On July 3, Boman Irani’s son Danesh and daughter-in-law Reah became proud parents to baby boy Ziaan. The Bollywood actor took to Twitter to announce the news, and soon his timeline was flooded with congratulatory messages from his friends and family members.
“There’s a lot of excitement in the family. We have people visiting us and everyone’s together. It’s such a happy time,” says Boman.
The newly-turned grandfather says he makes sure he spends enough time with Ziaan no matter how busy he is. “We can always say we are busy, but I don’t want to. I don’t want to miss out on the days when he is growing up,” says the 56-year-old. The actor also adds that he will not be over-strict with his grandson. “As a grandfather, I might bring in the old-world view of life at some point. But I’m not into any kind of disciplining. I find that irritating,” he says.
Talking about his other son, Kayoze, Boman, who will share screen space with him in the upcoming film The Legend Of Michael Mishra, says, “Kayoze is pretty relentless at reaching where he wants to be. I find that fantastic. But he should not turn it into an obsessive quality, as that is dangerous.” Ask him if he often gives acting tips to his son, and the actor says, “I hate telling Kayoze what to do, because he has his own thoughts. I genuinely feel actors should find their own processes, especially when they are in the thick of it.”
