Boman Irani takes us inside his ‘noisy, full and loving’ house

Published

on

Actor Boman Irani is a family man behind the camera and proudly boasts of being a resident of a noisy house. In an episode of Where the Heart is, a YouTube series produced by a paint brand, the actor gives a tour of his 3-BHK house which exudes warmth and love from each corner.

Boman Irani’s house is has an old school charm.

In the video, Boman shows around his house which is a new construction but has an old school charm. The actor proudly calls it a Parsi house in true sense with walls washed in dull powder blue and a pastel couch and several chairs in printed tapestry placed around for the close-knit family. The house is well lit with natural light and has several paintings and artifacts collected with the joint agreement of Boman and his wife Zenobia. A piano is also placed in the room which is the usual hanging out place of his entire family.

Boman also takes the viewers to his favourite spot in the house, the couch near the window in the DVD room where he loves to read, write, jot down ideas or plan his future. The actor shows his huge collection of Blue Ray DVDs, both of Hollywood and Bollywood films. He calls it his only collection as he is not much of a collector.

Boman reveals that unless both, he and his wife, like an artifact or a piece of furniture, they do not buy it. The actor recalled the time when he bought the house during the shooting of 2003 film Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. and was thinking too hard to stretch his budget to get the place. He was advised by Anil Kapoor to get it anyhow even if he has to sleep on the floor or is unable to buy the furniture.

At the end of the episode, Boman also answers the questions asked by the viewers. Talking about the three traits he has as a Parsi, he says that he is punctual, can’t afford to miss his morning tea and listens to his wife. “I listen to everything that she says,” he adds.

Asked to describe his house in three words, he replies, “noisy, full and loving.”

Boman was seen in Total Dhamaal and PM Narendra Modi film this year. He has three more films lined up for release in 2019 including Housefull 4, Drive, Made In China and Tamil film, Kaappaan.

Urvashi Dholakia calls Nach Baliye 9 partial, Madhurima Tulli denies drama

Published

on

Actor Urvashi Dholakia has been accusing the makers of Nach Baliye 9 of being biased towards other contestants ever since she was voted out. Another contestant, Madhurima Tulli, has now claimed that there is no partiality.

Urvashi and her ex-boyfriend Anuj Sachdeva were eliminated recently and she even took digs at fellow participants Madhurima and her former boyfriend Vishal Aditya Singh for surviving in the show only on the basis of their drama – an element the makers allegedly want to maintain.

“I wouldn’t comment on what she said as it’s her point of view. (But) There is absolutely no partiality as such. Everyone is treated equally. Honestly, it’s a competition and somebody has to win and somebody has to lose. I think you take the judges’ decision respectfully and not dig out these things or make an issue out of it. If we would have lost, I don’t think we would have ever done anything like this and would have respected the decision,” a DNA report quoted Madhurima as saying.

In an interview to Bombay Times, Urvashi claimed she had earned good scores from the judges and had a decent vote bank. “How can a couple be consistently moving up the scoreboard and yet be at the bottom four times in a row? Is this a dance show or a popularity contest? And if we are being judged on popularity, then I am not ready to believe that 35 years of work leads to a low fan base. Where’s the score board to show where each of us stands when it comes to audience’s votes plus judges’ scores? If the show was all about young couples, then why bring us in? If you have brought us on the show, then why the partiality?,” Urvashi told the daily.

“She (Urvashi) is a competitor, she has seen life, she has fought life! I respect her completely. It’s just that I feel she is sad right now and overreacting a bit to a few things. She should take it positively and move on,” Madhurima added.

She also said, “I didn’t know that she had issues with me. We had cordial relations,” further adding on Vishal and Urvashi’s friendship, “I don’t know if they are real friends or for the sake of it. I think she has an issue with me rather than Vishal. I never fought on stage, it’s Vishal who always does, and it’s he who created a controversy. So, I should not be the one to be blamed at all.”

Alia Bhatt reveals Ranbir Kapoor reaction to her Prada song: ‘He told me I have a natural swag’

Published

on

Actor Alia Bhatt has said that her boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor, loved her debut music video, titled Prada. The song, performed by Alia and The Doorbeen, was released online on August 13 and has accumulated close to 20 million views on YouTube.

“Ranbir loved it,” Alia told The Times of India. “He has a very good ear for music and he told me it’s going to be a big hit. He told me that I have natural swag.” Alia said she also ‘played it for Karan Johar’, and ‘he also loved it’. “I played it for Baadshah and he was also very, very supportive and said it’s a good song.”

While The Doorbeen has delivered a massive hit in Lamberghini, the band said that they were nervous before Alia jumped on board, which they saw as validation. “We are still figuring out what path to follow, and once we get a single from the pros in the business, we will go on that path and that validation is very important,” they said.

In recent months, Alia has often accompanied Ranbir to New York, where his father, Rishi Kapoor had been undergoing treatment for cancer. Speaking about Ranbir’s reputation as being ‘difficult’, Alia had told TOI earlier, “He’s not difficult. He’s a gem. But he’s had a troubled past… How does it matter? It’s part of someone’s life. Aur main thodi na kam hoon.”

Alia wrapped up the Ooty schedule of Sadak 2 recently. The film also stars Pooja Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, and Aditya Roy Kapur and is directed by her father, Mahesh Bhatt. She will also be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah, alongside Salman Khan, RRR alongside JR NTR and Ram Charan, Karan Johar’s period drama Takht, alongside Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor, and Brahmastra alongside Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy.
