Mumbai: Bollywood actor Boman Irani recently visited several lingerie stores in south Mumbai to prepare for his role as an underwear salesman, says a media report.

To learn more about his role as a lingerie salesman in Bela Sehgal's upcoming film. Boman went knocking on the doors of several underwear stores in south Mumbai to learn the tricks of the trade.

During these visits, Boman observed how people behind the counter behave and treat their customers.

He picked up some tips as well.“ There is no special manner to conduct oneself when you're selling undergarments. Their behaviour was very matter-of-factly and they treat the undergarments like any other commodity.

"Contrary to what the misconception is, the hush-hush factor isn't there at all!

"But yes, I also noticed the way in which they were folding the items and putting them back into boxes and many such aspects of the service,”  says the 52-year-old actor.

Before becoming an actor, Boman used to sell wafers on Grant Road. "Thanks to those days, I've got a great deal of experience in retailing. So I know how the business and attitude works… the routine of greeting customers, introducing them to your products and ultimately selling!”
