Short Take

Short Take

Boman Irani, Actor

Who are you?
Someone who spends his life trying to live the dream.

First memory of acting?
The day I started to talk.

First realisation of the 21st century?
As a child, when I saw the 20th Century Fox logo, I said to myself: when it becomes 21st century Fox I’ll become an actor.

The one ritual in your life you can’t do away with?
Morning chai with mum.

The one label a person from the 31st century writing about us would use to describe humanity today?
Pollutant.


'You can't go back to that childlike instinct, you've got to find new ways of working that inspire the same sense of novelty.'
