For me everyday is Mother’s Day. Everyday in our life is due to my mother.
“Mere paas maa hai…” from Deewar is one of the most quoted dialogues amongst all the dialogues that have managed to make it large in bollywood. Indian cinema has always had its pillar on emotions and the first emotion in the world is that of a mother and child. Here is an array of the various roles played by mothers in bollywood.
We can never forget this landmark role in our life. She happened to be the best mother actress till now.
The strong and sturdy, mother India(played by Nargis) was indeed a portrayal of the strength a mother’s soul bears. A mother who single handedly raises her kids and then goes on to stand against her own son.
Which Indian wouldn’t know the dialogue: “ mere karan arjun ayenge”. This role played by Rakhee jee says it all about a mother’s unconditional love. She doesn’t know the whereabouts of her sons. All she knows is “aasmaan ka seena cheer ke ayenge”. As they say, a mother just knows.
4. Jaya Bachchan
Jaya Bachchan’s roles as a mother will always be remembered as that of a mother who has silently been observing and mourning to herself but never spoken out loud except when she goes to the extent of calling her husband only “Pati” and not “Pati Parmeshwar”, “kyuki Parmeshwar se kabhi galatiyan nai hoti” he separated a mother from her child. Jaya bachchan will always be remembered as the mother of fortitude.
5. Kirron Kher
Kirron Kher, the most graceful looking mother of the industry as always been the coolest of all mothers. She is the supportive mother who has always been by her child’s side, come what may. She goes to the extent of accepting her son as a gay in Dostana and fighting a queen for her daughter in Khoobsurat. She is the mother of today’s generation.
6. Zohra Sehgal
Speaking of mothers, one has to being with the oldest on screen mother, Zohra Sehgal. I just couldn’t miss an opportunity to pay a tribute to her. we will always remember her as the mother who was cool and frank in her own way of imparting wisdom to her kids.
