Cut To Flashback!

It seems like it was only yesterday…. Boman Irani on the sets of the shoot for a quirky new television commercial for P Mark Mustard Oil… in his element as always… with an awesome new look – a tabla maestro, replete with a designer kurta and an intriguing wig.

It was well past midnight when the shoot started and as the citizens of the “City That Never Sleeps” enjoyed their slumber, the set was alive and bustling with activity. This was a film with a supporting cast of close to 200 people (including extras) and an experienced production team led by Ravi Chandran, DOP. In the Director’s chair was Kayoze Irani – Boman’s son.

Ad films are supposed to be hush-hush under-wraps affairs… but it was Boman who first let the cat out of the bag with this tweet:

Later, after the film was launched, he tweeted once again:

Other celebrities who loved the ad film and tweeted about it were Alia Bhat and Huma Qureshi, along with Ravi Chandran, the film’s DOP.

Boman also shared the film with all his fans on his personal Facebook page; it garnered more that 100,000 views!

Well, coming back to the story that we started this post with, the shoot went on till dawn… but surprisingly, Boman showed no signs of fatigue. In fact, after the shoot he spent another hour with the P Mark Mustard Oil Team in his vanity van, delivering a series of in-camera messages. We have been sharing these here, on this blog – and you can see how fresh Boman looks. What an amazing artiste! And what an amazing experience!
