Why Boman Irani ?

From working as a waiter & room service staff to running his ancestral bakery & finally making his mark as a photographer, Boman came a long way before becoming the established actor he is today.

Boman’s talks are an anecdotal journey about his struggle before he became successful in the industry. His core message for the audience is- ‘Pursue your dreams but also be realistic about your core competence. You need to remember that it takes a lifetime of hard work to become an overnight success!’
