Paying a tribute to his mother, he lovingly shared her picture on his Instagram account and wrote a heartfelt note, “Mother Irani passed away peacefully in her sleep early this morning. Jer was 94. She played the role of both mother and father to me since she was 32. What a spirit she was. Filled with funny stories that only she could tell. The longest arm that always dug deep into her pockets, even when there wasn’t much there. When she sent me to the movies, she made sure all the compound kids came with me. ‘Don’t forget the popcorn’ she would say. She loved her food and her songs and she could fact-check Wikipedia and IMDb in a flash. Sharp, sharp, sharp, till the very end. She always said ‘“You are not an actor for people to praise you. You are an actor only so you can make people smile.”
“Make people happy,” She said. Last night she asked for Malai Kulfi and some mango. She could have asked for the moon and the stars if she wished. She was, and always will be…….A Star.”
Many social media users and celebrities are paying tribute to Boman’s mother in his post. Boman Irani is known for his roles in movies like ‘3 Idiots.’ Irani had his first commercial success with the 2003 comedy ‘Munna Bhai MBBS.’
