Every man, at some point in his life, wishes he could be James Bond. And with the news that Daniel Craig may well be out as 007, there are a whole bunch of actors from London to New Delhi wondering what they could bring to the role.
Could Boman Irani become the Seventh James Bond?
Irani’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Cocktail (2012), Housefull 2 (2012) and Don 2 (2011). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
The question for Irani now is – what next?

- It would give Boman Irani a chance to play a lover, as well as a fighter.
