On Mother’s Day, Bollywood celebs talk about the bond they share with their mothers, and what makes their moms special
My mother makes the best avial: John
Thank God I’ve got someone in my life who devotes time to social causes. My mother is the best mom anyone can have. She makes the most amazing avial. Also, no one can beat the baingan ka bharta (mashed eggplant) she makes.
My mom is my biggest critic: Imran
My parents got divorced when I was one-and-a-half years old. So, I have no memories of the days when my parents were married to each other. I was brought up by my mother... The biggest critics in my life are my mother and my wife Avantika.
My mom taught me to be proud of myself: Vidya
My mother is a very compassionate person. And, she taught me to be proud of the fact that I am a woman. For the longest time, she’s been telling me to learn cooking, but except for making tea and coffee, I am not inclined to cooking at all. I think I’ll be a disaster.
My mother is dedicated to charity: Katrina
I am happy that my mother is so involved (in education and charity). My mother, at a very young age, had decided that she wanted to dedicate her life to social causes, to NGOs (Non Government Organisations).
My mother got a ring designed for me: Deepika
On my 21st birthday, my mother gave me a special ring because I am very fond of rings. In fact, she got it designed personally. My mom’s very honest in assessing me, and says that she forgets I am her daughter when evaluating my performances.
My mom means the world to me: Bipasha
I’m very blessed that I have a wonderful mother who took great care in raising her daughters. One day is not enough to thank my ma and all the mothers in the world.
