Boman Irani’s mother, Jerbanoo Irani, died peacefully in her sleep early Wednesday. The actor took to social media to mourn the passing of his 94-year-old mother.
Sharing a black and white photograph of his mother on Instagram, Boman said she has played the role of both mother and father for him since he was 32. She also talked about how lively a woman she was, her love of food and songs, and how she could control Wikipedia and IMDb in a flash.
“Mother Irani died peacefully in her sleep early this morning. Jer was 94. She has played the role of both mother and father to me since she was 32. What a spirit he was. Full of funny stories that only she could tell. The longest arm always sinking deep into his pockets, even when there wasn’t much. When she sent me to the cinema, she made sure all the guys from the compound came with me. Don’t forget the popcorn, ‘he said. He loved his food and his songs and could check Wikipedia and IMDb in a flash. Sharp, acute, acute, to the end, “he wrote in his heartfelt note.
He further added: “He always said ‘You’re not an actor to people who praise you. You’re an actor just to make people smile. Make people happy, ‘he said. Last night he asked for Malai Kulfi and some mango. He could have asked for the moon and stars if he wanted to. She was, and will always be …… .A Star. “
