Boman Irani clocks in 150 online screenwriting sessions of 'Spiral Bound'

Boman Irani clocks in 150 online screenwriting sessions of 'Spiral Bound'

New Delhi, Sep 15 (UNI) It has been Boman Irani's endeavour to break down the craft of cinema for brilliant minds of all ages.
The multifaceted actor who is known for his path-breaking performances in '3 Idiots' and 'Lage Raho Munnabhai', has answered his call as a storyteller by devising 'Spiral Bound', a series of screenwriting workshops for eager learners.
This unique initiative by the actor has clocked in 150 online screenwriting sessions during the lockdown.
Through these workshops, Irani offers a learning opportunity to budding writers, ametuer and professional from different walks of life to unite and learn the nuances of screenwriting. What started for him as a step towards being a student of cinema, has resulted in an incredible journey of mentoring hundreds of students.
Happy to have arrived at the milestone of hitting 150 sessions, Boman took to his social media to express gratitude towards artists and filmmakers, who showed their support to Spiral Bound.
Boman wrote in a Facebook post, "150 sessions on screenwriting in just about 165 days right through this lockdown. Writers, directors, actors, designers, beginners, all......with heart. All......with the intention to learn and grow. Not allowing the chains of these lockdowns to shackle and get the better of us. If at all we were shackled, it was with each other. Bound by the spiraling shackles of learning, love and friendship. Proud of each and every one of you! Grateful too. Thank you @anoshirani_writer for your magnificent support. You are my partner in crime! Thank you #alexdinelaris, #RajuHirani, @madhvaniram. @shakunbatra . @divyangt @mikhilmusale88 & @doctordramatherapy for your contributions. Thank you All! You ALL know who I’m talking about!!!"
"Spiral Bound began with the idea of jamming on stories and refining them. We have over 100 people attending the sessions every day and now clocking in 150 sessions leads me to think that what we're offering these minds is really working for them," the veteran actor said.
The first workshop of Spiral Bound was conducted by Alexander Dinelaris - Oscar-winning film Birdman's screenwriter and dear friend to Boman post the launch of his production house Irani Movietone.
On the work front, the actor looks forward to the release of '83 and 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar'.
