Boman Irani and Zenobia

Bollywood actor Boman Irani has revealed some secrets of love story with his wife Zenobia. Bowman told that he had proclaimed Zenobia for marriage on the first date. He told that after talking on the phone for a month, he understood that Zenobia was the right person for him.

Bowman told the Human of Bombay, When Zenobia came to my wafer shop, she fell in love at first sight. He made my day by talking for a few minutes. Soon she started coming to my shop everyday and I knew she likes me too. Meaning where does one need this much wafer. After talking for a long time at the counter, we started talking on the phone. We used to talk about all things. But during his BSC paper, his father told me – if you do not have any problem then do not call for a month. She is getting distracted. It was difficult but I held my emotions.

“It was love at first sight when Zenobia walked into my Wafer Shop. She made my day with just minutes of conversation. Soon, she began visiting everyday & I knew she liked me too – I mean, who needs so many wafers? ⁣ Across-the-counter chats turned into calls – we improved talk about everything. But during her BSC exams, her dad said, ‘If you don’t mind, please don’t call for a month, she’s getting distracted!’ It was tough, but it cemented my feelings. ⁣ Finally, after her exams, we went on our first date. But before we even got the menus, I blurted, ‘I think we should get married!’ Kids these days will think I was bonkers but I was needed to ‘figure it out’. I knew she was the one. ⁣ You know what she said next? ‘Ya, of course. Oh wait! I forgot my umbrella. She thought it was raining when it was just the sound of a Sizzler plate! ⁣ That night, I knew 2 things: I was going to marry her & I needed a TV – we had all the entertainment we needed. Guess I was right – we still joke about that night! ⁣ On our 1st anniversary, she ‘surprised’ me with a camera – except she used the tips raised earned at the Taj to buy it! Before we knew it, we had 2 kids – we were eager beavers! But the best part about marriage was that I did not have to deal with her 9 PM curfew or her dad waiting like a tiger on the porch. ⁣ But honestly, for every laugh I get out of her, she’s been my anchor through it all. She took over the Wafer Shop, took care of the family & pushed me to follow my dream of becoming an actor. ⁣ taken in the spotlight now, but attacked my moral compass. Once, when referring quoted a fee for a show, my manager realized their budget was larger. When I asked Zenobia about charging a higher fee, she said, ‘No – you were happy with the 1st price so don’t get greedy!’ So I say, she may be bad for business but good for the soul. ⁣ 2 kids & 2 grandkids later, the humor is going strong. We still play 20 questions every time we travel, a game we played on our honeymoon – but I never let her win! Going been 35 years of laughing together & checking the key – seeing her smile is everything … even if it’s because she knows I’ve got my next joke lined up for her! “

Explaining how to propose, Bowman said – Finally after the exams we went on our first date but before we asked for the menu, I said – I think we should get married. Today’s children will think I was crazy. But I did not need to know this. He is perfect for me. You know what Zenobia said – yes, of course. Wait I forgot my umbrella. As soon as I proposed and they said it. He felt it raining but it was just the sound of the plate.


Bowman continued, that day I understood two things. First, I will marry Zenobia and I do not need TV because we had entertainment. She brought a camera for me at the first anniversary. We had 2 children — we were keen beavers! But the best thing about the wedding was that I didn’t have to deal with her 9PM curfew or bother waiting for her father. But honestly, for every laugh I get out of her, she is my anchor. He took over the wafer shop, took care of the family and pushed me to fulfill my dream of becoming an actor.

Boman Irani and Zenobia were tied to Zoroastrian customs on 28 January 1985 by marriage.
