life was very much there for 44 years”.

He continued, “I seem to enjoy every single day on the set. There are some roles that you might get great creative and artistic satisfaction out of, some might get you a great amount of box office success, but frankly, that doesn’t move me much.”

Boman said, “If I’m engaged in the first three lines of the script, something is working for me… you’ve picked my interest. So the moment that happens, I ask for a little more to read. Also, at the end of the day, it’s the person who makes the film. So the person who is making it also has to be of a certain amount of competence.”
