Katy Irani is a Bollywood legend , having worked with all the old big banners , great evergreen Indian heart throbs and super stars , she is retired now and lives comfortably in her ancestral property at Bandra Bazar Road with her son daughters and grand children..her son works as a Junior artist too .
Katy Irani is a kind lady , humble to the core giving respect to all religion culture ad visits the Fire Temple daily to offer her thanks to Ahura Mazda for keeping her happy and contend.
Her daughter in law is a Christian so she completely cosmopolitan... we share some good memories of old times when I would see her on the sets of MKD Films .. RK Films ,,,
Easily recognizable in black clothes during Moharam , the mourning time commemorating the Martyrdom Of Imam Hussain Grandson of the Holy Messenger , the Shias have a large presence here at Bandra Bazar and adjacent areas of Bandra including Bandra East.
Regular Majlis at Shia houses and the Shia Khoja Mosque at Bazar Road , regular afternoon majlis at the Ladies Mehfil are a feature that brings other Shias here .
There are many Shia processions during Moharam, The Guru Nanank Park juloos , Ali Reza Shirazis juloos to name a few , The Shia youngsters do a lot of social work, donate blood and are in the main front during important Shia events.
The Shia community of Bandra prides in living in mutual coexistence with the rest of the people of diverse culture and religion , even their processions and events brings people from other communities to share the pain of Imam Hussain known as Ghame Hussain.
At the Shia Khoja mosque a lot of kids from poor families are given help for further studies and vocational guidance with importance to the girl child pursuing vocational training and community help for the needy.
