Award-Winning Indian ScreenWriter

Honey Irani is an award-winning Indian screenwriter.Honey Irani was born into a Zoroastrian family on January 17, 1950. She was married to Javed Akhtar. Although the marriage ended in divorce, it produced two children, son Farhan Akhtar and daughter Zoya Akhtar.Both her children are critically acclaimed Indian filmmakers. She is the maternal aunt of choreographer/director Farah Khan and director/host Sajid Khan(director). Her sister Daisy Irani was a famous child artist of the 50's and 60's.

Honey Irani began her Bollywood career as a child actress with roles in films like Chirag Kahaan Roshni Kahaan and Bombay Ka Chor. She has acted in over 72 films.Later, she became a successful scriptwriter.

Kya Kehna, Honey's most recent hit is the story of an young girl who decides to have a baby out of wedlock. It is interesting to note the manner in which such sentimental topics have been handled by Honey. In fact, Honey has a knack of turning unconventional storylines into hits. This is evident in the case of Lamhe (younger woman falling for much older, surrogate father figure) and Kya Kehna (on being a single mother). It hasn't always been smooth sailing for Honey. Some of her flop films include Himalayputra, Laawaris and Parampara. Interestingly, whenever Honey toes the conventional storyline she invariably delivers a dud. 

With Kya Kehna, Honey has been labelled as a bold writer. There are, however, certain limits on Bollywood's willingness to be 'bold'. Hence, many of her scripts have no takers.
