For those who don't know, Honey Irani started her career as a child artist in the film, Pyar ki Pyas. Honey Irani got married to Javed Akhtar on March 21, 1972.

Honey Irani believes in living life to the fullest, and she added another jewel to her already bejewelled hat by becoming a children's writer. On December 6, 2022, Honey was present at the book launch of her two children's books. The interesting part is that she has kept the name of her storybook on her granddaughters, Shakya Akhtar and Akira Akhtar.
However, it was Farhan Akhtar, who was super proud of his mother. He shared pictures from the book launch event and rooted the loudest for his darling mommy. The actor penned how happy he is and hoped that she writes many more such stories. Farhan's note can be read as:
"So proud of you mom. These children’s stories are sure to bring joy and inspire a love and curiosity of nature in all who read them. May these be the first in a long line of books to follow."
For those who don't know, Honey Irani and Javed Akhtar co-parented their kids, Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar. In fact, Shabana Azmi also had a great relationship with Javed Akhtar's children and grandchildren. In a media interaction, Shabana had heaped praises on Honey for not maligning her image in the minds of her kids.
Well, Honey Irani is a perfect example that you can live your dream at any age!
