On the special occasion of Mother’s Day, actors from Indian television pour their hearts out about the most special woman in their life: their moms.
Karan Patel: My mom is the vice principal of a school. She has been in the teaching industry for more than 40 years. I think I have learnt how to be disciplined and dedicated towards my work from her.
Karan Wahi: For me, it would be patience and nobility. I have also learnt that strength of character is the most important thing in life. Just because someone throws dirt on you doesn’t mean you need to do the same to them. A dignified silence is much better.
Sanjeeda Sheikh: My mom would always tell me that beautiful things happen when you distance yourself from negativity. So, the quality of staying positive and happy is something that I have imbibed from her.
Karishma Tanna: Since childhood, I’ve been a hyper kid. My mother kept me calm all the time. I have always admired her, and like her, I have learnt to be positive. She also taught me how to see the best in people. She believes in forgiving and forgetting. I am blessed to have her in my life.
Namik Paul: I remember when I was admitted in the hospital for a week, my mom dropped everything and slept on the sofa and refused to leave me alone. That was really sweet memory. Mom is always been someone who’s gone above and beyond to make me and my sister happy, so almost all my memories are very sweet with her.
Roop Durgapal: As a kid, I was extremely naughty and stubborn. Once while going to market with mom, my eyes were stuck on a toy Rifle. Mom was not keen on buying that for me and I started throwing tantrums and even threated to sleep on the road only unless I was given the toy. I started studying for that but even before I gave that test the toy rifle was home. Not just for me but for my sister too. That’s my mom.
Mahika Sharma: Every mother-daughter relationship is fraught with challenges at every stage of life, and we still have our fair share of misunderstandings. But we have learned to communicate openly and make up with hugs. Yes, when we are free, we talk about our common interest and gossip.
