Mumbai, Oct 15 : Versatile actor Boman Irani says he was truly “honoured” to meet Mumbai’s world famous Dabbawallas, who are known for efficiently ferrying lunch boxes all over the city.
The actor met them for a session on Bloomberg UTV’s business reality show “The Pitch” Wednesday, said a press statement.
Boman even flagged off the dabba delivery for the day on Dabbawallas’ request.
“Meeting the Dabbawallas of Mumbai is an honour. I was hoping that they don’t turn us down because of their busy schedule and I am truly humbled by this gesture,” Boman said.
“The Pitch” is a show for aspirants who have business plans that they perceive viable and potentially profitable, but lack the funding to execute the plan. A prize money of Rs.5 crore will be given to the winner.
