New Delhi, Feb 21: Critically-acclaimed actor Boman Irani is all set to play the role of business tycoon Ratan Tata in Omung Kumar’s upcoming film ‘PM Narendra Modi’.

Producer Sandip Singh said," Boman and I have worked together earlier in ‘Shireen Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’.
In spite of being so busy with his own directorial venture and prior commitments, as soon as we reached out to him, he agreed. He was just a phone call away.”

Boman Irani said ,"I have always received comments on social media that I resemble Ratan Tata. I always thought the day the character comes along I will be more than happy to play it. So, when Omung, Sandip and Vivek called me for the role, I immediately agreed to do it.'
'The team is quite wonderful and Omung is doing a great job, we have already shot my part and it went very well. I must say that Vivek has worked really hard to get where he has gotten with the character.It was pleasure to see Vivek maturing into an artist who takes on such a difficult role, he has done it with great maturity and home work,' Boman said.
