Boman Irani and wife Zenobia welcomed their first grandchild on July 3 and have named him “Ziaan”! Boman took to Twitter to announce the baby’s arrival, born to his elder son Danesh and daughter-in-law Reah. The couple had got married in 2011. Boman’s younger son Kayoze is a bollywood actor and has appeared in films like “Student of The Year” and “Youngistan”
What is interesting to note perhaps is Bollywood’s fondness for these rhyming names set in trend by none other than Karishma Kapoor! She naming her son Kiaan Raj Kapoor (born March 12, 2010) seems to have set “iaan” names in motion!
Shilpa Shetty followed up with Viaan Raj Kundra (born May 21, 2012).
And, Riteish & Genelia Deshmukh with Riaan Deshmukh (born November 25, 2014). The newest born Ziaan Iraani is simply continuing the fad!
Now, only time will tell who amongst Kiaan, Viaan, Riaan and Ziaan will rule the roost in Bollywood!
