I'm not comfortable with romantic scenes: Boman Irani
However, he says his discomfort worked in his favour in the movie.
"I am not really comfortable with romantic scenes. But it worked for the character. It is good that I am uncomfortable because the character is also uncomfortable (in the film)," Boman said.
"Had the character been comfortable, then maybe I would have (had to) practice more with Farah," he added.
'Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi' is a love story of a man and woman over 40. Choreographer-turned-director Farah is making her acting debut with the movie, but she agreed only after a kissing scene involving her and Boman was taken out of the script.
Boman says love has been approached in a clumsy manner in the film.
"It is easier to fall in love with Farah than with some young people. Falling in love is clumsy. The approach of love (in the film) is even more immature than a teenager because they don't know how people approach (each other) at the age of 45," he said.
"Though we are mature but even catching or holding the hand is done in a very clumsy manner. If they do it maturely, then it might get boring," he added.
Boman says he knew the audience would be surprised to see him in a mature love story, but he stresses that he was also aware that it would be an honest attempt.
"When we started reading the film, at least we thought it will be a sincere, honest and fresh film. We don't know about the market, but the intention should be of making a good movie," he added.
Directed by Bela Sehgal, 'Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi' will release Aug 24.
