Pinkvilla was the first to report that Amitabh Bachchan is collaborating with Sooraj Barjatya on a slice of life tale of friendship, which will go on floors in the month of September. Soon after, we reported that the film will also feature Boman Irani and Anupam Kher in lead, portraying the character of Amitabh Bachchan’s friends. Post that, it was revealed that the much awaited film has been titled Oonchai. While an official announcement on the same is still awaited, in an exclusive interaction with Pinkvilla, Boman Irani confirmed the development.

When asked about his interactions with Sooraj Barjatya, Boman laughed, “The interactions have been virtual. I was about to go and meet him on one of these days, but once again things got shut.” The actor then opened up about his excitement on this collaboration. “We come from the same school and he is actually one of the most polite and respectful human being. He has incredible value and respect for his actors. It will be great fun,” he smiled.
