The actor recently took to his Instagram and shared a few pictures in his character of Mahatma Gandhi which required him to undergo physical transformation.
He wrote in the caption, “It’s Gandhi Jayanti. However, we should be thinking of him and his principles every single day. I had the good fortune to play him in Feroze Khan’s “Mahatma vs Gandhi. Lost 30 Kgs to essay the part but gained a lifetime of learning”.
As the nation pays homage to Mahatma Gandhi, Boman Irani’s portrayal of the Mahatma in ‘Mahatma V/s Gandhi’ serves as a touching reminder of the enduring legacy and teachings of the Father of the Nation.
