Boman Irani to endorse NGO for the disabled
New Delhi: Versatile actor Boman Irani, who has been named the brand ambassador of NGO Ahead which works for the welfare of physically challenged people, will raise funds through a theatre performance Sunday.
The play called "The Melody of Love" will be held at Manik Sabhagriha, Bandra in Mumbai, said a press statement.
It will feature actors like Tom Alter, Lillette Dubey, popular radio jockey Mantra and actor-director Divya Arora, who is wheelchair-bound due to cerebral palsy since birth and is directing the play.
On being asked about her choice of Boman as the brand ambassador, Arora said: "Boman is very human. He is not only multi-talented but also multi-faceted. Most importantly he is self-made. Boman Irani also has the power to influence change. He is a very approachable person with a warm heart."
Boman, who has enthralled the audience with his performance in films like "Munnabhai MBBS" and "3 Idiots", says he completely supports the idea of theatre for a cause.
"Today the audience has become very progressive, they enjoy theatre equally as compared to cinema. In fact, theatre is not only entertaining but also educative. People feel that my voice is inspiring and reaches the audience. That gives me the boost to come forward for such good deeds," said the actor, who has prior experience in theatre as well.
