Boman Irani will play Ratan Tata in the PM Modi biopic starring Vivek Oberoi.
Producer Sandip Singh, who welcomed Irani among his casts also shared his excitement "Boman and I have worked together earlier in Shireen Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi. In spite of being so busy with his own directorial venture and prior commitments, as soon as we reached out to him, he agreed. He was just a phone call away. He is an actor who motivates people and rehearses with his co-actors at least 50 times. I am extremely happy and proud that he is part of this film, nobody else could have done a better job. I wish to work with him in every film."
Boman Irani added, “I have always received comments on social media that I resemble Ratan Tata. I always thought the day the character comes along I will be more than happy to play it. So when Omung, Sandip, and Vivek called me for the role and I immediately agreed to do it. The team is quite wonderful and Omung is doing a great job, we have already shot my part and it went very well. I must say that Vivek has worked really hard to get where he has gotten with the character. It was a pleasure to see Vivek maturing into an artist who takes on such a difficult role, he has done it with great maturity and homework."
