Mere Paas Maa Hai
Mother's day is on Sunday. Here's HT Cafe's pick of the hottest moms in Mumbai.
Mother to: Aryan and Suhana Mother since: 1997, 10 years. It all began when she was 14 and met her future husband and the future king of Hindi cinema, Shah Rukh Khan. They tied the knot and in 1997 and 2000, respectively, became proud mamma and papa to Aryan and Suhana Khan. And in between producing movies and making her rare media appearances, Mrs Khan finds enough time to cuddle up with her kiddos.
Malaika Arora Khan
Mother to: Arhaan Mother since: 2003, 4 years Love and marriage entered this bombshell's life early when she met Arbaaz Khan while shooting for a coffee commercial. After a long courtship, the duo tied the knot and then came their son, Arhaan in 2003. Full marks to this yummy mummy.
Mother to: Renee Mother since: 2000, 7 years This quintessential diva may not have got her due in the film industry but does that frazzle her? Not at all! A couple of tumultuous relationships later, she raised many eyebrows when she decided to adopt little Renee. And while mum continues to juggle her film career and love-life, she doesn't miss any of the PTA meetings or parent-kiddie interactions at Renee's school.
Mother to: Nyasa, Mother since: 2003, 4 years Kajol left filmdom at the the peak of her career to marry long-time friend and co-star Ajay Devgan in 1999. Their daughter Nyasa was born in April, 2003.
Her return to films has been an even bigger success but she's still picky about what she signs, to maximise time with her baby.
Mother to: Arin and Ryan Mother since: 2003, 4 years She broke a million hearts when she married Dr Sriram Nene, NRI from Denver. She moved to the US but is back with sons Arin and Ryan in tow. She won't leave her kids with the housekeeper, preferring to keep them busy at play school.
Mom to: Aiyana Mom since: 2006, 1 year Pillai who started her career as a model gave it all up when she got involved with the Art of Living. A qualified instructor she met her partner Leander Paes at an Art of Living course.
Their daughter Aiyana was born in April last year. Going by the gentle petite person that Pillai is Aiyana would perhaps grow up to be like her spiritually inclined mom
Mother to: Chanel and Brooklyn Mother since: 4 years This model stirred things up when she married Marc Robinson, 14 years her senior. As a mother she claims to be a disciplinarian but she can turn on the fun when it's needed.
Nawaz Modi Singhania
Mother to: Niharika Mother since: 2006, 6 months It's been less than six months since the birth of her daughter Niharika, but Gautam Singhania's wife plays mom effortlessly..and looks hot while she's at it. Besides taking care of her gym, Bodyart, she has enough time for her little star too.
Mom to: Siddharth Mom since: One year six months She may not be the conventional oomphy mom but this mom has a lot of spunk. Priya Dutt daughter of the late actor-Union minister Sunil Dutt and Nargis Dutt and wife of Owen Roncon plays mommy best even as she juggles her life has a politician.
After all it's no lean mean task to contest a Lok Sabha seat for the first time while expecting her first baby. With all the energy it is sure to get passed on the baby as well.
