Bomani Irani is all set to announce his debut as producer and is planning to host a writer’s workshop featuring Oscar-winning screenwriter Alexander Dinelaris to celebrate the occasion.
Irani has written the script for this project and will also direct the film himself. “Turning producer was not on my mind but once I finished the script, I wanted to do the best I could for it so decided to produce and direct it myself.”, he told Mirror.
The launch of Irani’s production house will take place today (24th January 2019). “Amitabh Bachchan will flag off the function, post which Alex will conduct the workshop focusing on the importance of screenwriting in the business today. He will analyse scenes from ‘Birdman’(2014). I hope it will be a happy day for the writers.” he said. Apart from being on the writing team for ‘Birdman’, Dinelaris has also co-produced ‘The Revenant’ (2015).
