Boman Irani completes over 50 online screenwriting sessions amid lockdown

Mumbai: Actor Boman Irani has completed more than 50 online screenwriting sessions under his workshop which aims to help aspiring writers.

Boman started ”Spiral Bound” during the lockdown, which has been regularly attended by more than 70 screenwriters from across the country.

The 60-year-old actor said he started ‘Spiral Bound’ with two-three screenwriters who wanted to discuss their ideas with him but the online sessions soon became an important part of his life.

“After that, more and more people started joining and now we have over 75 people attending the sessions every day. It is an interactive session where we share our knowledge and understanding of screenwriting. It has been an incredible journey,” Boman said in a statement.

“It all begins with a story. And if you can get that right in terms of screenplay then making a movie or any other content for entertainment becomes easier. I am a student of the craft but while my endeavour is to master it, I also want to help as many brilliant minds to do the same,” he added.

The first workshop of ‘Spiral Bound’ was conducted by screenwriter Alexander Dinelaris, who penned the Academy Award winning film “Birdman”.

Boman will be next seen in filmmaker Kabir Khan’s “”83″, which features Ranveer Singh as Indian cricket legend Kapil Dev.

The film, which chronicles India’s win under Kapil’s captainship, when the team defeated West Indies in the final to clinch their first-ever World Cup trophy in 1983, was supposed to release in April but was pushed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
