Stop creating a fuss, Boman Irani tells the press

Boman Irani has lent his voice to an animated character called Bagga - which happens to be a bear - in Nikhil Advani's Delhi Safari. And he recently said at a press conference that everyone should stop creating a fuss about the clash between Delhi Safari and Student Of The Year, directed by Karan Johar.
"It doesn't matter if Delhi Safari releases with SOTY or with any other big banner film. I'll support this film for as long as I live. The purpose of the film is to set a benchmark, that's it," he said. Delhi Safari is about a group of animals who get together to convey to the ministers that they are highly agitated about the destruction of their homes. And since the film gives a very strong environmental message, Irani is making sure he promotes the film in the best way possible.
But why did he exactly do the film? "I am a lazy person. I'd rather sit at home rather than do something for the love of animals or for the love of children. You show me a check and I get all hard working. Jokes aside, I did this film for the love of the planet," he explained.
An animated flick and a larger-than-life Karan Johar drama, looks like the theatres will be thronging with children, teenagers and hardcore movie buffs at the same time.
