It's not every day that Saif Ali Khan says yes to a new director. And Homi Adajania knows he's lucky.
But he also knows he has an unusual script, the kind that would make actors want to do the film. It's how the 34-year-old also managed to convince Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia and Boman Irani. Yes, Being Cyrus has a stellar cast, and an interesting story.
It had to be different. After all, Homi's not your regular Bollywood director. He has had no training in the field, doesn't see the need to network in film circles, and is a professional scuba diver!
He chats with Ronjita Kulkarni about his new film, due for release on March 24.
