While Boney admits being a foodie, he revealed that his daughter Janhvi's maintaining a diet chart for him. "Janhvi has fixed a diet for me. In fact, it's one of our family friends who specializes in it. She and Janhvi have decided what I should eat," he added. Boney also recalled how Sridevi wanted him to lose weight eventually giving it up.
"Unfortunately, she isn't here to see me in better shape"
