I lost my dad before he was born. He ran a wafer shop and after him my mom took over. My sisters had school, so my mother had to leave me in the temple of fire with the priest's wife, while she ran the store. I saw her fighting alone, for years. Soon I started school, but I had speech and learning problems. I remember that I had started singing to improve my speech. And once in a performance, Mom recorded the applause I received. It was so strong! I kept listening to him, I regained my confidence! I studied science after school, but I would still participate in theater and other arts. After college, I had to start contributing to the family. So I met with the manager of a Taj hotel and asked to work in the rooftop restaurant. He said: To get to the top, you must start from the bottom. So he sent me to work in room service. Only after a year and a half did I become a waiter in that restaurant! Soon after, my mother had an accident, so I left my job and sat in the store. And before I knew it, it was 14 years, during that time I met my wife, I got married and I even had children. But throughout, something was wrong. So my wife encouraged me to explore. I loved photography and my dad was also a photographer. So I tried that and after a bit of fighting, I started doing it right. At that time, a friend auditioned me for an announcement. I did it and they selected me! So I decided to dedicate myself to it and in some years I made more than 180 ads and even some popular works. They also offered me a short film. I had a low budget and it was going to be filmed on a portable camera, but for me it was a golden opportunity. My life changed completely, when Vidhu Vinod Chopra saw a clip of the movie. He contacted and asked to meet with me. When we met, he gave me a check for 2 lakhs to be in his next movie. He did not even have a movie yet, but he did not want him to be famous and not give him dates. That's when Munnabhai MBBS happened and at 35, my dream career began. It was unexpected, but I took the opportunity and did not let it go. It has been an incredible journey, one that made me go through some turbulence. But through all the good, the bad and the ugly, I learned to keep my hopes and more than anything, I know it's never too late to start over!
Meanwhile, on the work front, Boman will be seen in Rajkummar Rao & Mouni roy starrer 'Made In China'. Helmed by Mikhil Musale & backed by Dinesh Vijan , the movie will hit theaters on August 30.
