Daisy Irani is an Indian television actress, director and producer from Singapore.

She was born to Gujarati film actress Padmarani and stage director Namdar Irani, a Zoroastrian family in Bombay, India.[1] She is best known for appearing in the role of Daisy in the popular Singapore TV series Under One Roof. She became the executive producer for MediaCorp Studios English Entertainment Productions Division. Since 1 June 2007, she has been the head of MediaCorp TV12 Central Programming and Promotions as well as MediaCorp TV12 Creative Services Division.[2] On 19 October 2008, Kids Central and Arts Central were merged to form Okto, while Vasantham Central became a full-fledged channel as MediaCorp Vasantham, occupying the original Central channel and effectively making the channel defunct.[3][4]

She moved from Mumbai to Singapore[1] in 1991 when her husband, Subin Subaiah, was posted there for work.
