He has produced some of the most popular films like Mr. India, Mili, Judaai, Prem, Sirf Tum, Hum Paanch, Shamitabh, Pukar and many more.

Talking more about it, the producer mentioned that his first wife, Mona Kapoor walked barefoot to Siddhivinayak temple from their home to seek blessings. Adding that his brother stood by him, Boney said:
"Besides losing your own money, you have lost money which you have borrowed. My wife was there. She walked to Siddhivinayak temple barefoot. My brothers stood with me."

"My marriage to Sri took place in Shirdi, on June 2. That’s when we exchanged vows. We were there, we spent the night there. And it was only in January 1997, when her pregnancy was seen, that we had no choice but to marry publicly. In public, we were married only in January 1997. There are still some scribes who write that Janhvi was conceived before marriage."
