"That man is dead and gone. His name was Nazar. He was related to the famous singer Zohrabai Ambalewaali. Obviously, he had contacts in the film industry. My mother was hell-bent on making me a star," Daisy Irani added.
Daisy Irani decided to talk about her childhood, which she says "resembled a never-ending black comedy," to alert the parents of child artistes of today to be vigilant for their kids' safety. "Child actors have it tough. In a majority of cases they have been taken advantage of. Maybe a few have had it easy, but most don't, really," she said.
Daisy Irani is the sister of Honey Irani (mother of Farhan and Zoya Akhtar) and Meneka (Farah and Sajid Khan's mother). When her siblings entered the film industry she became "over-protective" for them.
In the last few years, Daisy Irani has starred in films such as Happy New Year, Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi and Housefull.
