Hollywood for Boman Irani only with substantial role

New Delhi: Actor Boman Irani is open to the idea of going to Hollywood to explore a “different world of acting” -- albeit only when a “substantial” opportunity comes knocking at his door.

A wave of Indian talent with names like Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Anupam Kher and Deepika Padukone, has hit foreign shores. While Boman, 56, is not averse to the idea of working in the west, he says he won't jump onto the bandwagon with a run-of-the-mill role. 

“If something substantial comes my way, I will (explore Hollywood). An actor will always like to explore different mediums, different styles of acting and different world of acting,” Boman told IANS over phone from Mumbai. 

“If something comes, sure enough. If not, then I am content in whatever I do," he added.

The actor, who is the brand ambassador for Ambi Pur India and is busy urging people to take a 'Smelfie Challenge' to rid their homes of odour, is known for films like “Happy New Year”, “Housefull 3”, “Student of the Year” and “3 Idiots”. 

As far as Bollywood is concerned, Boman says he is going through a few projects, but refrains from spilling any information about them. 

He said: “There are three projects but I have not signed for it. So, it will be stupid of me to mention it ... you will know about them soon.”
