When we are young and stupid, then dreams are our reality. However, once we grow up, our dreams are replaced with facts, cans and cans of the society, and we are told that dreams end with age. Therefore, according to the public, once you cross the 30 or 40s, you can not follow your passion, but Bollywood actor, Boman Irani made his dreams come true at the age of 35 .
Before we take you forward in the story, let’s take a glance, on the journey from the waiter to the superb Bollywood. Bowman showed the world that you are never old enough to make another plan or to see a new dream. He left his mark with his excellent comic timing and unique acting style. And we can still not go ahead with his excellent performance in Munnabhai MBBS, Khosla Ka Ghosal, 3 Idiots and many more films.
Recently, in an interview with Humans of Bombay, Bowman fired his own acting leg pies. The actor talked about his childhood and told how his mother became the breadwinner of the family because he had lost his father before birth. Bowman shared, “Before I was born, I lost my father, he used to run a wafer shop and after that, my mother handled it. My sister had a school, so my mother was with the priest’s wife. He had to leave the fire temple, while he ran a shop. ”
He shared how he saw his mother fighting alone in the sad days, but became the source of inspiration for them, “I saw them fighting alone for years, soon I started school, but I had a speech and I had the inability to learn. I remember that I started, singing my speech better, and once during a demonstration, mother has listened to me. In. It was very loud! I hear it, it got my confidence back!
Bowman then talked about working as a waiter, and said, “I have studied science after school, but I still will be participating in theater and other arts. In order to get to the top, you have to start from the bottom, so I met him. So he sent me to work in the service of the room only after another one and a half years. I became a waiter in that restaurant! ”
And then Destiny played his game and had to quit his job as a waiter to support his mother, “Soon after, my mother got along with an accident, so I left my job and sat at the shop. And before that I knew this, 14. years passed – during that time I met my wife, got married and even had children. But something was wrong, so my wife encouraged me to find out. I liked photography and my father was also a photographer, so I tried and after some struggle, I started doing good. At that time, a friend got me to audition for an advertisement. And I got selected! That’s why I decided to pursue it and in some years, I had made more than 180 advertisements and some popular dramas. There was a low budget and a Handycam was going to be shot, but it was a golden opportunity for me! ”
Bowman revealed how he met Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who gave him the Golden Ticket of Bollywood, “My life changed completely when Vidhu Vinod Chopra saw a clip from the movie. He contacted me and told me to meet. When we met, he said.I was given a check of 2 lakh to join his next film.

Career was unexpected – but I caught the chance and did not let it go. It was a wonderful journey, But all through good, bad and ugly, I learned to keep my hopes and, more than anything, know that it has never been late in the beginning! ”

Earlier, in an interview, he talked about his visit, and said, “If there is passion in your heart and there is a fire in your stomach, then there is no one who can stop you from moving forward.

People used to call me Bomman, so I decided to do a course, to be a waiter and joined the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel as a waiter. I worked there for two years and put my heart into it.
