TV actors Tejaswi Prakash, Helly Shah, Niti Taylor, Devoleena Bhattacharjee and others take their pick from Bollywood moms.

Mothers can be as much about melodrama as about love and care. And what defines melodrama better than our own, desi, Bollywood? As we celebrate International Mothers’ Day, Hindustan Times got TV actors to name their fav Bollywood moms.

Tejawsi Prakash

Jaya Bachchan has played the unforgettable role of Shah Rukh Khan’s mother in Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. She was full of care and love.

Niti Taylor

I remember Farida Jalal in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. When it comes to Faridaji, an image of a a sweet mother whose only concern is the well-being of her children comes into mind. She mostly essayed the archetypal mother in movie and television shows.

Devoleena Bhattacharjee

Kirron Kher is one of the most beautiful actresses and has played glamorous and fashionable mother in Bollywood movies. She is beautiful and fits perfectly in the role of a glamorous mother of today’s generation. Her best performances are Devdas, Rang De Basanti, Veer Zara, Om Shanti Om and Dostana.

Helly Shah

Kajol has played mother’s roles in movies like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Fanna and My Name is Khan. I remember in K3G, she was so conscious about getting her kid to learn Indian culture.

Yuvika Chaudhary

DreamGirl Hema Malini, played the perfect mother in the recent movies. Baabul, Baghban, Veer-Zaara are some of her best movies in the role of a mother.

Mahika Sharma

I am huge fan of Sridevi and she played a wonderful mother in the film Army. She took care of her son in difficult times. She again ruled the screen as today’s mom in English Vinglish. Soon she will be seen in Mom which will be another hit from her bag for sure.

Tanya Sharma

I loved Dimple Kapadia’s role in the movies like Pyaar Mein Twist, Welcome Back and Cocktail and many more. She looks just perfect in the role.

Roop Durgapal

Reema Lagoo worked in most of the Rajshree films where she played a graceful and loving mother to Salman Khan, Govinda, Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgan, Sanjay Dutt and many other superstars. I loved her most in Maine Pyaar Kiya for the way she understood and help her son to get back her love. She can portray any kind of role be it comic, grey or cute.

Amrapali Gupta

Ratna Pathak Shah played the modern-age mom perfectly well in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane na and Khoobsurat.
