Didn’t back out of Pakistani film, didn’t have time for it: Boman Irani

Mumbai, June 19 (IANS) Actor Boman Irani has slammed reports that he backed out of a Pakistani film, out of support for “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” director Kabir Khan who was heckled at the Karachi airportin Pakistan earlier this year.

Present at an event for the Blender’s Pride Reserve Collection, Boman was asked to comment on the report.

He said: “It is absolutely false. You all (the media) came up with this story that I backed out. I never backed out. I didn’t have the time at that time, and I just didn’t do the film.”

Kabir Khan was reportedly heckled at the Karachi airport in late April this year for making anti-Pakistani films. A month later, there were reports that Boman backed out of a Pakistani film, as a show of solidarity and support for Khan.

When asked about incident involving Khan, Boman expressed surprise and said: “I came to know about it later on.”

The Pakistani film was to be directed by Azaan Sami Khan, who was co-producing the project with actress Zeba Bakhtiar. Even Azaan had stated that Boman couldn’t do the film due to date issues.

Boman was recently seen in the comedy “Housefull 3”.
