On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, actor Boman Irani took a stroll down memory lane and recalled essaying the role of Mahatma Gandhi in Feroze Khan’s ‘Mahatma v/s Gandhi’.
Taking to Instagram, Boman revealed that he lost 30 kgs for the role.
” It’s Gandhi Jayanti. However, we should be thinking of him and his principles every single day. I had the good fortune to play him in Feroze Khan’s ‘Mahatma vs Gandhi’. Lost 30 Kgs to essay the part but gained a lifetime of learning,” he wrote.

Boman also shared pictures from the play.
In the coming months, Boman will be seen sharing screen space with superstar Shah Rukh Khan in Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Dunki’.
Sharing his experience working with SRK, Boman earlier said, “I won’t be afraid to say it’s the greatest experience working with Shah Rukh. He’s the finest co-actor and star to work with. It doesn’t feel like he’s this big big star, he’s like a brother. He treats everybody so well, it’s such a beautiful light atmosphere and every time I work with Shah Rukh, I feel like a happier and younger person.”
The duo shares a great bond for years now. This is not the first time Boman and SRK have worked together. They have previously appeared together in films such as ‘Main Hoon Na’, ‘Don’, and ‘Happy New Year’. Their film ‘Dunki’ will hit the theatres on December 22.
