Boman Irani’s mother Jerbano Irani passed away yesterday due to old age. She passed away in her sleep at the age of 94. Boman Irani took to his Instagram and shared a heart-warming post on his social media, saying that she was both his mother and father. He shares a lovely black-and-white picture of his mother where she looks all smiles and strikes a candid pose. He begins the note saying, “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.”
He further added about her love for food and how sharp she was and was quick to check things on Wikipedia and IMDB. “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.” Now that’s one post that touches your heart. Our condolences are with Boman Irani and his family.
Dia Mirza, Mouni Roy, Aniata Shroff Adajania, dropped their condolences on the post and asked the actor to remain strong.
