Farhan Akhtar recently posted two pictures with mother Honey Irani and sister Zoya Akhtar. First picture was a black and white picture from his childhood days where the siblings posed for the camera with mother Honey Irani as they looked into the camera. Zoya Akhtar could be seen wearing a frock with a hairband and Farhan Akhtar smiled for the camera wearing a T-shirt. Honey Irani could be seen wearing a striped sari as she placed her hands on their children.
The second picture was from recent times as the siblings and mother smile for the camera. They were all dressed in traditional clothes. Farhan Akhtar wore a grey and white kurta with white pants while Zoya Akhtar was dressed in a white sari with golden detailing and maroon banarsi blouse. Honey Irani wore a traditional banarsi sari as she smiled joyously for the camera. Although both the pictures had the same people, the second picture was a much happier picture.
The beautiful family pictures were received with great warmth by social media. Famous musician Shankar Mahadevan commented, ‘What an amazing picture !!’. Gully Boy actor Siddhant Chaturvedi also posted heart under the post.
