Yes, I have lost weight. I thought it’s just nice to be a lit­tle fit­ter; af­ter I be­came a grand­fa­ther,” says ac­tor Bo­man Irani (left). He is quick to add, “When you be­come a grand­fa­ther, they [peo­ple] sud­denly age you by 10 years for no rea­son. I thought I’ll de-age my­self a lit­tle bit!” The fit avatar of this mul­ti­fac­eted ac­tor made one won­der if he’s prep­ping up for an up­com­ing role. “I needed to get a lit­tle fit­ter... I was en­joy­ing life too much. I was hav­ing good food and en­joy­ing good travel. When you are trav­el­ling, you think you might as well eat. Too much of good things is good for noth­ing. In fact, too much of di­et­ing is also not a good thing. You need to bal­ance. I’m happy bal­anc­ing,” he says. About his grand­child, he adds, “My grand­child is a big drame­baaz. See, you have to un­der­stand, he’s my grand­son... Mera toh kuch toh utrega na! (he’ill ul­ti­mately be a shadow of me) And I’m not talk­ing about act­ing but just do­ing kalakari at home. I’m good at it. When I want at­ten­tion, I know how to get it. And that’s ac­tu­ally the most im­por­tant drame­baazi I do in my life. He seeks a lot of at­ten­tion and even man­ages to get it.” His com­ments did have a sense of play­ful jeal­ously yet he didn’t mind adding, “I have be­come a spot boy to my grand­son!”
