Mumbai: Boman Irani, who turned to acting after being a professional photographer, is now keen to try his hand at direction.

"I would like to make a movie, I'd like to direct the movie. I don't know what time (when), but all I know is I would like to make a film about human spirit," the 52-year-old said here.

"I would like to make film about people, people interest me a lot. I like human beings, I don't like too much violence, unfortunately," he added. Talking about his time as a photographer, Boman says after entering films he met a lot of people who taught him the nuances of working behind the camera.

"People you meet, great people like Ram Madhvani, Raju (Rajkumar) Hirani, (Vidhu) Vinod Chopra... sometimes they take your hand and take you wherever you got to go, you got to do it with great grace and spirit that these people are probably more knowledgeable than you are.

"So this journey of mine has been actually magical it has been very special, but standing behind the camera has actually taught me a lot about standing in front of the camera," Boman said.

Boman made his Bollywod debut with Everybody Says I'm Fine! in 2001 and later did memorable roles in "Munnabhai M.B.B.S.", "Main Hoon Na", "Being Cyrus", "Lage Raho Munnabhai", "Khosla Ka Ghosla" and "3 Idiots".

His latest film Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi  hit screens Friday.

Jayeshbhai Jordaar’s good intentions are lost to a poor comprehension of gender politics, lack of focus, a saviour complex and above all, ineffective storytelling.

Ranveer Singh makes Jayeshbhai Jordaar much more than a mere token feminist

The impact of Ranveer Singh's performance in Jayeshbhai Jordaar is lamentably lessened by the curse of the second half. There are embarrassing halts in the plot where I could almost see the writer-director stopping to decide which road to take.
