We all know that working in the media industry introduces artists to many people regularly. The unimaginable joy in such an industry is when someone is reunited with an old friend after many years. This is the exact joy that actor Boman Irani experienced recently when he ran into a photographer friend of his, Vikram Pathak, after 24 years. The two crossed paths in New York City where they agreed to work on a photoshoot together. Boman Irani shared pictures of the photoshoot on his Instagram account and they are a delightful sight. In his post, Boman Irani admitted that he agreed to Vikram’s offer for a photoshoot very casually but his friend had punctually arrived at his hotel room very early in the morning.

We’ve come full circle with this amazing shoot. @vikrampathak and I. He assisted me 24 years ago during my photography days and then he moved to the USA 20 year ago. During my last visit to New York City, I bumped into this amazingly talented gentleman and he suggested that we should do a photoshoot together. For old times sakes. Over a drink, I casually said okay and agreed to a time. 5:30 in the morning, my hotel room door knocks, and boom. There he was. Vikram!!!!!!! It was such a fun shoot. So so so proud of you. Wish you the best always. #PhotoShoot #VikramPathak #FunShoot #NYC #NewYorkCity #PicOfTheDay
