In an earlier interview with Bombay Times, too, Boman had opened up on his desire to make a film. He had said, “I realised I needed a good script . It’s very hard to find one. I wrote something which I thought was a nice story. It also travelled to a few tables but didn’t make the cut. I realised that I need to become a student again. It’s foolish to think that if you can write, you are a writer. It’s like saying that if you can fill petrol in a car, you’re an engineer. To be a writer, you have to know the craft. I am someone who studied acting by reading books for years. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go to an institute but I attended workshops. Creativity goes hand-in-hand with science; in fact it comes after science. It’s taken me some time to understand the craft behind writing films. I was in no hurry and I even slowed down on my films. I travelled to the US, spent time with my mentor and did workshops there. In the next decade, I agree that I can do 60 or 100 films more...So what? What after that? But learning something new and applying it can keep the excitement up. At my age, I am happy to make my debut once again, this time as a filmmaker, who is also a grand daddy.”
