Veteran actor Boman Irani’s mother Jerbanoo Irani died on the morning of June 9 at the age of 91. The actor announced her demise on Instagram and shared many of her fond memories with his followers.
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.
He added that when she would send him to the movies, she would make sure that all the other kids would accompany him as well.
Boman wrote that his mother fulfilled the role of both his mother and father, at the age of 32. Boman lost his father six months before he was born. He described his mother as a food lover, who knew how to fact check on Wikipedia and IMDB in a flash.
“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.”
Jerbanoo had been a huge supporter of Boman’s passion for being an actor and would send him to watch movies at the cinema so he could analyze the art of filmmaking.
