Bowman said she was a star
Boman wrote in his post – Mother Irani passed away peacefully in her sleep this morning. Jer was 94 years old. She played both mother and father for me when she was 32 years old.

When he sent me to the movies, he said ‘don’t forget popcorn’.
She loved her food and her songs and could fact check Wikipedia and IMDb in a flash. Till the end his memory was sharp.
She always used to say – you are not such an actor that people should praise you. You are only an actor so you can make people smile. Just make people happy.
Last night he asked for malai kulfi and some mangoes. If she wanted, she could have asked for the moon and the stars. She was, and always will be… a star.
